comment When to use 欲しがる instead of 欲しい
@derek great response. I edited my question to show what i was trying to say with my japanese sentence. It was asking if my teacher wanted me to eat vegetables. threw the てほしい in there to make it more complicated, but i don't think it changes garu usage

comment the difference between じゃん (jan) and だろう/でしょう (darou/desho)
Just a question on できたじゃん, is that the shortened version of できたんじゃない with んです or is it perfectly fine grammar meaning something else? Was always under the impression that it needed a 「ん」 in there

this sounds like a dialect more so than standard Japanese. I don't believe i've ever heard this before.

Yes dave you are correct in that it means 1 coin, but ever reference I have seen and heard so far has been that it means 500 yen coin. Though it is interesting that after 1 coin is written in Ito's link specfically says 100 yen and the gyudonya near my works specifically says 500yen. But what about in conversation where you don't have the qualifier afterwards stating what it means?
