comment ことができる versus V~える form
this makes sense to me cause i was under the impression that you couldn't use the potential form with intransitive verbs because they fall into this special group verbs (begins with 無 i think, sorry for being of little help here). So in that case i think you could get away with the ことができる

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
