Japanese - Under Construction
Actually, I've realized that it will take forever to type up all this
stuff. And also that I have no site traffic, so nobody will even be reading
this stuff. So, I'm not planning to finish this section anytime in the near
future. It's incomplete and has errors.
Okay, there's a lot here, but it's all surprisingly regular and systematic, for the most part.
