The world is a hellish place, and bad writing is destroying the quality of our suffering.

Most languages only have two verbs for “to give” and “to receive”, or a variety or interchangeable words.
Not Japanese. There are seven different verbs to express the concepts of giving and receiving and you should carefully think of which one you’re about to use. The different options, indeed, convey the idea of hierarchy, as well as in-group / out-group relationship. To complicate things, the group varies according to the context (family, coworkers, etc.). Also note that the speaker can decide to address an equal interlocutor as if he were a superior, in order to sound more respectful. Good luck.
The seven verbs are:
I built the chart above to try and organize the different options. I estimate that it is accurate in 95% of the scenarios… Japanese is possibly more complex than that.

The stegosaurus below is an example of image rollover. When you roll your mouse over the dinosaur, it changes color. There is no after-effect involved here; just a switch from one image to another in a sprite. And it’s instant. In this turorial, I’ll explain what sprites are, and how you can use them to create image rollovers in CSS.
A sprite is an image file, usually a png, that combines several images. Grouping several images on a sprite allows the page to load faster because the browser only needs to make a single request to the server to load the images, instead of a request for each image.
The two stegosaurus below are on the same 375 x 400 sprite. The first dinosaur occupies the top 200px and the second one occupies the bottom 200px.
So how do we create image rollover effects using sprites?
