comment When should a direct object pronoun be ommitted?
@Aerovistae No I didn't! Did you mean this? « Je ne savais pas » is idiomatic, but « je savais » isn't. Yes, it's weird.

comment Mot français pour « craft »
Euh? Non, ça serait un contresens complet ! Ici « art » serait compris comme artistique, pas dans son sens devenu très rare d'exercice de l'intelligence et de l'habileté humaines.

comment Why doesn't dialogue use any identifying punctuation in French?
Comme tu le dis, ça ne répond pas à la question. Sur le fond, l'utilisation des guillemets comme tu le décris est majoritaire, mais il y a aussi des éditeurs respectés qui n'utilisent pas de guillemets, juste des tirets pour indiquer les dialogues.

What wrong assumption? It's not that uncommon to present dialogue without quotation marks, with just a leading dash on each line of dialogue. Or monologue for that matter.

You're just formalizing the rules sketched in the question. But the question asked why and how these rules originated.

Never heard of it. What is it supposed to be a mnemonic for? Is this specific to teaching French in a particular country?

comment Meaning of Qu'en in English
This sequence of two words can be used in so many contexts that asking for a translation is meaningless. Give us the full sentence you're having trouble with.

comment Gender of most recent loanwords from English?
@StéphaneGimenez “Mon facebook” is still uncommon, but gaining popularity, to mean “my Facebook profile page”. I think it's always masculine.

comment Right translation with regard to modus and tempus of “should have been”
Réponse correcte à la question principale, mais il reste quelques erreurs : orthographe de , contresens sur ignorer (c'est un faux ami, alors que rejeté ne convient pas si mal dans ce contexte), traduction trop mot-à-mot de dataset.
