I wasn't intending to disparrage anython'e research, I'm just saying
that sometimes there IS no exact word to translate to and from,
That's especially true with some of the Japanese stuff I am forced by
necessity to read in translation. Clothing descriptions can be
particularly frustrating when the translator throws his hands up in
the air and decides that everything is a "robe."

I must confess that I often use potato starch. In my experience "starch is starch" in terms of stiffening properties, but potato starch tends to be less itchy.
