So maybe this doesn't apply so much directly to teaching english, but I'm translating this manual between Jenglish, Japanglish whatever you want to call it, into good'n'proper ole' American. I was wondering if anyone might be able to explain to me the difference between the word "function" and the word "functionality," because it seems that in this wonderously translated manual, they have used them interchangeably. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

To be honest, I don't think 'functionality' is a word so much as it is marketing speak. I can't think of any context in which I'd use functionality that 'function' wouldn't sound better.

Does that help? (Okay, I guess the answer is coming a bit too late, eh?)
