-からいえば/-からいって are also used instead of -からいうとbutthe meaning is same
This is a bit like "point of view" but more based on an angle of the problem than the viewer.
So, it's just like [上]? 計算から言えばこれで正しい is a correct sentence?
Yes, it is. You can also say like 計算上(で)は、これで正しい。hmm it's just like 上.
is that 上 a [uede] or [jyoude] ? I guess from the example it is uede, which i thought was more "upon" than "based on" - ie implying a careful thought and conclusion. whereas "based on" is more like a conclusion is obvious, based on the information... is there that same difference in japanese or are they the same?
Please see [uede]. I don't think からいうと implys a careful thought and conclusion.
計算から言えばこれで正しい is somewhat awkward - 計算からするとこれで正しい is preferable.
I think #6368 meant to say 言語 instead of 言葉
hey razortm, I`ve heard 言語 and 言葉 both used to mean language.
