comment In what situations can you use "ぞ” as a sentence ender
I'm also curious. Teaching English in Japan I've heard this from a wide range of people. From adults to children (as young as 8). However I'm not sure of the nuance nor what impression it gives.

comment The difference between が and を with the potential form of a verb.
I disagree with this being a duplicate. That focuses on the subject and topic particles in general, whilst this is focusing on two particles, they are not the same and are in a focused context.

I have asked a Japanese co-worker and she told me that Japanese people don't say anything after another person sneezes.

comment Usage of なんて and なんか as emphasis.
Thank you for the further information. Especially the history of the word. I find knowing the history actually gives me a better "feel" of the words.

comment Why are the particles “は” (ha⇒wa), “へ” (he⇒e), and “を” (wo⇒o) not spelled phonetically?
I'd just like to note that を is sometimes pronounced as "wo", especially when it comes after a ん sound. For example 本を読みます。
