東京にいるソフトウェア開発者です。 最近は主にC#関連の開発をやっているが、C/C++もJavaにも経験があります。

一応日本語も英語も出来ますが、英語は中々使えなくて毎年少しずつ忘れている気がします。

日本語の歴史的変遷や語源に興味津々で大学で勉強してきました。 特に奈良と平安時代の上古~中古日本語が詳しい。 残念乍ら、その研究で中々生活が出来ず、代わりにソフトウェア開発をやっています。

他に韓国語にも興味はありますが、得意とはまだ言えません。

A software developer.

I am fluent in English and Japanese.

In my free time, I enjoy reading. I have a background in historical Japanese linguistics.

@3to5businessdays Sure, the possibility exists. that's why I listed sources for such usage; the older the better.

[Continued] There are several later manuscripts that do give kana readings for several numeral terms in 日本書紀. One I gave above is the 13th century 兼永本. Note that 日本書紀 was written in 720, but a 13th century annotation does not mean that the original 8th century text was actually read using that reading.

@3to5businessdays There is no evidence for the readings, though. I'll quote the original: "十六年夏四月。小野臣妹子至自大唐。唐国号妹子臣曰蘇因高。即大唐使人裴世清。下客十二人。従妹子臣至於筑紫。遣難波吉士雄成。召大唐客裴世清等。為唐客、更造新館於難‌​波高麗館之上。 [...] 十七年夏四月丁酉朔庚子。筑紫大宰奏上言。百済僧道欣。恵弥為首、一十人。俗人七十五人。泊于肥後国葦北津。是時。遣難波吉士徳摩呂。船史竜、以問之曰。何来也。対曰。百‌​済王命以遣於呉国。其国有乱不得入。更返於本郷。忽逢暴風、漂蕩海中。然有大幸、而泊于聖帝之辺境。以歓喜。" There is no way to know how 十二人 or 七十五人 is supposed to be read here. Same with the other passages.

comment Is the negative form of 住む related to すみません (i.e. “I'm sorry”/“Excuse me”), and how is it used in actual conversation?
I would suggest that 住む and 巣 are cognate.
