comment おる in honorific contexts
You can search for おられ in 少女地獄 from 青空文庫 and you can see that it's used throughout the text in honorific form, especially in a letter written by a young women form Osaka.

comment Do 以上 and 以下 include the number preceding them?
Coincidentally, in Chinese, where these word came from, 以上、以下 are always exclusive. Whereas a Japanese would say 「三人以上」, a Chinese would have to say 「三人或以上」. I wonder how these words became inclusive in Japanese.

If you want to be more precise, you can use 「かそれ以上」, like「3人かそれ以上の人」。

The last time I heard the word めかけ used in a "modern" context was in the TV drama 華麗なる一族 o(^▽^)o

comment How do you emphasize a word similar to using “The” in English
Of course, there is always ザ (katakana form of 'The') かれはザ・男だ。 かれはザ・オトコだ。 かれはザ・マンだ。
