comment Use of the question mark and か
Do you mean that all 3 sentences are spoken alike but only written differently, in which in #3 does the "?" imply the "か" sound?

comment What are the differences between じ and ぢ, and ず and づ?
I saw one in a sign by the road in the country today. It said "あずまや". I think it was for a soba shop. Any ideas which case this was?

comment What are the differences between じ and ぢ, and ず and づ?
@Boaz: Aha thanks I was wondering about rendaku but forgot to put it in my questions. Do you know of any dialects that preserve a greater distinction? And does this mean that the sound change came after the widespread adoption of hiragana (whenever that was)?

comment Giving something to oneself
Whether the semantics is odd or rare, which is the same for all languages, does not prevent the possibility of making a grammatically correct statement. This is a perfectly valid question of grammar for a sentence that can easily be translated into the European languages I know. This is a language site, not a semantics site.
