comment Oldest Japanese Pronunciation for “When Is It?”
The OP might be interested to know that いつ today is not pronounced the same way as Old Japanese いつ was. Today is tsu, but it was originally tu; that s didn't appear until Late Middle Japanese (A History of the Japanese Language, Frellesvig p.322).

I taught myself to write before I began school, and my letters are all written opposite the way I was supposed to write them :-)

comment What is this い sound change?
A note for readers: [ẽ] is the nasal version of [e], and [ĩ] is the nasal version of [i], and so on.

comment What is this い sound change?
Metathesis is when sounds switch places, but no sounds have switched places in たいくかん or (what the OP incorrectly hears as) ぜいいん. Your other examples seem to be proper examples of metathesis, as they do involve sounds switching places.

comment Meaning of 言われ + ても
Personally, I think this is one of the places the "even if" translation doesn't work too well.
