comment Why doesn't 教 end in“-う”?
It's true that 教{きょう} doesn't end in /u/ (though it does end in う, this is just a spelling that doesn't reflect the actual pronunciation of the morpheme), and verbs do end in /u/ in the form listed in dictionaries (but not necessarily う), but that doesn't apply here because this is a bound morpheme and not a verb. Have I correctly guessed the mistakes you're making?

comment Why doesn't 教 end in“-う”?
I can't find a page on Wiktionary that gives きょお as a reading for 教. I think you might be mixing a couple things up conceptually but the question is hard for me to understand the way it's written, so I'm not sure.

comment The correct way of using toki
Your sentence has a number of problems unrelated to とき. Do you think you could tell us in English what you're trying to say?

comment Kanji for なくす - to lose something
@oals Oh, good point! I'm only aware of two interfaces to edict which keep the file up-to-date, jisho.org and Jim Breen's own WWWJDIC.

comment Kanji for なくす - to lose something
I think 失{な}くす is common enough that it's worth learning, even if it's not an official reading for 失 and isn't listed in most dictionaries.

@Earthliŋ I also found this question: japanese.stackexchange.com/q/5369/1478 Maybe either 5369 or 2790 should be closed as a duplicate of the other?
