comment What is the て-form of みます?
@Steel If you'd like to know when ~まして would be used (outside of lexicalized phrases like はじめまして), you could perhaps ask a separate question.

comment The origins of なんだ as in 飲まなんだ or せなんだ
Martin doesn't give an etymology, but he lists なんだ→なかった, なんだら→なかったら, なんだり→なかったり, and he adds early Meiji literary usages なんだれ(ど) and んだら→なんだら.

comment What is the て-form of みます?
You seem to be conjugating it as though it's mim-u rather than mi-ru. Do you have a basic textbook?

comment Some Japanese dictionaries (e.g. 大辞林, 大辞泉, and 明鏡国語辞典) use this inverted triangle outline symbol (▽) for some kanji compounds. What does it mean?
I think some peripheral questions about things like dictionaries would be fine on this site, personally.

comment What is the rule to write furigana (ruby)?
Sure, those are the standard pronunciations. But it's not hard to find people who pronounce them the other way.
