comment Difference between 間【あいだ】 and 間【ま】
No, the rules aren't that clear. 間{かん} is a word, and 間{ま} appears in compounds such as 間近・隙間・間違い・間際・居間・手間・間口・谷間・マヌケ and in the lexicalized adverbs 間もなく and いつの間に.

comment 夏目漱石‘s use of question marker かい for an open instead of closed (ie yes/no) question
@Tim For question 8, I didn't really think it was about い, but really just a question of whether you should include の. I'm not sure I can say か or かい alone is actually wrong, but I think using の would be more common / more natural there (whether you add a following か or not).
