You mean "u-verbs" and "ru-verbs". Those labels don't make sense in kana (hasir-u is an "u-verb" but 走る ends in る, not う). You could call them 五段 and 一段 instead, though.

Be careful of Google Books results you haven't verified with actual books or pictures of books. Their OCR has lots of errors in Japanese.

comment Japanese: “osowarata”?
In Japanese singing, geminate consonants aren't usually held for an entire mora. Instead, the previous vowel is sung again for most of the mora, followed by a very short "gemination" at the end. So instead of お・そ・わ・っ・た, it would usually be more like お・そ・わ・あっ・た. That said, I'm not sure why /r/ would be inserted between the repeated vowels. There are similar processes, though! In singing, a non-phonemic w is commonly (but not consistently) inserted between repeated occurrences of /o/. Perhaps it's something like that?

comment Combining a noun phrase with an adjective
@MarioCarneiro I think that you could ask about 先週に versus plain 先週 in a separate question and get a more detailed answer about it.
