comment Is the interjection おう really a Chinese loanword?
What about 唯唯? It was written that way in the oldest cite in 日本国語大辞典. Does that give us a clue?

comment Is ごめんなさいませ idiomatic?
In the Balanced Corpus of Contemporary Written Japanese (BCCWJ), there are 0 results for ごめんなさいませ, compared with 1824 results for ごめんなさい. That doesn't mean no one ever uses it, but it does mean the version without ませ is much more common.

comment Is the interjection おう really a Chinese loanword?
I don't understand the edit. 日本国語大辞典 lists it under おお, though they say it's been variously written as おう・おお・あう・わう・をう, among others.

comment The 普通形 of a verb in Japanese - future and habitual interpretations
But it depends on the predicate. If it's stative, like in かごの中にうさぎがいる, then it's generally taken as describing a present time situation rather than future, unless the rest of the sentence or context indicates otherwise.
