comment ても “even if/though” doesn't seem right
The reading 急かす【せかす】 isn't included in the Jōyō kanji chart, so I added furigana.

comment をも… what on earth this particle combination?
@ssb Maybe an answer could usefully describe when を is omitted before も, and when it makes sense to use both together.

comment What is the difference between Okaa-san/Onee-san/Ojii-san and Kaa-san/Nee-san/Jii-san
I think that Japanese can be formal, polite, both, or neither--that's what my books say, at any rate. (The distinction between formal and polite has always been challenging for me as a learner, to be honest...)

comment How do the two が in もう止まらない あなたがあなたのことが恋しい work?
@rintaun As we discussed in chat, these are actually song lyrics. For some reason, lyrics aren't usually written with punctuation, so the comma is left out.

It would be a little easier to understand your questions if they were written in proper English.

@rintuan Oh, there's nothing wrong with deleting and posting a new one, if that's what you'd like to do! :-)

comment The の noun… does it have any intrinsic meaning?
Do you have A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar by Makino et al.? It describes these uses of の on pages 315 through 322. I think you might find it helpful (although it doesn't answer your question as written).

comment ほぼ and ほとんど: What's the difference and how do you use them?
I think we should avoid edits that invalidate existing answers, and adding those four terms would do just that. Users can always ask additional questions.

comment What's the difference between 生む and 産む?
@JensJensen Take a look at the older forms of 生.
