comment For what purposes is たろう used?
You can tell which one it is by looking at what it attaches to. The one from と+ある attaches to nouns because that's what と does, and the one from て+ある attaches to 連用形 (or 音便形 in the modern language) because that's what て does.

comment How are the traditional 5 elements in the Chinese doctrine of Five Agents pronounced in Japanese?
virmaior, @senshin It's interesting that the 陰陽五行思想 page virmaior linked to says ごん while the regular 五行思想 page says きん. Maybe an answer should address this.

comment “native” Japanese words vs Chinese/international “imports”
漢語 (Sino-Japanese vocabulary) are often considered separately from 外来語 (recent loanwords) because the former were borrowed so long ago and are somewhat "nativized". Of course, both types are loans, but I think for your question it might be better to separate them out.

comment How to read single stand-alone language-name kanji?
@WillihamTotland The epenthetic /i/ and /u/ can only drop out before voiceless consonants. When the vowel does drop out, the first consonant in the sequence assimilates to the latter, producing a geminate sequence. /b/ is not voiceless, so gemination can't occur. Note that for historical reasons, /h/ automatically becomes /p/ in gemination.
