comment Etymology of “よう” in “豆腐{とうふ}よう”
I can't find anything about its etymology in the dictionaries I have, but 広辞苑{こうじえん} gives the kanji as 豆腐餻. By the way, I searched BCCWJ for both 豆腐餻 and 唐芙蓉, but both came up with 0 results. 豆腐よう had 3 results.

comment What is the difference between は and が in this sentence?
Although it's rare, I do find a few examples of 〜していはしない in BCCWJ when I search for ていはしない. Would you star those examples as incorrect, too?

comment Is there a Japanese equivalent of knock-knock jokes?
Some children improvise knock-knock jokes. A lot of children learn them from joke books or from their friends and then repeat them.

comment Understanding Japanese verbs
The edit removed the source of the OP's confusion. This would unfortunately invalidate existing answers, which is something edits should not do, so I rolled the edit back.

comment Using を/に+伴う and meaning of 後接させる (+ 現場指示 and 文脈指示)
I believe 現場指示 and 文脈指示 are deixis and anaphor.
