comment Difference between 見る and 観る?
@istrasci Or possibly 診る, which is more common than any of those three. (I think 覧る is especially uncommon.)

comment What does adding お at the end of a word change?
@Sjiveru That's true! I deliberately avoided talking about the last remnants of the English case system, though, because I was trying to keep the answer simple, and because I think word order is a much stronger marker. "Me and him are going to the store later." "It was I who killed the man." And of course, the accusative-nominative contrast exists only for pronouns, so it doesn't help for our example of "the cake".

comment Pronounciation of the hiragana け and か
In English transcriptions, /e/ and /ɛ/ are two different representations of the same phoneme, so there is no difference to hear. You can find dress spelled both /drɛs/ and /dres/ in dictionaries, indicating the exact same vowel two different ways. In Japanese, /e/ is roughly halfway between [e] and [ɛ] (The Sounds of Japanese, Vance 2008, p.54).

comment Is the 'h' in Japanese pronounced the same as the 'f'?
@LeoKing Most commonly, phonemic notation goes in forward slashes, phonetic notation goes in square brackets.

comment つもり - expectation. How to use?
I think they mean: "is it just verb plain form [that I put before つもり]"
