comment In which dialects have the sounds “ゐ” (wi) and “ゑ” (we) been preserved, and are their kana still occasionally seen?
@repecmps: There are several writing systems for Okinawan (it's best not to call it a dialect in English, because that would lead to confusion with the Okinawan dialect of Japanese, which is an entirely different things).

comment Is there a difference between この小さな街で and 小さなこの街で?
As far as I know, it's just a more poetic word order. And the most accurate term form この・その・あの is a probably demonstrative determiner, since it's neither an adjective nor a pronoun.

comment What are the main differences between 京都弁(Kyoto-ben) and 大阪弁(Osaka-ben)
Or put a "go-to-sleep" sign. I can read it in Kanji, but at these hours I mix up things... Anyway, your question is a bit hard to answer, since it really depends on whether you mean the old classical Kyoto dialect (which is often shown on TV, but is probably not much spoken anymore) or the modern Kyoto dialect, which has far less differences from the dialect of Osaka.
