comment How do 自他 triplets of related verbs work?
Our classifcation attempts remind me of the paper "Linguistic Regularities in Continuous Space Word Representations" (research.microsoft.com/apps/pubs/default.aspx?id=189726)

comment What's the difference between 生む and 産む?
Thanks for mentioning the 艸+土-etymology. I once saw a 山 on top of 土 and have been wondering since.

comment Do “direct object を” and “directional を” occupy the same slot?
I condone this answer because it shows that syntax can feed back onto the interpretation. Also, even Englishmen can "walk the walk".

comment Can 〜てなんかいない contract to 〜てなんかない?
I think of なんか as the Japanese equivalent of the English "like" interjection. It is a sure marker for colloquialisms, allowing "swallowing" the い when transcribing the spoken word.

comment Is there any difference between じゃあない and じゃない?
@jlptn1 I don't understand what you're getting at. Lenthening a vowel can happen very easily in a language. To me it's like a dog barking "wooof" instead of "woof"- probably the dog wants to express something, but its idiosyncratic until widely adopted.

By occams razor, I do. It's probably a bit of your answers 3 and 4 and having someone with that pronunciation in mind.
