@EiríkrÚtlendi: I've revised the question to make it clearer.

comment Modifying adjectives: カンペキ [に or な?] 思ったとおりの仕上がり
I think the important "easy to miss" nuance here that 思う is taking the more creative meaning of "imagine" rather than just "think".

revised why is it that some 形容動詞 accepts の after it while some only accepts な after it?

comment What are all the nuances and uses of 至る? (に至って) (に至っては) (に至っても) (に至る)
If you add the example/question you struggle with to your question somebody might be able to explain. At the moment your question is a bit broad.

comment What are all the nuances and uses of 至る? (に至って) (に至っては) (に至っても) (に至る)
It sounds like you understand 至る (basically reach/arrive at some point, possibly in an abstract sense) but the challenge is the differences between the so called "basics":〜て〜;〜ても〜;〜ては〜;〜まで〜 etc.

comment Is this は replacing が or を? (& is this 悪 read as あく or わる?)
Thank you but I think you missed my question: Is 暴力 an object, probably marked by を or a subject marked by が (or possibly even by some definitions, and objected marked by が)? There is an ambiguity. Re:悪、I am fairly sure it is わる but wanted to check. There is some interesting chat on all this.

That is an interesting comment on why は is used but you are not answering the question.

comment When is 「だ/である」required between a noun and the quotation particle と?
Comments in chat on 14 June 14 from Yang Muye: "I don't know the grammar of ことと. But many expressions used in Chinese letters seem ungrammatical to me, so Maybe it's just an idiomatic expression.Oh , it might be 「ご盛栄のこと と お喜び」: ご~の is the 連体形 of ご~だ. Although 盛栄 itself is a noun, it can't be modifed by adverbs like 時下ますます.But it seems that this と is lightly used instead of を. ますますご清栄のことと存じます"
