comment Is there a kanji for しか?
Yeah, more a potentially interesting "fyi" than anything. The more I look the more I think しか just doesn't have kanji... I wonder how it was written in manyougana?

comment Is there a kanji for しか?
I don't think しかし and しか are related etymologically, but on the off chance... 然し is the kanji there

For what it's worth, the forvo link sounds like it matches the dictionary pronunciation to me.

I guess probably the limited scope of 機 words that would have sentimental value?

comment Specific differences to consider between any individual katakana and hiragana?
Exactly. There are times where it's almost always written one way or another, but it's a matter of convention and not a specific property of the writing system.

comment Is 行かされた a typo?
OK never mind. I concede the point. I've been careful lately about not posting inaccurate answers, but I was just so sure about this one.. so I'm pretty shocked to learn it's actually wrong

comment Katakana ダメ to end a sentence - emphasis?
I could, but the question isn't really about the differences between the three as much as it is what the sentence means. If you want to make a separate question about the differences between てはだめ・いけない・ならない I'll gladly write an answer for that discussing it
