comment is “こっかい” a heteronym?
You'll find the most famous one is the distinction between 橋 and 箸. I think that's one that changes regionally, and I've been quizzed several times on how I say it.

comment What is the difference between 経験 and 体験?
I'm thinking right now of 職場体験. Aside from the fact that this is a set phrase, would you theoretically be able to switch in 職場経験 and have it mean roughly the same thing? Does that match your criteria for a single and new incident?

sometimes, but not always. that distinction is I think what is being used to explain the answer to your question.

comment Making sense of 「出てったって待ってて」
I'm not sure "went out" would be the most accurate way to say this.. of course it depends on context, but I think we can probably intuit that the speaker is talking about something bigger than something like leaving a building

comment What is the origin of ポイ as in “タバコのポイ”?
To me ポイ is one of those words that just clearly matches the action it describes.. is there a way to find a first recorded use of it at least?

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.

comment What kinds of things can be an 愛機?
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
