comment Siri's pronunciation of ふ
Thanks, @snailboat! The article mentions: «Saito Yoshio (2003, cited in Watanabe 2009) states that [ɸ] always appears when followed by a voiceless vowel [ɯ̥] mentioning examples such as as [ɸɯ̥kɯ] (/huku/ “clothes”), and is therefore significant when examining the pronunciation of /hu/.» I should try making Siri say "ふく".

Comprehended your answer after the second rereading. Thank you!

comment Do adjectives/adjective-like verb forms in informal speech need a copula?
食べます being a full verb predicate doesn't need a copula. A copula, as I understand, is a verb to make predicates out of non-verbs like adjectives and nouns. E.g. Snow is white – "is white" is a predicate.

comment Does the word 津波 (tsunami) have negative connotations?
If the word is sometimes used figuratively and represents the concept of power/energy/abundance, it's OK for me to use as well (the project is a waveform visualization). Thank you!

@istrasci, thanks! Maybe I should call it okinami.js (just to be safe).

@snailplane, oh, the long vowel. Sounds feasible, since you can trace a diphthong becoming a long vowel even in the spelling.
