comment Kamon with Camellia Sinensis flower
Welcome to Japanese Language SE! I've voted to close this post because it doesn't seem to be about the Japanese language as defined in the help centre (here: japanese.stackexchange.com/help). Maybe someone in chat can help you!

英語に翻訳すると冗談がわかってくる(と思います)けど、日本語でやっぱ魚の集まりって「群れ」って言うんじゃないですか?日本語話者にでも「魚の集まり→『学校』」って‌​いう冗談がわかるんでしょうか?

comment About 忙 and 忘 using same radicals but having different meanings
It may well be simple convention. 'They both sound like 亡 and have to do with mental states, so let's just say the one with the 心 on the side is 'hurry' and the other one is 'forget'.' I don't know that there's any real way to prove that theory, though.

comment Is there a difference in meaning between 何時間寝ますか and 何時に寝ますか
(I wonder if I jump to 眠る since, as someone with insomnia, 寝る時間(つまり横になってる時間)は時に実際に眠る時間(意識を失ってる時間)とかなりの差がある(´・ω・`)

comment IPA transcription of kana づ please
I am 100% certain that Japanese uses [ɕ] and not [ʃ]. I hear the difference quite clearly, and many of my native-English-speaking friends mishear [ɕ] as /s/ when I pronounce Japanese for them (not as /ʃ/, as one would expect if Japanese used [ʃ]). No linguist I know of uses 'ʃ' for Japanese except out of convenience or unfamiliarity.

@JAFHopkins I think I'm mildly confused by w/ɯ maybe getting mixed up(?) and am not fully sure what you're trying to say, sorry!
