comment What does adding お at the end of a word change?
Reasonable reasons for leaving it out!

We do mark pronouns as accusative (as actually comes up in your example ^_^) - 'I' translates to 私が or 私は, 'me' translates to 私を (and sometimes just 私).

comment Is the 'h' in Japanese pronounced the same as the 'f'?
I'm not sure exactly how it works out in regards to regional variation and so on; all I know is that I most definitely have heard both [ɸɯ] and [hɯ], and consistently one or the other from a given speaker. (I suppose this counts as 'original research', though I assumed it would be mentioned somewhere.)

@非回答者 足りる etc. sure, but 足る? Or am I just horribly misinformed?

comment What's this -れり ending?
You're right about that, I don't know that I've ever seen 足る outside of fossilsed or deliberately archaic constructions. I picked it for its equivalence. I'll edit and make that clear, though.

comment In 君が代, what's the function of の?
I know in Old Japanese (pre-790s) の could mark the subject of basically any non-main clause - I know for sure it could appear with conditionals (with -ば), and IIRC with quotations (with と) at least also, as well as with まで. Not sure when this stage ended, though, so I can't answer the OP's whole question.

comment When was 歴史的仮名遣い standardized?
I'm pretty sure that by about 1900 it was fairly well conventionalised, but I don't know if there was ever a formal standard propagated. I do know that the kana ん was officially added around then, though; so there must have been -something- it was added to.

comment A Deeper Look Unto て, で and は
Yeah, but there's no reason to think that に is an adverb (and て attaches to the ren'youkei, not to adverbs); and the distribution could be due to different factors entirely (such as no one really needing to express the idea conveyed by にて particularly often).
