comment “なし” used for both animate and inanimate things?
親たち isn't really valid for 'one's two parents', it means more of 'a group of parents (necessarily several families' worth)'. Outside of very modern uses with personal pronouns, たち can't be used for just two people.

comment Are most kanji characters morphemes?
Would you consider it still 'one morpheme' if part of the morpheme ends up in an okurigana? (e.g. in 読む the morpheme break is after /m/ and not after /o/)

comment どのような and a particle soup
I don't think you can add a と after か here - with embedded questions, you just use か. You would add と to quote a question (with e.g. ~かと思った).

comment The nasal allophones of /g/
I'm definitely used to pronouncing the non-nasal version after ん, but I'm not a native speaker. Still, I've heard there's some variation in regards to that environment.

comment Is it okay to say 日本語を好き?
Yeah, it seems to be most acceptable when it's buried in a subclause.

comment What is the meaning of そう君と二人 in the sentence below?
I would consider that phrase to be 「君と二人で」, not just 「君と二人」 - 'together with you (君と) as a pair (二人で)'.

comment Etymologically why do some words have explicit potential sense while others don't have?
I'm not sure what you mean by 'natural to those verbs'. I would say that they used to be applicable to all verbs and no longer are.

comment How are the adjectives conjugated to izenkei (うれしけれ, たのしけれ) used here?
I'd describe kakari-musubi not as 'patterns that emphasise sentences', but rather as a focus agreement system. Whenever you use ぞ or こそ, the verb has to agree with them.
