comment Are there any rules for choosing between おお and おう?
I'm going off the quote in the link: それが現代では、「通り」も「党利」も、同じように「とーり」と発音することが可能となりました。しかし厳密な発音は、全く同じとは思えません

comment Can 〜てなんかいない contract to 〜てなんかない?
I don't know if these forms are standard/linguistically acceptable, but basically I think the なんか version may be an emphatic version of ~ては<い>ない. And while looking to see if I could find any better references than my gut feelings, I found: japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/4431

comment How is 空気を読む translated into English?
Not an answer because I don't think this translation exists widely outside my own family, but my mum says "has no antennae" for 空気読めない.

comment It seems that 渡る is categorized as 自動詞 (intransitive verb), yet it is frequently used with を. Why?

comment Pre-Kana Kanji readings
Originally there were 変体仮名{へんたいがな} - alternate kana which originate from the alternate choices of 万葉がな. ん was originally hentaigana for む。These appear to have been in common use until 1900 (when a law was passed to stop them being used in schools). There were even, early on, alternate systems like 上代特殊仮名遣{じょうだいとくしゅかなづかい} which appear to differentiate between some sounds that are the same in modern Japanese. But I think the mapping was consistent, so 夜 was always よ (within a given system).

comment Meaning of 伝わる and AよりもB, 温かい, and て-form+から+でも
This probably needs to be made at least two, possibly three separate questions. Since the last sentence is totally unrelated, you could edit that out and make it a separate question.

comment Question on the idiom 頭が回転しない
Well, I don't know about yaks, but the hamster one is a colourful English metaphor equivalent of the Japanese (maybe not standard English, I never know when I'm using localisms)
