comment Difference between 誠, 実, and 本当
Yes, it's similar to how English "truly, really, actually" mean almost the same thing and are sometimes interchangeable. I tried to give examples that show when you would hear these words being used more specifically in everyday situations. Like, you say 本当の気持ち but you don't say 実の気持ち.

comment The origins and mechanics of pitch accent in SJ compounds
I can't actually answer that for specific examples like 感謝 and 感心, because modern Mandarin tones are different from medieval tones. But you can see that 1+2 L+E, for example, would be different from 2+2 L+E.

comment Were western soldiers called “鬼畜{きちく}米兵{べいへい}” in WW2?
Also Curtis LeMay was referred to as 鬼畜ルメイ, because the air raids he ordered killed hundreds of thousands of civilians.
