comment Differences between 度 and 回 when counting occurrences
I also don't consider there to be any difference in nuance. Your point about cyclic motion with 回 seems valid enough, but 大辞泉 defines 度数 as nothing more than 回数. It's an interesting idea, but I don't think you can necessarily jump from a claim about repetition to a claim about volition. If we're talking characters, the 'every time X' construction ~度(たび) certainly doesn't hinge on intention/expectation. (And while we're counting occurrences, there's technically also 次, which has limited use in Japanese (第二次世界大戦, 二次会, etc.), but is the basic counter for occurrences in Chinese.)

Sorry, I wasn't actually intending to disagree with you, Tsuyoshi :( I've edited my post above to be more clear.

comment Separate kanji for おそい when referring to being late and being slow
Or even more, how 暑い・熱い differ on character alone, but antonyms 寒い・冷たい are wholly different words. One wishes for symmetry, but it's not always to be found -- often owing to the asymmetry between polysemous native Japanese roots and the meanings of the Chinese characters imported to represent them.

comment The role of と particle in 「二度としない」
My apologies, I was mistaken; should've checked 大辞林 myself :) It's still true in a practical/intuitive sense though, that 二度と has stuck as a very common expression, whereas the 'productive' cases are extremely infrequent.

comment Where's the negation in 〇〇も書けなりました?
The typo hypothesis is especially plausible given the amount of people who may be typing on a mobile phone. With regard to Google hits, I may hesitate to cite them in a paper, but they're still an undeniably useful heuristic, especially for comparing two similar strings that return results differing on the order of a couple decimal places. Oddly though, Hyperworm's "ができなることを" only returns 57k results for me (showing little variance between browsers).
