comment Are there native Japanese numbers greater than 10? What use are they?
Then is [十八番]{おはこ} somehow related to this? I'm trying to use the logic you presented, but failing to see how the と(お) would get shorted to just .

comment Using 次 as a counter
二次会 does not have . Is that due to its somewhat informality? Also, for planned events, what about compared to like 第10周年記念日 or something?

comment What is the meaning of もらう here?
今日は京都大学の田中先生に来ていただきました is only different in politeness level. It still means "I got prof. Tanaka to come" or "Prof. Tanaka did me the favour of coming." If you want to change your ex. sentence, it would have to be たくさんの人 *が* 読んでくれたい which 1) sounds weird anyway to say くれたい, and 2) changes the focus to their action instead of your desire.

comment Sentence structure for complex sentences
This sentence should be ...公園 **を** 散歩しました. See Making sense of transitive usage of 行く and 来る - 「を行く」 and 「を来る」 for reasoning.
