comment What does さちゅえい mean?
Some (if not many) Chinese pronounce it that way. I had a few Chinese friends, and they could not pronounce very well, and it always came out as ちゅ.

I don't understand what you mean by "Do counters have any reason for their 'assignment'?".

comment Is を[noun]に, as in を条件に, a common construct?
I think it's a contraction of 緊縮を条件に して, but I'm not positive.

comment Are most counter words made up of two parts? What are those two parts called?
Where did you "poke" around to find this? 助数詞 is correct, but I'd be more apt to say instead of .

comment Is there a logic behind the different endings when counting things in Japanese
Agree, this question is a little vague. What do you want to know the logic of? Why certain words use certain counters? The kanji (if any) of the counters? Why the counter for 3 usually has 濁音?

comment At what level should we be able to understand Yojijukugo?
From my experience, I don't recall them appearing on the JLPT, but it's been a few years since I've taken it, so I suppose they could be now. From my mental approximation, they appear on the Kanji kentei ("漢検") around level 6 or 7, which is probably about a 4th or 5th grade level. If that helps at all.
