comment How to express “with (x) as well” and “even with (x)”
Not confident enough to make this an answer, but wouldn't (で)さえ or (で)すら work as well (formality and context aside)?

comment How to use 〜かのよう{に・な・だ}
I never noticed this before, but +1 (more) for the correct English usage of "had drunk".

comment Pitch accent of まんまと
Maybe, but your confusion boils down to not understanding those conventions. Is that not correct? If your core question is really about the pitch of まんまと, I think you should edit the question to be something like, "I'm trying to figure out the pitch for a word, but I don't understand how a certain dictionary is indicating it. Can someone tell me the most commonly accepted pitch?", and also remove the part of your question that says, and how can I understand this 13 notation?. Fine line, but I stand by my close (can't remove a vote to close anyway).

comment Pitch accent of まんまと
I feel like this is not directly related to the Japanese language; you're asking for explanation on conventions used by a Japanese dictionary. So I'm voting to close.

comment What's the difference between まだ and いまだ(に)?
@JesseGood: What part of 「今だに」と書くのは誤り indicates "current practice"? To me, that says it's incorrect to write it that way at all times. If it really stemmed from 今+だに, I don't think it would say that it's incorrect to write that way; it would probably say something like "generally you should write it as Hiragana".

I think the "on the assumption" definition works as well, if not better here. "Under the assumption that he hit his father with a blunt object, the police arrested..."

Clearing up the possible confusion that these examples were themselves facts, not usages of the word in question.

comment What's the difference between まだ and いまだ(に)?
What are your sources for the part about it being a compound of 今 + だに. 大辞泉 seems to directly contradict this (specifically, "「今だに」と書くのは誤り。").

comment Appropriate “wishes” for pregnancy
Could you just rephrase it to convey that you wish for the best outcome that doesn't carry the implication you mentioned? Something like 赤ちゃんが無事に産まれますように祈ります/願います?

comment Are there any issues with sexism in the Japanese language?
@nkjt: What's wrong with 家内? Heard/seen it used a lot. On another note, 姦しい seems pretty sexist.
