comment what's a ポッカリ (pokkari)?
Since sometimes onomatopoeia morph to have the small っ (e.g., やはり→やっぱり), does this come from the form ポカリ, and if so, is it the same one as Pokari Sweat?

comment Expressing 'if so'
@Earthlin: the "as" can be seen often in the form 〜として (「〜の資格で」; see examples in definition #1 here). The supposition/assumption case can be seen in ex. 815 here.

I disagree that と is the quotation particle here; it's the "as"/supposition particle.

comment Why do some loanword sounds get “abbreviated” when katakanized, but not others?
I don't know where you're from, but I disagree with you about "menu" and "piano". I definitely pronounce them as "men-you" and "pya-no" resp., and not just to play devil's advocate. And FWIW, I always enunciate the /h/ "wh" words. :D
