comment Couple of classical Japanese questions
My source actually has 来 and 残 despite the other kanji being 旧字体. This might be an error on the source's part, or a compromise for readability. Did you see any other inconsistencies?

@istrasci: Do you know whether the two words are etymologically related?

comment 手を貸す and 'lend a hand' - coincidence?
Sounds plausible. But if I remember correctly, the idiom 一石二鳥 turns out to be a calque from English, so stronger evidence that 手を貸す is not a calque might involve showing it was attested in earlier stages of the language.

comment Etymology of とにかく
Is ともかく similarly from a ともかくも? Also, did と leave any traces in the modern language? If it means the same as modern こう, it appears unrelated to any modern こそあど forms beginning in k-.

comment The origins and mechanics of pitch accent in SJ compounds
Fascinating answer, but can't possibly explain why the same character with the same Chinese reading could yield different pitch accent patterns.

comment The origins and mechanics of pitch accent in SJ compounds
Forgot to source my claim for 地下 — I got it from Kodansha's Romanized J-E Dictionary, which says that they get it from the NHKアクセント辞典 except taking the first of multiple accents where there are more than one.
