comment Why is 五右衛門 read “goemon”?
Was the original pronunciation goue or gōe? I guess actually goue, same as iue? That's indeed something of a tongue twister... :) Makes sense.

comment When did you last…?
@Pacerier I'd read this as "The last time you saw her was when?", as in "The event when you two parted never to see each other again happened when?"

That's actually quite different, there it says それだけ.

The makes this pretty ambiguous IMO. If you read this with a pause after and/or stress on だけ, I'd say it means "don't eat that". Without the pause/stress I'd read this as "don't eat only that". Have you seen this written like this or just heard it? Do you have more context?

That seems terribly ambiguous to me without context or voiced stress... -_-;;

comment What is the etymological connection between sake (alcohol) and sha-ke (salmon)?
I'd ask for a [citation needed] on this. There are a ton of homophones or near-homophones in Japanese which are not necessarily related. Not saying they aren't, but it seems awfully obscure. :)
