comment The sound made when eating
The terms "gustatory sounds", "gustatory noises", or "sounds of gustation" might fit best with what the OP wants.

comment Why don't writers make more use of the word “abracadabra”?
Abracadabra is a mnemonic for the Latin alphabet What is your source for this? Also, where else have you seen Efragahefra or Ijrakalijra?

comment Punctuation mark for the odd, weird or unusual
Depending on how this text will be presented, maybe you could use some sort of font style change such as a different colour or font?

comment Punctuation mark for the odd, weird or unusual
I'm guessing the Five Pointed Star is used the same as an asterisk? End of Aya and Start Of Rub El Hizb sound like they would be used to mark the begining or end of a specific type of block of text. Place of Sajdah... Maybe some kind of placeholder?

comment what is the term when the kingdom ruler changes through an assassination
...changing the king in a quick time through assassination... I'm not sure if there's an existing term, how about "Revolving-door Monarchy"? Is there a specific episode in history that you are thinking of?

comment Is it OK to use “empty-handed” on an animal?
@Mari-LouA: Saying the seagull was "empty-beaked" would probably work.

comment Can you end a sentence with a clitic like “they're”?
Maybe there is a rule for that (I'm not really sure), but I have never heard anyone speak like that.

comment Why is it wrong to say this sentence 'I'm afraid I forgot my homework at home
Why do you think it's wrong? Who told you that it is wrong? The meaning of the sentence is very clear. It might not be the most formal way to phrase this sentence, but I don't think it's wrong (or at least not in an obvious way).

comment word for the act of each person in a group put in some money combined to buy something
@RodgersandHammertime: Example: "Bob can't have any pizza because he didn't pitch in when I went to buy it!" I would normally expect to hear chip in in this context, but I've heard pitch in on occasion and the meaning would be clear.

comment “She got her first child” vs. “She had her first child”
I think the phrase "...for getting Madame Julietta with child" refers to getting Madame Julietta pregnant, but the phrase "Madame Julietta had a child" would suggest she (successfully) gave birth.
