comment What is it called phonetically, when Americans change the pronunciation of “pronunciation” to “pro-*noun*-ciation”?
I agree with your answer: this is leveling that maintains the stem. But I disagree when you say the rest of us aren't recreating the reduction every time we pronounce the word. I'm pretty sure I would do the same [aʊ] -> [ʌ] reduction for nonce words with -ation suffix, such as razlound->razlundation, spennouct->spennuctation

comment What's the meaning of the symbol ‡?
You may be thinking of U+2260 NOT EQUAL TO (decodeunicode.org/en/u+2260), which looks similar to U+2021 DOUBLE DAGGER (decodeunicode.org/en/u+2021)

comment Can/should I put a comma before a phrase's time specifier?
+1 In these examples, the comma is only acceptable/necessary if the time phrase comes first: 'While the others were out, I ate lunch.' (comma necessary)
