comment Is “forte” pronounced “fort” or “for-tay”?
@TRiG You've never made a blanket fort? :-p Seriously, though, I think you're right. I've heard it for certain kinds of defensive emplacements (ie. Fort Knox) but not dwellings.

comment Do you say 'white blackboard'?
@MT_Head: Writing over permanent marker (ie. Sharpie) with dry-erase markers will usually allow erasure of the permanent marker as well. I have a whiteboard that's been gridded with Sharpie, and it needs to be touched up every so often because the erased dry-erase marker leaves gaps in the grid.

comment Intention of rising pitches
There's a distinct difference between the increased emphasis in your examples and the rising tone in the OP. In your examples, the words you've set off with "^^" could be read as if italicized. The rising tone in question, as I understand it, is read as if the "^^" were a "?" tonally. They're both rising tones, but they're not the same rising tones.
