Even forms that appear unusual at first can be explained as part of a regular system. Don't worry. If I may cite a Spanish example: The verb tener 'to have, to own' has those forms in the present: 'tengo 'tienes 'tiene te'nemos te'néis 'tienen Irregular, right?

1 No.
2 Yes (/ɾ ɲ/).
3 Dunno.
4 Depends on what derivations you're going to create.
5 YES.

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Finally, I began writing the syntax section of my Early Middle English reference grammar yesterday.
