comment Why switch the reference from “גוי” to “עם” in Tachanun?
Also, is it then the "שארית" that makes the distinction? That though it's the full nation, it's the remainder of the state. Then the question of why remains but this helps get there.

In English, that means goy = nation vs. am = state... sorta. Neat!

comment Why is Shimshon buried “in the grave of his father” and not father and mother?
@TamirEvan I wouldn't think it was strange except that literally every other time his father is mentioned (post-birth), he's mentioned with his mother. Maybe that's the answer? that it only had to do with Shimshon being alive?

@DoubleAA To be consistent with the rest of the story, it should be בקבר אביו ואמו

Unrelated, but the research for this answer led me to this question.

@msh210 "There is no difference between /ʔadär/ #1 and /ʔa:∂är/ #2 except megillah, matanot l'evyonim," a dagesh, and a shortnened patach.

@IsaacMoses Thanks. Honestly, it was the first thing I thought of when I saw it. I actually hadn't realized the b'kever Manoach aviv part until I went digging. I should look up what real commentators said about this...
