comment Me'or Einayim Maharal and Sdei Chemed
You are assuming that the Sdei Chemed had access to Maharal's writings. Is there a basis for this assumption? Does he quote Maharal in any other location that you know of?

comment Why are some words in Tanach read differently than they are written?
@user6591, The phrasing was meant to include all books of Tanach, which are by various authors, even though the examples given are from the Torah exclusively.

comment Meaning of the phrase “Tzur Chevli B'eit Tzarah” near the end of Adon Olam
@Yishai, Thanks. We do not know who the author is, and we certainly do not have any original manuscripts that we know were written by the author's hand. We would only be able to judge from any existing manuscripts that have vocalization, and those that do have a segol. I'm sure there are plenty of genizah manuscripts that include Adon Olam, and if they find any with a patach, surely we'd find out about it eventually.
