comment What exactly is ありき?
@Jesse Your comment got me interested. Turns out, this story was based on actual events. There really was such a person, Sugaya Tokuji, and his letter translating shop was on that street. articles.latimes.com/1985-12-25/local/me-21169_1_love-letter

comment What is the difference between 見える【みえる】/聞こえる【きこえる】 and 見られる【みられる】/聞ける【きける】?
By the way, on a phonentic, tangent, "rareru" iften becomes "reru" in speech. This change has a name: it is called "ranuki" (ら抜き). Removal of the "ra".

comment Can there be such a thing as のんでましょう?
You will never get much more than that of anything, no matter what. There is no search in which you can actually scroll through a million results. Google results are capped. Which is not to say that the "hits" number is some exact count (it is an estimate), but going exhaustively through the search doesn't disprove the number. It doesn't mean "this is how many results you can scroll through below".

I agree with you. You have to read some of what is actually being "hit". There could be misspellings, or substring matches that don't even mean what you're looking for (like the suffix of what you're searching for is actually a fragment of another word).

comment What is the たて in 取れる+たて?
About your question; sorry, I dare not hypothesize any more about that. The answer you graciously accepted also "works for me" and the "decision stands" analogy fits intuitively. The idea that "standing" is a cross-cultural metaphor for persisting in a state appear sound.

comment Is there a difference between んがため and ために?
Aha, I seem to remember one of the answers I pointed to in that discussion discusses む versus ぬ. I will go back to that and read it in detail.
