comment Why does 「でならない」 not mean “does not become”?
ならない is idiomatic, so in most dictionaries it has its own entry, explaining how it's different from なる. I also found 〜てならない in A Dictionary of Advanced Japanese Grammar, pp.605-8.

comment Use of が vs を with transitive verb, 受け入れる(+もらえる)
@EiríkrÚtlendi There are a number of reasons not to consider these constituents subjects, and to consider them objects instead. See The Oxford Handbook of Japanese Linguistics, p.142-146 for five arguments, along with an argument that they are not passive.

comment Development of なんか?
Could you give an example or two so we can make sure which なんか you're talking about?
