comment Is the negative form of 住む related to すみません (i.e. “I'm sorry”/“Excuse me”), and how is it used in actual conversation?
@blutorange Maybe we could turn the discussion on cognates into a separate question.

comment しな at the end of a sentence
Do you think you could ask your ~てくれ question separately? We'd like to keep things to one question per question here on Stack Exchange.

Here's how Samuel Martin explains すみません: "The verb すむ means 'comes to an end, terminates; settles'. From these basic meanings a number of others are extended, as when すみません is used to mean 'there is no end to [my rudeness or obligation] = excuse me; thank you'." (Martin 1975 p.546)

comment Help me understand the grammar of this sentence: ~のこと~のこと、~なってもらえたかな
Notably, こと can't be a subject, so adding 〜のこと forces the listener to understand it as a nominative object (but here with nominative が replaced with も).
