comment Are there cases when two or more particles will occur next to each other without intervening lexical words?
@hippietrail: including the interjection particles ね and さ? If we put ね aside... Well you do have わよ, and の is commonly used before the particles with a meaning of question or uncertainty: か、かな and かしら. And かな itself is essentially a combination of two sentence-final particles: か and な.

I'm not quite sure how a native speaker gets what they did on Dictionary@goo, but the line between な-adjectives and noun is definitely blurry, so it wouldn't be too surprising.

comment What does the “〜やしない” conjugation mean?
@Lukman: I don't think so. As far as I know, it's just a slightly elided form of は.
