comment deconstructing それが元で
I have read this question several times and am thinking either the answer should already be obvious to you, or I don't understand what you're asking. Do you realize that you can have practically any sentence ending in で and then follow it by another sentence?

comment Is 〜がりや limited to just a few words, or can it be added to any adjective?
I also hear 寒がりや and 面倒くさがりや quite often.

comment Etymology of もん・もの
I agree that the questions are quite similar, but the accepted answer on the original question simply states "because it's not a noun, but a particle". I wanted to understand the etymology of the particle, which is not answered by the original question. If I had seen the question before, I would probably have written sth. like "I saw this answer, but it doesn't answer my question about the etymology of もん・もの". In any case, snailplane answered my question.
