comment Is 「意味の分からなさ」 strange?
I'm pretty sure that that is right actually, since verbs in their potential forms work with -なさ (or so it seems to me, anyways), confirming that the necessary condition is stativeness.

comment What is 〜んだ and how is it used?
FWIW, 〜のだ is a bit hard to explain in totality due to all the different ways it can be used/interpreted. The 大辞林 entry is probably a reasonable place to start, though: kotobank.jp/word/%E3%81%AE%E3%81%A0-596938

comment “Something came up” in Japanese
(I'm aware I'm nitpicking, but...) wouldn't 「てしまいまして」 be more appropriate for most business situations?

@seafood258 Take a look at the alc results for "をしまう".

comment What is the difference between spellings しまう、仕舞う、終う、了う?
「しまう」 is used commonly as a regular verb, and even in those cases it's almost never written using kanji (although using kanji is more acceptable here than when it's being used as a 補助動詞). 「戻す」 has a different meaning ("to put back" as opposed to "to put away").

comment 名詞の修飾と「~か」・「~かどうか」についての質問
@vincentlin いいえ、"I don't know if he will come or not."という意味だと思います。「彼」は構造的には主節にありますが、意味的には、「来る」の動作主になると思います。

comment Help with the translation?
@usukidoll This いった is actually 言った in terms of meaning. But, これといった is an expression anyways and is probably best understood as a single unit.
