comment Attributive だろう
Extremely clearly put, thank you! As for the rule, well, I feel like any rule that is disagreeing with language used in a professionally edited novel written by a multiple-literary-award-winning author is probably some safely ignorable prescriptivism... :-)

comment What are the pitch-accent rules for compound nouns?
So I found a source on this: section 7.3 in The Phonology of Japanese by Laurence Labrune. Unfortunately, that section begins with "The accentuation of compound words constitutes one of the thorniest and most interesting issues within the domain of Japanese accentology", and then proves it by writing 32 pages on it. It all seems incredibly irregular, and I have no idea how to summarize it, but at least you can probably read that book section on Amazon if you have an account there.

Lovely question. We need more about prosody here!

comment Why is に used in 若者が元気に溢れている?
There is such a thing as が-marked objects (called "nominative objects" in the literature). I write briefly about them here: japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/26005/…

comment Is it correct to write その方がいい, or do you have to write そのほうがいい?
FWIW, I always use ほう to disambiguate it. Just makes for a better reading experience.

comment Why does the sentence combination 「situation。 explanation から。」sound awkward?
Nice! This explains why the original sentence sounds ungrammatical as opposed to just having weird nuance.

comment Why does the sentence combination 「situation。 explanation から。」sound awkward?
@Yuu I imagine both Enno and ironsand know what is and isn't used in daily life, given that they're both native speakers of Japanese. And, FWIW, this answer says "it is just a tad archaic", and I'm pretty sure "it" is referring to "ですから in this sentence" not "ですから always".
