comment Why does Japanese lack word wrapping?
Maybe because Japanese doesn't have spaces?

comment Why should we say 応えられなくなってきて and not 応えられなくてきて?
I wonder if it has to do with the verb being stative/dynamic. Even without negation, こたえられるようになってくる sounds better to me than こたえられてくる.

comment Why should we say 応えられなくなってきて and not 応えられなくてきて?
That is true. But I think it's a little different since it's negated. If you look at the case of おく, it is possible to use ~ないでおく. But I'm not sure you can do the same for くる.

comment Can ~たり~たり end with verbs other than する?
How can you account for the quote in my answer below? Is the novel using "informal speech"?

comment Can ~たり~たり end with verbs other than する?
I understand your point about 立ったり、座ったり、働くときの姿勢, but do you really think this same logic works for 自信を持って話したり、笑ったり、食べる事が出来る? It seems like a stretch. Isn't it more likely that this means 自信を持って話したり、笑ったりして食べる事が出来る?

comment How is “おらず” used in the following sentence?
I can't find a source, but I don't think there's any humbleness implied by おる here; I think it's just used because おらず is a nicer form than いず. Along these same lines, I've also seen ~ており used as the 連用形 of ~ている.
