comment Particle の in this sentence
in 注目の試合, 注目 modifies 試合. when you have の, there are many many ways in which the first noun can modify the second noun, and you need to use context to choose the most appropriate interpretation. if you simply think of 注目の試合 as meaning "the match of attention", it's pretty obvious how "attention" is modifying "match"; it means "the match which everybody's attention is on".

comment meaning of て-form + られない
I guess my question is more about the potential. Here, "can't be (dead)" means "unacceptable proposition" right?

comment meaning of て-form + られない
So the implication would be, "the idea of being dead (sinderu) in a place like this is unacceptable to me"?

comment what does てやる mean when it is not used for giving?
i've seen examples of this where it kind of means "-te miseru". it seems sarcastic to me. i think there's also a sarcastic usage of kureru, like when somebody does something that inconveniences you.

@DariusJahandarie Yes you're right, I should state the argument I'm making more explicitly. I'll edit it.
