I'm reading Murakami Haruki's ノルウェイの森 and, although I've come across many sentences I haven't been able to grasp too clearly, I recently came across one that was also funny to pronounce. Can anyone help me make sense of why Murakami might have written the following sentence as he did?
I understand the general meaning/feeling of that sentence, but cannot seem to understand why he would have written 「出てったって待ってて」.
From what I can gather it should be something like: 出て行ったって待っていて but that raises a question, what's that extra って doing next to the 行った? Normally that would imply that someone else referred it to the speaker (eg. 出て行ったと言って待っていて) but this does not seem to be the case here.
