|blabby||My book says that this is for a strange or unexpected event.|
However, my book says it is only used for Verb(辞書形)+なり, but I have sometimes seen cases of Verb(た形)+なり from other sources. Does anyone know which is correct?
|Miki||Verb(た形)+なり is used in a different way. It implies one movement is continuing. 〜したまま。|
会社を出たなり、いつまでも帰らない。He left the office and hasn't come back.
彼女を見つめたなり、しばらくの間微動だにしなかった。He stared at her and didn't move an inch for a while.

|dc||that sounds like a totally different nari, so i created a new page for it: nari2 || |
|b4mb4mb4m||What about a (noun)+なり？|
The nari is after 不可能 which is a noun or na-adj.
Any idea what nari means here?
