I am trying to translate a manga and I stumbled upon one sentence with the Grammar I have't studied yet. So if anybody could tell me its meaning and the usage of V+teta maruka (ie; Tabetetamaruka or mitetamaruka) for me, I'd be appreciate. :)

I think "V + teta maruka" is "V + te tamaru ka", and this means "will not to V". It icludes strong will.

Got it. ^o^

So, ka isn't a question right? ^^; That's what confused me.

"ka" is often a question ,but not every time.
"mono ka" is "反語/han go".
Han go mean negative.
And ,"mono ka" includes especial strong negative will in other Han go.
"tamaru ka" is a variety of "mono ka" in colloquial style.
