    I'm learning Korean too so let me attempt to answer this with what I know. 놀라워라. I've never actually seen this word in that form before. But I know 놀라 comes from the world 놀랍다 which means shocked/surprised/marvelous/astonishing. So you are right to say it comes from the verb 놀랍다. As for the 어라 part, I'm not too sure too.

    집착하다 simply means to obsess about/over or it could mean stick to. eg customs

    질투하다 means to be jealous/envious

    If I am wrong hopefully someone else corrects me as well. Cheers ^^

    놀랍다(amazing)is adjective that descirbes someone or something, not a verb gives information on what someone is doing, what happens, something moving.
    adjective 놀랍다+워라=놀라워라
