comment Do Japanese actually pronounce the “v” sound?
@broccoliforest Do you mean "word-internal //v// like [[b]]? If not, you shouldn't call yourself lazy, but dedicated to //v//-phonemizing Japan.

comment What do つれて and いくと mean here?
I would have preferred to see what OP made of the sentence after looking up a couple of words in a dictionary. Anyway, ロバ is not "robber" here, but rather this. Don't let Rikaichan and the Forty Japanese Browser Extensions fool you.

comment 連用形+は+せん (殺しはせん。) meaning?
I think what's missing from this post is noting that, even though せん is derived from the Classical Japanese せぬ, it's frequently used in modern Japanese in a variety of dialects and well as informally across Japan. (I'm not familiar with so many dialects, but in 九州弁 for example せん is almost a drop-in replacement for しない, like せんでいい = しなくていい, etc.)
