comment Is this って equivalent to 「と」?
@Chocolate: It seems to me that simply casting 「って」as a casual variant of 「は」could be very misleading. Can it introduce a topic of conversation in the manner of 「は」: sure, but that may just as easily be analyzed as「って」being a elision of「って言うのは」(and there's probably historical usage to support that analysis). Does「って」carry to same contrastive connotation that「は」does, that is, can it be used in a construction such as「AってBって」parallel to the usage of「AはBは」: probably not.
