comment さまよう vs ぶらつく vs うろつく for the sense of “to wander”?
@ssb Thanks. Though I am a bit curious why 出歩く is included here. While it might be going out walking, I didn't think it implied there was no specific destination or direction, which I would read into wander or roam.

comment What is the meaning of りゃ in this phrase?
@TokyoNagoya I see the difference. But how do I know the meaning of なんて, as "What/How" as used in a question as above, or "What" used like 「なんて厄介なんだ!」 "What a headache!" (example from space ALC), where the meaning is more like "such" and not asking a question. (Maybe this should be a new question...)

comment Which is the proper way to say “I don't X”?
I found a couple of articles that talk about stressing the contrastive marker は. I've heard it this way but I can't say if that's the same as raised pitch, as I am not a native speaker. jlptbootcamp.com/2012/02/japanese-particles-the-contrastive-wa phon.ucl.ac.uk/home/reiko/Proceedings-WAFL5.pdf

comment Is there a background to the phrase 「熊出来てる」?
@syockit It was based on what I heard, くま. I should have checked further to get the correct meaning.

@snailboat I see. I was thinking there was some hidden meaning. But it was only my bad translation...
