comment Why is は pronounced as わ when used as a topic particle?
So this is a kana shift, not a phonetic shift?

comment Meaning and level of 死ねばいいのに
It certainly doesn't refer to an actual death (or のに would be inappropriate), but rather, it's wishing death upon someone. Whether it's serious or not would depend on context of course.

comment Meaning and level of 死ねばいいのに
@nicolas, I gave an overall sort of meaning at the start; it's really not a particularly complex phrase, although it does seem to be somewhat common. If you have any specific questions I haven't answered, please feel free to ask, though :)

comment Meaning and level of 死ねばいいのに
Certainly, the pronoun is implied and could be yourself or a third-party. But it's still a pretty terrible thing to say.

comment What is the difference between 「はず」 {hazu} and 「わけ」 {wake}?
Ignore my previous comment; I had misread the question. I would consider either one to be opinionated in this particular case (as it's hard to be objective about the psyche of other people), but はず is probably more opinionated

comment Is there a general rule for deriving xasu→xaseru intransitives such as 死なせる from 死なす?
While that's a nice summary of the more common conjugations, it doesn't seem to cover the 死なす/死なせる cases...

Sounding weird is sort of what I mean by inappropriate - if it were an appropriate choice, nobody would find it odd :)
