i learned that らりるれろ often turns into ん but i guess sometimes it also turns into っ huh? i think i've seen it in other places too like 寝るから -> 寝っから possibly.

@Flaw so are you saying that そんなの could refer to the "tempting offer"? because that makes a lot of sense in context. (sorry, i couldn't find a scan)

@Pacerier I think it was in the first or second chapter of volume 19 of the manga. I'll try to find a scan later.

comment This use より baffles me
"A Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar" seems to indicate that the way the verb 思う combines with より is an exception: "Either a noun phrase or a sentence precedes yori. When verbs precede yori, they are usually nonpast. However, there are a few cases where past tense verbs are used, as in その試験は思ったよりやさしかった。"

ah thanks!!! that answers my question! i wasn't looking for a reason why, i was just sort of confused if that's what was happening or not. so if i'm understanding right, "the time when you were a teacher" would be あなたが先生の時?

is there any way to use a phrase of the form あなたが〇〇だ (where the circles are some "no-adjective") to modify a noun, like 時, where the copula is explicit, or somehow present? or is the "pinch" example the normal/only way of doing that?
