comment What does これも at the start of a sentence mean?
It may just be my English brain protesting the start of a sentence with an "Also", but here is the context: 今の文学青年はセンチメンタルになることを怖れている。これも傷つけられるのを怖れる一種のさもしい心のあらわれかも知れない。

comment What does ちゃい in やっちゃいねぇ mean?
I know you weren't looking for a translation, that's why I suggested you reword your question, not change it. And I don't really know but I would guess that it's just short for やっちゃいない.

comment What does ちゃい in やっちゃいねぇ mean?
Welcome to JLSE! We generally frown on asking questions like this, because it looks like a simple translation question. It looks like you're trying to understand what the ~っちゃい form is short for. It's good that you've included what you think it isn't, (but for the record, why do you think it is not やっちゃう) but if you reword your question to ask about the underlying grammar of what is troubling you, it will be less likely to be closed. meta.japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/796/…

Oh, thank you man, I actually had a whole other question lined up, but my copy and past skills (and brain skills) are not up to snuff today :)

comment What does 正宗で大根を切る。 言い出しっぺ。 mean?
@summea: I did sort of debate with myself as the phrases do seem to be idiomatic which is a bit more than a standard dictionary look-up. I don't think it will be closed at this point, especially with you're very good answer :) @ gekkostate, next time if you can just tell us what Google translated it to, and/or why that doesn't sit right/what you don't understand, I think it would be perfectly fine >^.^<
