Kind of a japanese newb here. I've googled this a bit and haven't seen anything except demo vs temo comparisons. I understood that these words all kind of mean "but, well, so, anyways"....am I way off base on this? And if not, what are the subtleties or grammar rules governing each one?
「じゃ」is colloquial form of 「では」.
I think it's no easy to explain here...
「では」emphasises, for example: 「東京では物価は高い」. This means, prices (costs) are in expensive in Tokyo, having in mind than it's cheaper in other cities.
「でも」: Let's say you can accomplish 1 task in 2 different ways. Method 1 is better than method 2, but it's achievable with method 2 as well. So you can use 「でも」as follows. Method 2でもできる。I would translate 「でも」as 「as well」or 「as well as」.
Hope this helps.
