I'm trying to translate this video -> link and the following is the transcription

At 1:42






My question is how to tell if this means "the beginning and the ending are repeated or will be repeated?"

  • It's not なって. This って is the quotative particle.

"It really makes me feel/realize once again that we repeat the beginning and, (erm,) the end"

He's saying they actors regularly repeat starting and ending working together every time they produce a work.

According to デジタル大辞泉, the な here is used in the sense of:

な 1⃣[終助]
3 活用語の終止形、助詞に付く。

It's a 終助詞(sentence-ending particle) indicating exclamation or admiration.

「『~~な』と思う」「『~~なぁ』と感じる」「『~~な』と実感する」 etc. are common ways to state one's impression or feelings.


  • 英語って難しいなあって改めて感じました。
    I really felt once again that English is difficult.

It does sound like he said [繰り返す」、 but I'm going to guess he meant 「[振り返す]{ふりかえす}」. See if "going back over" works for you in context. (If it does, I assume you'll know the answer to this question.)

I'll withdraw this. I should have backed up a bit further than I did to listen. Chocolate is right.
