I translated into google translate and the meaning is casual. What "casual" things that suit with this word? Is this word means "merely" ?

Thanks in advance

It means casual in the sense of.. casual, unconcerned, without much attention. However, I believe it would not be used for "casual" when referring to look or clothes.

Consider the following sample sentences:

  1. 何気なく言った言葉も誰かを傷つけることがある。

Even a casual remark could hurt someone's feelings.

  1. 彼女はその本に何気なく目をやった。

The girl had a casual glance at the book.

Do the above example clarify the meaning?
