In sentence:


I searched jsho, weblio and googled it and nothing. What does it mean? Is this some kind of abbreviation, or onomatopoeia?


とゆーか is a colloquial way of writing というか . It is mentioned as a colloquial form in the entry for というか in Weblio:


As well as in the EN-JP version of Weblio and in Jisho.

  • Is it somewhere on En-Jp Weblio? I am not feeling so good, about reading JpJp dictionary yet so I didn't search there for it, but thank you for your answer. I now have to learn what というか mean.

    ゆー is the completely standard way of saying 言う. What's colloquial is writing it that way.
