From the first episode of Death Note:

まったく くだらねえ

Is くだらねえ slang for くだらない?

  • くだない -- You meant to type くだない?

1 Answer 1



Changing of vowels at the end of words to え

Meaning of "ねーし"

Pronouncing ない as ねい / ねえ (also ~oi to ~ei)

  • This is hardly an answer, though it is helpful.

    @jarmanso7 I understand how you may think it is too short, but this answer actually directly answers the question asked also demonstrates one important SE policy: answers should not go in the comments. I couldn't have commented with the info but I didn't.

  • Well it's not about the length, it's about the fact that it is a link-only answer. I agree with the SE policy that answers should not go in the comments.

  • @jarmanso7 Well, I appreciate the criticism, but I do think saying it is a link-only answer is inaccurate and unfair, and to be honest, a distortion of the facts. I showed the word inflection which is exactly what the questioner asked. I felt unqualified to explain the cultural and historical aspects of that change, so I linked much existing great answers. To say "it's a link-only answer" is just ignoring the question and ignoring my first line.

  • Okay, besides the 4 links, you included a single word (without an explanation), and therefore it's not a link-only answer. Still, it lacks context and explanation, which is one of the reasons why link-only answers are discouraged.
