I usually just rip pieces off with my hands and dip it in my curry. How about you?
No! Wait, I actually have a real question. Does anyone know much about the - what seems to me to be fairly random - insertion of なん in spoken Japanese?
I’m not talking about real questions, I mean things like: 「面白いなんだけどさ。。。」
Does it mean anything specific? Is it just a kind of hesitation device, like なんか (which I never learned but suddenly started using all the time)? I sometimes can kind of feel it on the tip of my tongue when I’m speaking, but since I don’t really understand what use it has, I always stop myself from using it.
