This means "no matter what reason there is."
Usually, Japanese people say "理由が何であろうとも" instead.
|Miki||"理由が何であろうとも" would be used especially in speaking. In written form, "いかんにもよらず" is often seen.|| |
|samboki||A better translation for # is "The number of municipalities where you can take the employment test regardless of nationalty is increasing.|| |
|LR||@nikonniko Same meaning, different usage - as with a LOT of grammar. 名詞＋を問わず is a straight forward easy to use phrase, appropriate for most language situations. |
名詞＋の＋いかんを問わずis more formal, appropriate for written language, archaic?
|LR||There are loads more examples over at where the entries are kind of 混ぜている.|| |
