|anon||is this like 構わない？ that always struck me as a strange word, translated as "don't care" but used as "that's fine" in a positive way.|| |
|Miki||そうです。ず here implys negative and those examples can be reaplaced with も構わないで、. 'mind' is tricky for me when it's spoken. || |
|boytokyo||I remember it by the translation 'without regard to'|
It sounds more formal, but it works with things like: This company hires regardless of age or experience.
|andre||why is mo used before writing kamawazu?|| |
|Zio||Maybe it's used for emphasis?|| |
|ninja_k||guess: It's a scope thing... vs は and が it sort of makes sense to use も. は would open up all sorts of possible things, が would be too restrictive. the も would stem from nothing at all AND the original action... just guessing|
