| Comments: |
|Amatuka||In the first example 'and such like' may be implied, but nado is often used in this way without necessarily literally meaning 'and so on', I think maybe it makes the sentence less rigidly precise.|| |
|Amatuka||The second example is the standard 'list' usage. The particle 'ya' can be used in place of the commas.|| |
|dc||等、、、 is also used as english "etc..."|| |
|halx||なんか and なんて have the same meaning but are colloquial terms. Another usage of those three is when you don't think much of something or contem something.|| |
|Futaro||Ex.3218: Isnﾂｴt apple :ringo?|| |
|Miki||Apple juice is りんごジュース or アップルジュース.|| |
|mattaku||I think など, like なんて, can also indicates that the speaker is shocked or outraged. I think it's the case in this sentence: かよわいものから りゃくだつなど！|
|Weasker||Could など be used after a series of も instead of や?. For example "He stole money, the credit cards, a watch, and other things". お金もクレジットカ−ドも時計も服など盗んだ|| |
