|khyron||The usage given in the formation section for なＡ・Ｎ does not match that of the example of ex #6262, which suggests that instead of:|
なＡ・Ｎ + とか
it should instead be
なＡ・Ｎ + だ＋とか
|khyron||I checked and confirmed with a native speaker that when using this grammar after なA・N that the formation is indeed なA・N＋だとか.|
Additionally, this is found mainly in novels, whereas a conversational equivalent would be と聞いた・と聞きました.
|karekano||I just know とか with the meaning of 'like'. Or is it the same thing?|| |
