-냐 Casual Sentence Ending
August 26, 2009 by tailieutienghan
This speech pattern is often used by men amongst their closest friends. It is not exclusive to men, but it is used most often by men. And more often than not, it is used with friends that have been friends for a long time.
When this sentence-ender is used, it often portrays the speaker to be crass (thus, the reason it is used often by men). This can be considered less polite than the intimate politeness level.
This sentence ender is only used when asking questions.
