    Yeah, that's my feeling, too...that it's kind of a musing "~, eh?" sort of word.

    I heard one of my JTEs say it recently, but I didn't catch what preceded it. The emotion he was expressing was exactly that, though: "how 'bout ~" or "~ should work, eh?"

    I haven't heard いいべ, but だべ is the same as だろう.

    I learned a lot today from joking with a teacher of mine - she said it sounds ridiculous coming from someone my age and for some of them, she doesn't even use them but her parents did (she's in her 60s or 70s.)

    梅干しー めぼし
    きときとな as in きときとな魚 or (fresh fish)
    ありがとう ー あんがと
    馬鹿「ばか」ー だら
    妻 ー じゃーま
    素晴らしい = すったらこい
    ーだぞ = ーやじ

    This came up today: here's some expressions and such I picked up:

    んでがず(す?): そうですね。
    せっかくどもない: どもうありがとう
    にゃ: Uh, maybe like ね or な?

    Those first three are used in Saga too. (Although we say "Nan shiyotto" a lot too. I hear that more than "Nani shiyotto" in my area.)
