まあったりまえでそけどね ???

Post by Albus » Thu 03.18.2010 1:26 pm

Someone wrote to me:
--> 日本語できたんですか まあったりまえでそけどね.
I don't understand what this phrase means: "まあったりまえでそけどね"

However it might be a good idea to provide more information.

I'm not entirely sure, but to me it looks like a mushed up version of:
まあ当たり前(あたりまえ)でそうけどね。

I believe you are along the right lines, but I think that the final でそけど is just a typo for ですけど

あたりまえですけど
Does that phrase mean "It's natural, isn't it?" ???

Yes, but it's not a question.
It means something more along to lines of "But that's only natural"
