    difference between danga and iya'

    I found these words while watching anime. What is the difference of the usage of these words (danga and iya') as both of them seems to mean(in english): however or but.

    I might be wrong though

    “danga” seems to be a dialect of “dakedo” and it means: however.
    While “iya” means “No”, or "I hate it.", "I don't want to do it." in some different contexts.

    hmmm...,

    I found another comparison:

    "danga" and "demo"

    Both seem to mean "however", right?

    PS: I don't learn japanese formally. Just watching anime

    Yes, "demo" is "but", however I don't know "danga". It's not standard Japanese.
