Is this something where you would naturally say: 「俺は余計なお金が持っているので、仕事を辞めとく。」? Zengor at 2017-04-06 13:46:47 UTC Your sentence doesn't sound very natural at all. I can't exactly correct it since I don't know what nuance you were trying to give. 余計 often has a pretty negative connotation (though not always), especially when used as a な-adjective. It's most commonly seen in sentences like 「余計なことを言うな」, "don't say too much"; and 「余計な世話だ」, which is a sort of warning to stop someone poking their nose in someone's business. Here's another example: 「余計な謙遜は必要ない」 "There's no need to be so modest" -- here the sentence itself isn't negative, but it's saying the modesty is 'too much', unnecessary, NeverEndingQuest at 2017-04-18 01:26:02 UTC 余計な料理人 Log in to reply.
