Hi,


1. 夏はビールのジョッキ大に限るよ。

What does 大に限る mean?


2. 「・・・ハリーのはずがねえです。俺は魔法省の前で証言したってよう がす・・・」

What is ようがす? (I think that sometimes this character does not speak in grammatically correct Japanese.)

ジョッキ大 / に / 限る
ビールのジョッキ大 means "a big mug of beer". This is used in a bar/pub menu.

2)
It's いいです in a rural dialect.

Thanks,

1) Could you explain what に限る means here?

2) Is that いいです as in 言い・です? Is this itself standard Japanese?

It's いい as "good". ~たっていい is a colloquial way of saying ~てもいい.

1) Oh, sorry, I see now that に限る is actually listed as a set expression in WWWJDIC. I'm sure I looked it up. Oh well.

2) Duh.

Thank you!
