Creo que nanse debe ser una palabra verdadero en inglés.
I think "nanse" should be a real word in English.

Pero... ¿qué pudese significarlo?
But... what could it mean?

Tja, det er nance, som i nancyboy, men det er ikke et fint ord. [D;]
Well, there is "nance", as in "nancyboy", but it's not a nice word.

Una buena pregunta. Pues, tal vez, como "dance" pero con un "n" en vez de la "d."
A good question. Well, maybe, like "dance" but with an "n" instead of the "d."

"Deber" debe estar en el presente porque el verbo anteriór también está en el presente y es un verbo que no requiere el uso del subjuntivo en el complememto
"Deber" should be in the present because the verb before is also in the present and is a verb that doesn't ]equire the use of the subjunctive in its complement.

Spoiler:
I'd let Des' correction stand. A) debería is not subjunctive, but conditional, and changes the "has to/ought to" of "debe" into a hypothetical "should" (since "nanse" is not as yet a real English word) (and this is often the way "should" is translated) (and I don't think either is grammatically wrong, just that they suggest different things. B) Also, like "me gustaría", "querría", and "podría", "debería" is not necessarily subject to sequence of tense rules.

Of course, Lam or a native speaker could always weigh in.

But I post in French, so no one can correct me! Mwahaha!

À moins que je ne fasse un faux pas et qu'une personne observatrice et gentille ne le remarque.
Unless I make a mistake and some kind, observant person notices.

Je suis d'accord.
I agree.

Je pense qu'un nanse est une personne agitée.
I think a nanse is a restless person.

D'abord, on a abrégé « antsy » et puis on a réanalysé « an anse ».
First, "antsy" was abbreviated, then "an anse" was reanalyzed.
