＊Use this grammar for bits of news that you heard or read.
FORMATION: Ｖ(plain form) + とか いＡ + とか なＡ・Ｎ + とか
For the case of a noun with toka, you actually need だ、it`s shown in the 3rd example below
N＋だ〜とか 金持ちだとか （I heard he was rich)
I just know とか with the meaning of 'like'. Or is it the same thing?
I checked and confirmed with a native speaker that when using this grammar after なA・N that the formation is indeed なA・N＋だとか. Additionally, this is found mainly in novels, whereas a conversational equivalent would be と聞いた・と聞きました.
The usage given in the formation section for なＡ・Ｎ does not match that of the example of ex #6262, which suggests that instead of: なＡ・Ｎ + とか it should instead be なＡ・Ｎ + だ＋とか
