    But does いかん mean?
    If you don’t teach what words mean we learners cannot really fully comprehend what we are saying.

      hi Kenb, いかん (何如) when it stays alone, it’s meaning is quite difficult to explain. Some site translate it as based on, but with out で,
      によって… I don’t think it has that meaning. In Japanese it means : どのようであるか – How it (thing) is.
