Hi, loving everyone!^^ I'm 19years old, a Japanese Otaku.
I'm a high school graduate who is preparing for another chance to enter a college.(This is called "Rounin" in Japan, a masterless Samurai is also called "Rounin".)
I made every effort to enter college, but college refused me, because I couldn't read/write English well.

So, I want you to speak to me easily, and point out my wrong.
You can ask me everything! I'm not a grim person.^^ I love you all.(^ε^)
come on! come on everybody!

Do you think this sentences childish?

...oh,excursus.
I like WWE,progressive rock. thanks for reading

> So what is the small character's use? I know you can use them to write stuff like myu and ryo, but the small tsu character doesn't seem to do anything then...

Small tsu is a consonant lengthener — well, not really; look up "geminization".

There's a pronounciation difference between こち (kochi) and こっち (kocchi).

The other small kana are used for vowel sounds that don't have their own full kana, like りょ.

My Japanese has gotten better lately. I can read the Japanese in >>1's posts, and I'm going through Yotsuba&! and Aria now. But I still don't know any more kanji...
This would be easier if I could take a real class. "Remembering the Kanji" is a good book, though.

Hello there! I saw fireworks last night. Somehow, many Chinese people were there. たまやー。かぎやー。

It's very hot these days in Sendai. The temperature reaches thirty degrees Celsius.

>>425
It's around that temperature, maybe our climate is a little alike? Hmm... It's so hot, especially here upstairs. I think it will start to thunder soon, the humidity is high.

And what does tamaya~ or something like that mean? I've been too busy to study Japanese more. :( I'm very happy I can ask you questions though! =)

Oh! Why did you know that? It was thundering yesterday.

These are pictures of the school zone.

ttp://www2.library.tohoku.ac.jp/tua-photo/image/C010919-l.jpg
The second from left is me.

Tamaya~ and Kagiya~ are names of a store of fireworks. In the Edo period, the two stores competed in skills of wireworks. While fireworks are shooting off, spectators yell the name of his/her favorite store. This custom continues today.(The most of the Japanese don't know that. I also didn't know the course only when I searched the word "たまや" two days ago)

> I'm very happy I can ask you questions though!

It's also my pleasure!!

428 Name: config.sys : 2007-08-07 20:51 ID:Heaven

>Oh! Why did you know that? It was thundering yesterday.

Like I said, the humidity was high. That means there was a lot of water in the air, and thunder will come after that most of the time.

>The second from left is me.

So hot! @_@

>Tamaya~

Cool fireworks tradition! Do people still yell Kagiya~ or did Tamaya win in the end?

I hope I can help you by pointing out some mistakes in your post:

>I also didn't know the course

You probably mean 'source'.

>...continues today.(The most...

And between the . and ( should be a space. It's a detail but it looks nice. :)

>The most of the Japanese

That should just be 'Most of the Japanese'.

But besides these things you've explained it very clearly. I'm sure nobody will recognize you as Japanese when you anonymously post somewhere else on 4ch.
Remember that most native English speaking people on the internet make way more mistakes than you do.

My English isn't perfect either, feel free to correct me too! ;)

You seem like a weatherman.

>Do people still yell Kagiya~

Yes, Kagiya~ is yelled next to Tamaya~. It is considered as one set.

>did Tamaya win in the end?

ttp://allabout.co.jp/family/seasonalevent/closeup/CU20060725C/
Tamaya went out of business in one generation, because it(Is this ok? What pronoun should I use for a name of companies?) caused a fire. The Edo Shogunate eliminated the boss!
Kagiya is still alive. The site below is its official one.

"they" might be more appropriate, referring to the people that operate and staff the company and were responsible for the fire.

2ch用語の辞典です↓
ttp://www.media-k.co.jp/jiten/wiki.cgi?IndexPage
I was born in Kansai-area, so I can speak kansai-ben(almost the same to osaka-ben).

Kwsk means "more detail, please."
詳しく(くわしく) -> kuwashiku -> k w s k
I think this word is used when someone posts an attractive picture. (like this: ttp://uraden.hp.infoseek.co.jp/kusomiso.html)

"(ry" is omission.
(略) -> (ryaku) -> (ry
"略" means omission, so this omission is omitted. This is truly omitted. HAHAHA.
"(ry" is used in the situation that there is needless to (ry.

ぐだぐだ -> gudaguda -> g d g d
I think ぐだぐだ is not an official word of Japanese. This word stands for a halfway work. (for example, an inconsistent thing, a party which had not warmed up, a TV show which isn't crisply hosted.)
Being ambiguous, this word is able to be used in various ways(only in 2ch). Sorry, my explanation is gdgd.

>I know I keep asking 2ch slang, sorry.

Don't worry, man! To explain these words in English seems very effective for my study.

Most of those are pretty bad, I think. I guess they don't have any real-life experience?
Not that I'm one to talk...

(I like the circles オテント丸 (otentomaru), STEED ENTERPRISE, hinketsu elevator/Ueda Hajime, mutekei fire/安倍吉俊 (Yoshitoshi ABe) and some others I'd have to look up... none of them are adult-only)

About your English, how's your pronounciation? I know Japanese people who were born here who can pronounce both languages properly, but unfortunately I've never met anyone Japan-born who's good at English.

I have a song in English by Ai Maeda; she's really good at English, but leaves out the 'r' and 'l' in most words. They're important!

472 Name: Anonymous : 2007-09-05 01:09 ID:1BYrEDmv

Japanese is a very phonetically poor language. I'm guessing that's why it's hard to learn foreign pronunciation.
Japanese have to resort to breaking down strange words into easy-to-read kana.

Hello, meimaggie! Nice to meet you!

>dare dedeshou = 誰でしょう = だれでしょう

This sentence does not include the subject(the Japanese subject. I'm not sure that this grammatical work can be apply to the English sentence). So this sentence can be read several ways. When I read this one sentence, I will interpret it as '私は誰でしょう(= Who am I)'.
After all, I cannot conclude accurately.

誰(だれ) = who
でしょう = deshou
'deshou' is a little complex. MORI Hiroshi(my favorite mystery writer) says that 'deshou' is a conjugation of 'desu'.
"~でしょう" means question and presumption. In this case, 'でしょう' is used as question.

Hello, config.sys. I want to exchange emails with you. But if I don't reply for a long time, it'll be pretty rude to you. So I want to communicate with you in this thread.
From now on, I'll post here everyday. Someday, posting on this thread will become my custom!

I've never seen my sister's manga. I had not been able to talk with her for a long time. Recently, I come to talk with.
So, I'll ask her for her illustrations. I hope it will satisfy you.

こんにちは。

It's a little cold in Sendai. The highest temperature during the day is about 23 degree centigrade. I should prepare for autumn!

How about this?!

Ah, that's okay. We'll just speak here, then.

It isn't nice weather here either. I'm actually ill at the moment. :(

Programming is very cool. Not many girls are interested in it... So you're going to teach programming at an elemantary school? ;)

Heh, the anime seems interesting. I read that it starts in october. Are you going to watch it?

>So you're going to teach programming at an elemantary school?

Maybe there isn't a class of programming at an elementary school in Japan. Alas..

>Heh, the anime seems interesting.

It is called ペドアニメ(pedophilian animation). But in an anime and the reality, I think it differs a little.

>I read that it starts in october. Are you going to watch it?

Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure.

By the way, config.sys, I want to know more about you! Does your house have a windmill? Do you always wear boots made from wood? How about your college? What would you do in the future?
There are many many many questions!

Hi 1! How are you doing?

>Maybe there isn't a class of programming at an elementary school in Japan. Alas..

Yeah, that was my point. But it's interesting either way, maybe when you get into it you'll even change your mind.

>Does your house have a windmill?

Not at all. Holland is a very crowded place, you know. It's very small, but there are quite a lot of people living here. The result is that there isn't much space for anyone. I live in a village near a city, in a medium sized house next to a line of more of those houses. There's no way there would fit a windmill in the small garden. :)

>Do you always wear boots made from wood?

Every country has a lot of stories about cultural things of the past. Usually, when you actually visit the country it's different than you've heard it to be, and more 'normal' than you had expected. I think Japan is a little bit of an exception, it seems to me that it likes to keep its cultural traditions. In Holland though, people mostly wear the same things as in America I guess, and there aren't any special times when you wear traditional clothing. I don't think I've ever worn those boots made of wood ('klompen') actually (but they don't seem very comfortable ;). But I do have to say there are more old-fashioned parts, especially in the north, where people still have farms and windmills - and where people wear klompen. So it's still there.

>How about your college? What would you do in the future?

Hmmm... Since I was little I've always been interested in games and the development of it. There are colleges for that here, so I might choose that. I've put quite some time in learning how to make games, and I think I'm able to make one as I can make the program, music and graphics myself - but I haven't finished a proper game in my whole life! I hope this will change soon though, I have plans for an abstract acion game, and I'm really motivated to actually produce this to show what I'm capable of. Do you know Tetris: The Grand Master series? I was thinking of a kind of style to make it in, and I'm quite inspired by it. I have seen how fast Japanese players are, so I will be sure to put a Japanese language mode in it. Maybe you can help to translate it then? (This is at some point in the future, I have no idea when this is as school should be my priority. orz)

>There are many many many questions!

Bring them on! ;)

cought -> caught
Japanese English pronunciation brought it. It's not my fault :)

497 Name: config.sys : 2007-10-08 18:43 ID:Heaven

Hmm, I've never thought of the time you'd need to write a post. So, take your time! :) Did you have a good weekend?

Hi. I check here everyday, but I cannot write everyday...
I'm sorry. It's my fault.

Again, it doesn't matter.

I do have a question for you... You have the わ and は character, but sometimes the は is used instead of the わ. An example is: こんいちは, konnichi ha. Does the は change its pronunciation when it's used as a particle?

500 Name: Anonymous : 2007-10-12 05:40 ID:tVVzMHCi

Yes, it's pronounced as わ as a particle. Similarly へ is pronounced 'e' if you feel like it (most people do) and を is pronounced 'o' (most people don't).
