Japanese Online Idioms (410)

1 名前: Anonymous 2004-11-26 05:15 ID:Heaven [Del]

I would like to know what some of the Japanese phrases mean that are mostly used online, on boards like 2ch, e.g.

There is DQN and (ry, for instance.

What do those mean? Are there other ones I need to know to understand an average online conversation?

Please enlighten me!

This thread refers to another thread, by the way:

What means ズッポリ/zuppori?

Complete? Full? End?

焦ったのがいけなかったのか、シナリオの分岐点が見つからずズッポリはまった。そりゃもうズッポリ6時間 (泣)。

And from which word/verb does "Zuppori" come from?

202 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-09-11 13:39 ID:Heaven

'ri' at the end of an onomatopoeia turns it into an adverb (sort of like -ly in English)

ずぽずぽ + り = ずっぽり (deeply)
ひそひそ + り = ひっそり (quietly)
こそこそ + り = こっそり (secretly)

What means ゴリゴリ/gorigori?

Force? Energy? Power? Vigor?

And from where does ゴリ/gori come from?


205 名前: 名無しさん@英語勉強中 2005-09-12 01:24 ID:Heaven

"ゴリゴリ(gori gori) "     → Synonym "コリコリ(kori kori)   gori gori>kori kori

I thought "gorigori" and "korokori" are only onomatopoeic word which came from
the appearance with hard touch (stiffness).
   Word that repeats the same sound is called 繰り返し語(畳語) .in Japan.
   *繰り返し語(畳語) =kurikaeshi go (jou go) → repeatedly a word

>And from where does ゴリ/gori come from?

This question is very difficult in reality.
Perhaps, it is likely to have to go back even to the origin of "Repeatedly a word " in Japanese.
As I am not a linguist (only an engineer), I searched the web site about this and found this.
I hope that you have a good translation soft wear.
The site explained comparatively politely with Japanese repeatedly word dictionaly.

>>205  <丶`∀´>Nida san     about 「ホルホル(horu horu)」
We often see the scene in 2ch.AA(s-JIS) that Nida-san is satisfactory loughing "ホルホル".
The word "Horu horu" is neither Chinese, Korean nor English.
"Horu horu" is neither Korean nor English.
It originates in the name of the game software that was at the dawn of the personal computer in Japan.
The game software of the name "ディグダグ(Dig dag)" was put on the market from namco in 1982 for Fujitsu
PC FM7 & 8 (Dig dug is still sold in the market.)
Immediately, the game software "Horu horu" was put on the market from a certain soft house (1982).
Japanese translation of "Dig dug" means 「掘る(horu)掘る(horu)」.
As you can understand from the name ,this was the plagiarized game software.
The same act which was done by a certain neighboring country people was called "Horu Horu"by some
net persons in Japanese..  It has changed into Mr. Nidar's laughter while time passes why.
Quotation :
 Pubulisher Minmei-shobou "Peninsula person Five thousand years of Paku-ri Culture"
As I am not good at English, I describes above in Japanese.
1982年に富士通のFM7、8用にNamcoから「dig dug(ディグダグ)」と言う名前のゲームソフトが発売
「ディグダグ(Dig dug)」は日本語に直すと「掘る(ほる)、掘る(ほる)」です。

Very useful thread. What is 'merupo'? 2ch people often use it as their ID. Is it Japanese for 'anonymous'?

Also, is there a famous anime/Japanese show where people scream, "UNIVEEEEERSE!" Because there are many AA characters screaming "universe" on the 2ch Phantasy Star Universe thread.

民明書房(Minmei shobou)、    民明書房刊(published by Minmei shobou)
*Minmei shobou
The most notorious publisher to affect good-natured boys in Japan negatively for 30years.
A lot of boys went to the bookstore in the town to order the book on this publisher, and
coming home being gotten angry from the bookstore.
PTA specified the book on this publisher for harmful books is a thing no need to say.
However, the manga男塾(=otoko juku)in whichi many a thing is quoted from this publisher
is very popular among Taiwan.
Even Mr. Li Teng-hei(李登輝)who is former Generalissimo in Taiwan did the costume play of
this manga's hero Heihachi Etajima(江田島 平八)

What exactly is JISAKU JIEN?

213 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 2005-10-04 04:10 ID:Heaven

JISAKU JIEN - used to refer to the action of pretending to be multiple persons online or the person(s) who do so. Usually easily uncovered by looking at the cryptcode ID of the posts.

The definition written in >>213 seems right.
Another example of Jisaku Jien is that you pretend to be involved in a crime though you aren't and get injured by yourself in order to draw sympathy from others.

JI: (your)self
SAKU: make

Yesterday I went to Yoshinoya, the most famous beef bowl chain in Japan.
There were so many people that I couldn't sit in the counter.
Then, I happened to see the billboard that said,"Discount \150"
Were the Yoshinoya staff fool or crazy?
Hey, you, the not so frequent comers in Yoshinoya, don't come to Yoshinoya attracted by the "discount \150"!
It seemed that the four people were a family. The family in Yoshinoya! Were they serious?
The father said I would order Tokumori, the biggest size in the shop. I was embarrassed to see you!
Make room for me, and I will give you \150.

Yoshinoya should be barbarous. It should have the situation in which quarrels with the person across the U-designed table,
killing with knives.
I like the situations. Women and children, don't come there!

I could sit at last! Hearing what the person next to me, he or she said, "Oomori-tuyu-daku please", which meant a large serving and a large amount of sauce, please.
This went out of fashion now. Be careful, a fool!
You ordered Oomori-tuyu-daku proudly, did you?
I want to continue to discuss that you really want to eat Oomori-tuyu-daku, well, for one hour!
Do you want ONLY to say Tuyu-daku ?
From the Yoshinoya expert's point, the more fashionable order between Yoshinoya experts is Negi-daku, a large amount of leeks.
Oomori-negi-daku, many Negis and a little beef, is most fashionable.

The most powerful order is Oomori-Gyoku-daku, a large amount of eggs
I don't want to persuade this to amateurs because you would be watched from the next visit to Yoshinoya.
In short, because you would be in a double-edged situation.
You had better eat a set lunch of Gyu-zyake, a set lunch of beef and a part of salmon.

Google seems to be not to correspond to the reduction unit characters.
1リットル=1g =1l = One Litter = 1000cm^3
If you are using IME, it is possible to put it out , only tying "リットル" ⇒"g"

Other reduced unit characters are possible also in same manner.

b=m(メートル) 、c=g(グラム)、`c=kg(キログラム)、d=t(トン)

You can make the idioms by combining these reduced characters
for exmp.
