if you aint japanese, that doesn't mean you can't write jap words!

Hmm, So what happens when I watch Japanese drama all the characters always try to add the "okay", "hello", "cute", "lovely", etc., and they're trying to say it in a childish, fake-cute voice (well, more like fobbish but you get the message), does that bother me that I speak English? Yes, but as long as they like it, I leave it be.
You're acting like Japanese people don't add English into their sentences or something. Please, you can go on a forum and post a thread about how annoyed you are, but how about try confronting someone in real life instead?

people are trying to learn japanese, whats so wrong with that?. not all of the people who toss in japanese words into their sentences learned the words from an anime. some actually studied/are studying it. -including me-

and as my profile says: "CALL ME "WAPANESE" IF YOU WANT. I WON'T CARE." Cuz i KNOW that i'm NOT wapanese.


you are soo right.

in my case, i am very interested in learning mandarin.

Americans don't actually speak proper English... I think you meant to say if you aren't from England, then you can't speak English...


And i don't think the thread creator is referring to people who are actually learning the language, i think she's talking about all the little kids who say things like: ZOMG KAWAIII! or i don't like that, ne? or whatever else they write, i tend to skim over it because it does annoy me,

The way i see it, if you're going to type in another language, you should type ALL in another language, not mix the two, unless it makes perfect sense.

And just for the record, i'm also annoyed by the insanely poor grammar and english usage as well, so it's not just the Japanese words that are being written.

Anyway.. i've put my two cents in twice, so i'm up to four whopping pennies now.. Time for me to leave this thread.

i agree wholeheartedly with you. I'm not japanese, but it's pretty damned annoying to me..

I'm actually TAKING a Japanese class, so that i can learn the language (because i want to read the original texts of some of the BOOKs - not manga - that i enjoy)

And it really annoys me when kids are hey sempai-kun!!! or whatever the fuck these kids say.

And normal people, call those idiots - wapanese. Or just plain, retards..

Either way, i 100% agree with you.

*side note - It's nice to find another person the same age as me on here!


i hope youre not implying that its shameful to learn Japanese from a class just to read mangas >_>

yeah, people who go "KAWAIII" in that high pitched voice like theres no tomorrow annoy me too, but is it really more valid to learn the Japanese language if youre doing it to read a Japanese textbook instead of comics OR so you can watch an anime without subtitles?

whats wrong with learning it to read mangas? whats wrong with learning it for fun? whats wrong with wanting to be free from english subtitles or english dubs?!
though that might not be what you meant.. i was getting that vibe after you said

(because i want to read the original texts of some of the BOOKs - not manga - that i enjoy)


so i apologize in advance if you got offended. it wasnt my intention. just making a point.

...Personally? I just think it's funny.

I see where you're coming from--I was an English honor student, and it still drives me mad when people don't use proper grammar. Well, maybe it's just because I'm a bit of a nerd...

When it's in excess, I agree it does get a bit overbearing. But I just roll my eyes and move on.

I try to use proper grammar, but I don't think I'm good at it.
