okay, for those who already know this, it will seem like; that's so obvious, so why mention it? but please be considerate for those who are not aware of it so others can join in the fun too. :)

but for those who are not aware of this, all you do is replace your Ls and Rs with Ws.

like this;

instead of saying, 'i love you', say 'i wuv you'.

instead of saying, 'i like you', say 'i wike you'.

instead of saying 'really and truly', you say 'wiwwy and twuwy', pronounced 'wiwwee and twuwee'.

even the word 'kawaii' sounds kawaii in english, because it has a W in it.

if it's too laborious to do every L and R like that, you really only have to do a few words like that in each sentence to get the effect. like this; 'hi, i really like you. wiwwy and twuwy'.

to say, 'it works' you would say either 'it woks', or 'it wouks'.

to talk kawaii english with the 'th' sound, you would replace the 'TH' sound with a 'D'.

so, if you want to try it, in place of "that's kinda creepy", you would say, "dat's kinda cweepy".

you would not replace the 'K' with a 'W' sound. you would only replace the 'L' and 'R' sounds with 'W' sounds.

to native english-speakers, it's 'cute-sounding'.

if anyone wants me to show how to do this to anything they want to say, you could just click on 'quote' for this post to let me know (or PM me), and then give whatever it is you would normally say in proper english,and i will be happy to give it a try and "kawaii it up" into a cute-sounding version.

like i said, you don't have to do every word to get the effect. just one or two words can break up a perfectly serious discussion into a comic act.

since you don't have to do every "L' or 'R' (which would in some words be very awkward to pronounce), i thought i would give a few more examples.

since we have so many students here, i will try to add a few school-related remarks.

the first sentence will be 'proper english', and the one just below that, 'kawaii english'.

i was late for school this morning.
i was wate for school this morning.

i was horribly late.
i was howwibwy late. [or] i was howwibwy wate.

why don't you guys go ahead to the cafeteria, and i'll catch up to you in a minute.
why don't you guys go ahead to the cafetewia, and i'll catch up to you in a minute.

i got an 'A' in english.
i got an 'A' in engwish.

did we get the flags all finished for the school parade?
did we get the fwags all finished for the school pawade?

i like crunchyroll.
i wike cwunchyroll. [or] i wike cwunchywoll.

my alarm clock failed to wake me this morning.
my awarm cwock failed to wake me this morning.

crunchyrollnut is an idiot and should be made to write properly.
cwunchywollnut is an idiot and should be made to wite pwoperly. [or] ...made to wite pwopowy.

another one that sounds kawaii with just this one phrase, is instead of saying 'thank you', say 'sank you'.
if you're being served coffee, then you can make it a play on words, and say 'sanka', or 'sanka very much', or 'sanka vewy much'.
