Well,Im japanese and im pretty bothered by people using those words,when their not Japanese..^^

Plus,its like copying my culture and stuff like that....ok heres an example.


EXAMPLE



Kunnichiwa Minna san!How is everyone ne?
Konnichiwa!Gomen ne for the late reply!
Kunnicihiwa minna san!Arigatou 4 the invite!
and i here ppl using BAKA alot.....




I dont know this is my opinion.

Just post your answers!

P.S i think this should be in general.....but more ppl use these words in anime^^


i take japanese courses because i love the culture and plan on pursuing a career in translating/interpreting. i could say i'm annoyed because you're speaking english which is my first language. free speech, first amendment of the U.S. Constitution. You have a right to be bothered, but they have a right to say whatever they want as long as its not fighting words or could bring actual harm to a person or group of ppl.


And,i admire that.Ok!I have faith that you would start a career.And its normal for ppl to do that but my question is why do they do that.I good to do it like 8 times a day,but to do it 24/7 isnt it a bit scary>?


I mean if it's something they enjoy, i don't know. Other languages can be fun, when i first learned japanese without taking classes, i would just pick up phrases and randomly say them sometimes in everyday life. It was fun and I still do sometimes, but I want to learn how to communicate with other people in the language and learn how to form sentences, etc etc. Maybe they're like me and they'll eventually want to learn too. They're just excited is all. It's not going to hurt you.



Yeah,some ppl like saying those Japanese phrases.And its real easy to learn,but..im asking why do they do it..wait i no that answer..(sorry for the confusion)

QUESTION:why do ppl use japanese words and talk about it

By talking about i mean obsessed.....(im not saying u are,im saying OTHER ppl^^)


It's the same answer. People get excited about fun and interesting things and some will pursue and continue with the things they obsess over and with others its just a trend that eventually will die out with something new and exciting.

oK..its normal for ppl using this language and i thank them for loving this language.
My CR friends use those words and i dont mind,but sometimes i get alittle confused why the use it so much.Its norma;,but to use it in a whole long sentence can get confusing dontcha think?
I mean to use Japanese Phrases allllllllllll day long can get tiring and sometimes i want them to stop,but i cant to anything about it so,its normal but why?

I don't mind it all. I think it is great that someone would want to learn and incorporate another culture and language into their own. You should be flattered, not annoyed. I'm Irish, but I still enjoy St. Patrick's Day. I don't think this thread is necessary at all. There are bigger problems in the world than someone's use of the saying "moshi moshi."

It's a way to show off how much we've learned of the Japanese language and its usage. As a general rule I don't write Romanji very often, but there are certain times when it's simply....appropriate. I know it can be annoying to see it when it's used too often, but please have patience with those of us who really are trying. I don't think anyone out there's deliberately trying to annoy others with it....

Besides, in most animes they speak English words and use common phrases. Furthermore, Japan has been adapting western ideas and cultures for years and its reflected highly in the Japanese Pop culture.

I agree with darkridr, no one is deliberately trying to annoy or insult, the american otaku is simply becoming it's own counterculture, and in many cases they use these japanese phrases because they want to identify to the japanese culture they see and wish to emulate. No kidding, it annoys me as well, as does anything in excess of that manner.
The real point is, if someone wishes to use romanji spellings in english phrases for whatever reason, why not have japanese lessons if you wish to speak the language? Much more credible and less easy to make fun of if you type in japanese (kanji, hiragana) as well.

ok, im a modern languages and cultures major with a focus in japanese so i have an excuse to use phrases at the moment because i have not perfected them, but i also use spanish, german, italian, french, russian, and occasionally latin phrases in my conversation. then again ive been told i have the gift of tongues so w/e and if anyone else wants to try to emulate a language i dont care cuz it's their problem. Although it does piss me off for some reason when they pronounce the word way off.
