Sorry! nothing bout anime, manga, games or drama.
But I kinda need your help.
I've made this survey, and I need japanese people to fill it in.
One problem, I live in the Netherlands and there aren't many japanese people over here.
So I thought I might find them on Crunchyroll! I would really help me out if you fill in de survey below




Hello everyone!

I am a high school student in my last year. In this year I have to write an essay. The subject I have chosen for this essay is the English influence in the Japanese language. I want to investigate what the Japanese people think about the fact that more and more English words are used in their language. Therefore, I have made this survey. It would help me a lot if you would fill in this survey.
I thank you in advance.

Whoops, I'm not Japanese. *fills it out in spite of that*

1. male
2. < 20
3. No
4. Yes
5. Yes
6. Because it sounds retarded.
7. Japanese.
9. Because when someone speaks Japanese I expect to hear Japanese and not some crippled English words torn to shreds due to some awful pronunciation mixed into a sentence about Japanese history, for example.
10. When a certain subject involves a historical matter. Like, I don't expect people to speak about Japanese history by using English words as a terminology for some Japanese stuff, just like I don't expect it in the English language when speaking about the British history when it involves British stuff, etc. (Maybe I'll get back to it later to reword my thoughts more properly. )


No problem. Though you posted this in the wrong section, and there's someone going to probably flame you for having made a personal thread even though I consider your questionnaire as interesting. You know, the whole "personal thread" ideology is retarded anyway, because 100% of the threads are based on personal thoughts, or interests. But that's probably just me.
