Nope it's an African language (Shona that is), but I found out that a lot the words in my langauge are also found in the Japanese language. I wondered why my Japanese friend, Miwa could prounounce my African name b'cuz I didn't realise that some of the words in Japanese could be found in my language as well!

i guess pronounciation are similar. some english words sound like my language but have different meanings too. sometimes i feel like hallucinating cuz i'm hearing some of the english words being said as words in my language

I use "Guuzen" a lot! It means Coincidental.... Hehe...
And I use Kawaii. Some people look at me funny when I say that and I'm like "What, doesn't EVERYONE know what that means?" I guess not...!!

dattebayo doesn't mean anything i think... it's just like how some characters say desu~ (eg suisei seki of rozen maiden) or nano desu~ (eg hanyuu of higurashi no naku koro ni kai) after every sentence. it doesn't mean anything.. it's just the way they speak

and you DID spell everything correctly except for "irrashaimassen" (it's actually irasshaimase)

"Ano" [Informal word which can mean "that thing over there", but the slang meaning is more commonly "Uhhh..." or "Well..." and is used a lot in colloquial speech at the start of a sentence or between sentences just like we use "Uhhh.." to slow down the conversation so we can think.]
"ARE!" [like omg, wtf? etc]
"che" [somewhat like 's**t']

...yeah, I insult people a lot T_T

i gotta remember those so i can things like dat without getting in trouble but my fav is 1 of 2 or maybe 3 lol

2 inu- dog
