hito pronounced HE + TOE
also Jin pronounced Gin. Chinese origin.

means person.

This word has different pronunciations. It's sometimes Hito and it's sometimes Jin.

Like 日本人 (nihonjin) Japanese person
or アメリカ人 (Amerikajin) America person

But it's sometimes hito. So, it all depends on how it's used in a sentence

Word of the Day would soon be taking recesses to make room to test your knowledge.
As you all know, enough words can make a sentence.
I will soon be writing sentences/phrases down in Japanese
and write the answer as a spoiler to test your knowledge.
I just thought that it would be a lot of fun.
I mean it's fun to read a Japanese sentence and to be able to understand it.
It's like,"Wow! I totally understood that."
But don't get discouraged. It's only meant for FUN. It's not meant for a quiz.
It would give you a chance to challenge yourself.

The way it would work is. After writing more words and notes.
I would replace the Word of the Day with a sentence or phrase in Japanese with the words previously mentioned.
There would be NO new words. It would only be words you have already seen before.

The correct answer would be a spoiler. So, those of you who are not interested. It would be nothing new, so you don't have to worry about missing anything.

Some of you cannot see kanji in your computer. For some of you, kanji shows up as a bunch of tiny boxes.
This means that you need to download Japanese to your computer. However, I would write the romaji as a spoiler.

For example it would be like



romaji


English


It would be something that I would do like once a week. Maybe even less than that. So for those of you who wouldn't like something like that. You wouldn't see it that often.

I want to translate something. Not a good one, XD but

Koreha Zombie Desu Ka?

Literally means This is a Zombie???

Also ka? か? Is a question word. When a sentence ends with ka か
it means it's a question. Every time.

So Japanese people do NOT need a question mark.
They have adopted the question mark.
But the question mark is unnecessary.

So if a sentence were to say "desuka." or ですか。
It doesn't matter that it ends with a period the ka makes it a question.
ka always means it's a question whether you use a period or question mark.

In Japan this is wa わ
However most people use this which is ha は
But ha and wa sounds alike in Japanese.

Like it's really konnichiha and it's really koreha.
but a lot of times the ha は takes on the wa わ sound.

Hey, for fun. I will tell you how to write Shiroyama in kanji.
Shiroyama is the guy on Beelzebub under Kanzaki.
He has pigtails and has a tan.

城山

Can anybody tell me what "yama" means in Japanese?
Here's a hint

What thing in nature looks like this? 山

I will write out the correct answer tomorrow :)

P.S. No cheating. Give it your best. If you don't know, I will write the correct answer tomorrow
