Triss: The Katakana syllabary system was originally derived from Chinese characters; it was developed in the Heian Period. Katakana are recognized by their straight strokes and angular corners. Katakana are most often used for the transcription of foreign words/phrases that are not part of the Japanese language. (A lot of foreign place names are written in katakana) You probably see a lot of Katakana in manga as well, because they are often used for onomatopoiea.
The other kana system (syllable system) is Hiragana; the system was developed from Chinese characters or man' yogana. When it is was first developed it was popular amonst women. Hiragana looks less boxy than Katakana. Hiragana is often used for words for which there are no Kanji. These words usually include particles and suffixes. If you read manga in Japanese you will often find Hiragana above the Kanji. This reading aid system is called Furigana.
Kanji are Chinese characters that are used in the Japanese writing system along with Hiragana and Katakana.Because of how they have been adopted into Japanese, a Kanji character may be used to write one or more different words. Therefore Kanji are said to have two different readings: The On' yomi reading (Japanese approximation of the Chinese pronunciation) and the Kun' yomi (The native Japanese reading.)

Hello!

How are you all?

So, this is a Japanese forum?

cool!


でも。。。
「これ輪日本語フォーラムだ」って正しいですか。

oh and I also think that a good idea for learning kanji is to learn all the radicals happy.gif They are very useful!!

oh and can somebody tell me the days of the month? I remember that Monday is the same kanji for day (日) and Friday is the same for money (金)--and I know fire is in there somewhere ^^;; (oh and of course 曜日[youbi] at the end)
Forgive my idiocy.... ^^;;;

Wa -A particle marking the topic of a sentence or conversation. Once the topic is stated, it is not necessary to repeat it. And remember, Japanese sentences go 'subject-object-verb'!
Kore -Pronoun. as in 'This'. Refers to something that is closer to the speaker than the audience.
Sore -Pronoun. as in 'That'. Opposite of above.
Are -Pronoun. as in 'That over there'. Far from both audience and speaker(i.e. the moon)
Nan -Pronoun. as in 'What'. Usually lengthened to 'nani'.
Ka -Particle. A verbal question mark. Add it to the end of a sentence to make it a question.

Here's a few sentences using the above info:
Are wa Boku no Tosutaa desu ka -"Is that my toaster over there?"
Iie, Neko desu. -"No, it's a cat."
Kore was nan desu ka -"What is this?"

Okay, time to put what you've learned to use (and get me manga at the same time >:))
I'll post a chapter of manga (Yotsuba&! 47) and you guys can help me out by translating it. I'll give notes at the bottom.










page 16 page 17 page 18

page 19 page 20 page 21

page 22 page 23 page 24

page 25 page 26 page 27

page 28

(the Forum limits me to only 15 images...)

Notes;
Character names (in order of appearance):
Guy with long black hair: "Daddy/Dad", Mr. Koiwai
Little Girl: Yotsuba Koiwai
White haired guy: Yanda
Tall guy: "Jumbo", Takashi Takeda

Premiss: I believe they are off to visit a farm :3

Feel free to just translate one or two pages or the whole thing. Who knows, this could be your start in the scanlating business.
