English and Spanish...that's it for me...English because I was born in NJ and Spanish because it's pretty much becoming a necessity for work here in Central Florida.

I've picked up a few words,
from manga, J-pop, and the such.
But not alot.
My cousin has told me some too.

I can't read it, though.

Unless it's romanji. >>

I know the language, due to me living in Japan, but I mainly speak with an Osakan dialect, so it's nothing like what you hear in anime (unless you've seen Azumanga Daioh, that is.)

I know how to speak a bit of japanese....just basic stuff, like what my name is, hello, goodbye, etc......I also know alot of random stuff about swords and cameras. I blame my friends.
Reading? No. I tried to learn once, with a computer program. I believe it taught hiragana, or maybe katakana.....I know it wasn't kanji. But after about three words, it started making no sense. So I just....stopped.

"Sukoshi Nihongo o hanashimasu." <-- I speak a little Japanese.

Not horrible for a seventeen year hiatus, but I can't understand it anymore except some really simple stuff like, "Hyaku!" (Hurry up!) and, of course, "Domo Arigato Gozaimashta", which is the really long, nicest way to say thank you.

The writing is really, really, really hard. XD There are THREE different alphabets. I can't do any of them.

The easiest word/letter to spot is "no" because it looks kind of like a the no-smoking circle, but not closed up all the way, or like a small e laying on its side.

^^; Heh.

Only a very few words I picked up from my "How to draw Manga book" and from some Beyblade Site. I can recognise some of the Katakana characters.
(I think Windows for the MS Mincho style of writing. It has so many Japanese characters. Katakana-Hiranga and a whole lot that don't make sence (to me _ _"))
But for the rest, no Japanese for me. =/

I have a question. What is the word for brother in Japanese? Onii-chan? or Nee-san? I hear these both very often expressed as brother. But I'm not sure which one is correct.

@young alchemist - Welcome to the board!!
Short answer is... BOTH of these words are correct.

The part that means "elder brother" is "Nii" part, and "O" is sometimes added in Japanese at the beginning of the word to show respect, or to be polite, and so on.

For the difference between "san" and "chan" at the end of these words, you can read
"san," "chan" thread. (Yes, there is a such thread!! laugh.gif )
Information on MJHermi's post on page 1, post #7 there is fairly accurate in my opinion. smile.gif

BTW, word for "younger" brother in Japanese is "otouto" (or "otohto" .)

But, since this thread's intention is for taking polls to see if any of us can speak/read Japanese, and not for discussing Japanese "linguistics," if you have further linguistic questions, please post on Teach Japanese thread, and we'll try answering your questions there. biggrin.gif
