    Anata no neko wa oishi desu. - Your cat is delicious.
    Ryan ga fela wa skii desu. - Ryan loves anal/69! (not too sure on this one)

    Omayo Okasu - I want to rape you.
    Anatawa baka desu. - You are stupid.
    Boku wa baka desu. - I am stupid.

    I know all the numbers, but they take like 2 days to memorize.

    ROKU JUU KYUU - 69

    Of course there are many more, I just added most words to form a sentence. This is my basic learning of Japanese in 2 months.

    Bad or Good? ??/10 rate me!
    You're not really familiar with Japanese yourself, are you? Japanese phonotactics say no syllables can end with consonants (except n). There are also syllables that don't exist. Your post has plenty of "romanizations" that violate that rule:
    • Chimpo
    • Fela <-- Debatable: All F* sounds are allophones of H* sounds, and since He is pronounced as is, there is no Fe. (Fu is actually Hu, but since u is pronounced with the lips closer together, you hear something like Fu instead.) There are katakana combinations that act like digraphs to represents non-Japanese sounds, like for Tu. This may be the case for Fe.
    • Etch
    • Okasizo <-- There is only shi

    Dude, all the bold marks were pointing out mistakes in the Character structures, not fixing what they actually meant. Not to put you down but the fact that all your japanese comes from anime is not too awesome... I would really recommend learning Japanese the real way, if only to understand the language and even the culture better :). Learning the structure of Japanese characters is incredibly interesting, trust me. Chimpo very well may be Chinpo, but what he was talking about with Fella and Etch was...

    The Japanese language works entirely off of syllables.

    A (ah
    I (ee)
    U (oo)
    E (eh)
    O (oh)

    From this we get...
    Ka ki ku ke ko,
    Sa shi su se so
    na ni nu ne no
    Ta Chi Tsu Te To
    Ma Mi Mu Me Mo
    Ra Ri Ru Re Ro
    Ha Hi Fu He Ho

    I may have messed up on a character or two (its been a while), but as you can see the structure of each syllable is a K/S/N/T/M/H/R sound, followed by a vowel. There are several syllables, however, that are difficult to pronounce.

    Take "Hu" for example. If you try to sound it out, it is much easier to move your mouth to saying "Fu". This is the only instance that you would be using a "f". So Fella does not make sense if it is a Japanese word. If it is a word from another country, then it may make more sense (being spelt out in katakana...), but putting such a word on a Japanese list loses its purpose then, right? :)

    The "si" he bolded, is not part of the Japanese spelling. The correct spelling for "si" would have to be "shi", if that is what he meant.

    Re: Learn japanese?

    S* in combination with I is always pronounced shi. That's because pronouncing the I vowel brings the tongue closer to the roof of the mouth. Although it is technically si, the sound that comes out sounds like shi. It is not the same shi sound that Americans articulate. We force our air between our teeth to make it. They use their tongue, although it's become a habit for me to articulate the sounds the way an Asian does it.

    In addition, all the H* sounds used to be P* sounds. A foreigner (ancient Indian), noted that the sound wasn't as strong as their own P*, but wasn't exactly any other sound he knew.

    Here's some evidence (which I think is sensible):
    1. In most languages, the words for mother and father come contain a bilabial sound: m, b/p, f (ɸ/β), w. The bilabial sounds happen to be the easiest sounds to pronounce, and so, they are the first consonants a baby will be able to articulate. It's not surprising that most languages have the words "mama" and "papa".
    2. In the case of the Japanese language, the native word for mother is haha. Let's go back to what I was saying before: P* became H*. In other words, the Japanese word for mother was pronounced papa. That's not odd: there is no hardcoded rule in the human mind that assigns a gender to a certain string of sounds. (The word for father is chichi, which came from titi. I don't know how to make sense of this word.)

    I don't see what that has to do with using the correct romanisation.

    Re: Learn japanese?

    Well, in any case, it's still spelled as "Fu". It's pronounced as "Hu".
    The "si" he bolded, is pointing out the mistake of clam, which i have corrected as "su" in my previous post.

    I don't know about your preference of romanizing japanese, but the if you want to romanize it, do it according to the standards and not phonetically. Spelling ecchi as etchy is a REALLY SERIOUS error even though it sounds "almost" the same when saying it out.

    ^ yeah, "fu" is correct. I can include the other romaji which includes "fu" too, instead of starting with it.

    Actually, the spelling LCS and I were talking about are the Japanese standard. Spelling out ecchi is a phoenetic spelling that is correct to romanizing standards we are both talking about. E-c-chi (there is a symbol that emphasizes extended constants.)

    I think LCS was going for "etchi" however... I have seen Ecchi also spelt as "Etchi", but the former is obviously more common. If he knew what he was talking about, he would not try to spell etchi with a y, because chy does not make sense (unless transitioning onto another syllable.)


    And if your comment was about the person that LCS was quoting... hes just about entirely off.

    Re: Learn japanese?

    If it's spelled as Etchi, it would sound "at chi" which is different from "eh-chi" in english terms. Sure, there might be some people spelling Ecchi as Etchi, but this isn't an issue like British/US spelling, so mistakes can't be excused..

    But then again, ALL of my japanese comes from animes/lurking the internets.. So my words can't exactly be very reliable. But if you ever come across a エッチ written as エtチ with the same meaning, be sure to link me to it.

    You're not really learning the language. You're learning to regurgitate phrases. I bet you're still clueless about the grammatical structure and a vast majority of the vocabulary. (Don't worry; I am too.)
