ROMAJI - ya
SOUND - [as in YAk]
looks like something a YAk
YA YU YO
The speaker is saying えや instead of へや.
It sounds very strange.
It sounds to me more like a soft version of "YUck"
it does actually look somewhat like a yak jumping in the air.
(Fan of the pillows here) I remember this by combining the overused "ya" (YEAH) in pillows songs with the lead guitarists nickname, Pee-chan, because it looks like a P and sounds like "yah"...
I hope it works for somebody else out there...or just think Oh ya, its snooPy and forget all this. ;)
Maybe I will meet you one day, maybe Wednesday, maybe not...not
Does this remind you of Snoopy? No, wait, just imagine Snoopy in a car, head out the window and ears flying in the wind! It just popped into my head as I was practicing writing ya and now I can't get it out! :)
輝 。 Bright (ki) 。 クレア 。
what are you smoking? lol seriously thats just hilarious
I can kind of see that... although (luckily?) for me, I've always just seen it as a kind of "y"... for "ya". :)
It looks like a J on a swing shouting YAy ;)
Yess..it does look like that! I m gonna remember it like this.
Live to eat , don't eat to live :€
