ォンドンカラデスカ

Post by Gogs » Thu 11.16.2006 4:26 pm

Hi,

Could you tell me if this is right (I'm a noob :D)? I'm trying to say I come from London:

ォンドンカラデスカ

not 100% certain how to do London and I see it's missed the L. Should I also have a は in there after London? ie:

ォンドンはカラデスカ

あらがとう

ロンドンからです is what you're looking for. ロンドンからですか is asking if you're from London.

Gogs, "l" in the IME is used for typing "little" kana.

l + a = ぁ (little あ)
l + t + s + u = っ (little つ)
etc.

あらがとう


It should be あがとう. :)

yeah, just type "r" for "l". Rondon. がんばってね〜

Oh, and don't use katakana for writing it. Do you know the differences between the writing systems? Hiragana, Katakana?

Hiragana= original Japanese script
Katakana= script for borrowed words

Hiragana looks more curvy while katakana (the one you're using) is more straight.

What do you mean by "original Japanese script"? My impression was always that katakana came before hiragana although to some extent this depends on how you define "hiragana", and I don't think the dates are completely certain. But this is probably beyond the scope of this thread.

I guess you're right.

I should've said

Hiragana: Script for non-loan words
Katakana: Script for loan words.
