Sentence hunt.

Postby paul_b » Wed 11.22.2006 5:20 pm

Here's a fun puzzel(tm)* for those who like that sort of thing. I'm looking for simple natural Japanese sentences that use the following kanji and don't use any other kanji above grade 1. (Or just don't use any other kanji).

Of course it is possible to just write out any other kanji word in kana but ideally it should look as natural as possible. For example 土曜日 is sometimes written as 土よう日 so that is not that unnatural but 土地 is rarely (never?) written as 土ち so that is unnatural.

I do intend to put any good suggestions to practical use, btw.

林に竹がたくさんあります There is a lot of bamboo in the woods.
Two muffins were baking in an oven. One turns to the other and says "sure is hot in here." The other replies "AH TALKING MUFFIN!"

二つのマフィンがオーブンで焼かれていた。片方のマフィンがもう一方のマフィンに向かって、"暑いね”と言った。すると、話しかけられたほうのマフィンは"アッ!喋るマフィンだ!”と驚いた。 :)

Looks good on the face of it.

Inspired by that I also tracked down ...

You don't have to get them all in one sentence you know. ;-)
