Japanese abbreviatio

Postby Bossu » Fri 01.11.2008 1:03 pm

みんなさん、こんにちは。お元気ですか?In this thread, I would like you
to show me some Japanese abbreviations. Not CM, not OP,
not ED, not BGM, not ORZ. Just give me the ones I'm not familiar with
like OTL and the ones from http://www.nicovideo.jp. Can you please do it for me?

Bossu, you sure are bossy. Are you not a native speaker of English, and so unaware of how rude you come across, or do you just not care?

^ Maybe he did that by mistake. It was rude, there is no doubt about it. But from now on he may avoid this in future if he understands how rude he was. I have myself wrote rude expressions too without realizing before people came flaming me about it, after that I've been trying to control my writing. :)

Bossu, how old are you, and what is your native language?

See? It was just a mistake. :)
TJPで色々人々は漢字はロマン字より好きです。
In english same because I feel that sentence was pretty poorly expressed. :)
Many people in TJP prefer kanji instead of romaji.

What was my poor sentence?

Man, I'm trying to get to work, and the admins
are treating me like a criminal.

If only somebody's psychic.

Bossuの自国語は本当に英語ですか。

Xurma was referring to her own sentence in Japanese, which she translated into English to make sure it was clear what she meant. (My apologies if I have the gender wrong, I use female as a default).

ps. 「ローマ字より漢字が好きです」と思います。。。

Bossu, I would suggest that you try this:
Read a few other threads to see what sort of questions get helpful answers.
Find something you want explained (ie. an acronym, a phrase you found in a song or on a youtube video or in a book, whatever)
Bring it over here (include where you found it, the context)
Post what you think the answer might be, it doesn't matter if it's wrong or right.
Ask 'Can anybody help'.
Say please.
Make one thread at a time and take the time to make sure it's in the right place.

Sorry but I was referring to my own sentence which I wrote in japanese because I'm not good in japanese. :)

And the admins were just asking some questions.

Don't ask me. I'm not familiar with them either. I would appreciate if someone in TJP would tell.

Well shoot Bossu, if you aren't familiar with them, how do we know which ones to show you?

For that matter would you tell me the military words I am not familiar with?

Is this one Xurma's fake-account "dialogues" again?
