RE: Trial (line 1-4)

Postby Justin » Sat 03.25.2006 10:24 pm

Sorry if my tranlation left a bit to be desired there, but as coco just said, the first sentence is in fact being said by a women, where as the second one (the one we're working on), is said by our narrator, talking about how guys don't really speak to each other in the bathroom, which I guess my translation was a bit unclear about. Maybe something along the lines of this would be a bit better...

From what I know though, guys don't talk to each other in the restroom.

Even at that, you could probably still take that as being said by a women if you saw that sentence just by itself. In context though, I'm thinking it would be assumed that it's our narrator (who is a guy) talking about what he thinks to be common place when it comes to guys talking with other guys they don't know in in the restroom.

line1−4 に関する質問は、このスレッドで引き続き行いましょう。 :)
For all members,
if you have any question, you can ask about line 1-4 in this thread.
Before asking, please read "Trial Wrapup Idea" by Txkun, I believe it will be great help.

Thanks Txkun! :)

Agreed. I've been assuming -- so far -- that the narrator is a man, and the other person in the restroom is a guy, too. That may change as the story unfolds, but such is my reading now.

はじめまして。 ロン です。

Is it okay to jump in on this thread? Wasn't sure if it's open to everyone.

I've passed JLPT4 and I'm probably a little beyond that level, so I think I'd qualify for group C. That's the beginner's level, right?
