my name in japanese

Postby codeninja42 » Fri 07.22.2005 12:50 am

My name is Gerrit

I come from south africa so its a rather odd name. And i have no clue how to spell it. If you could write it in romanji or katakana it would be a ppreaciated.

oh and hello, this is my first post

hi Harisenbon, I'm a bit of a newb at this but does the tsu not come before the double r?

I'm asking because my name also features a double consonant and I want to be sure :)

I think the -t is meant to be doubled, not the -r, and yes, the -tsu comes before the consonant to be stressed.
