May I suggest adding "sugoi" and "kawaii" to that list? :D

Does "yo" count as a word?

I meant to reply to this yesterday, but something happened and... I didn't. Sounds like a good idea. I think the poll should be changed on a regular basis. In two weeks, Infidel, come up with another winner :)

Dude, this poll is hilarious. I vote for kawaii. Also this guy in my German class, who's hilarious, always says "desu" and "kawaii" to add more comedy to his German. :p

It is a funny poll, isn't it?
Especially if you consider about 80% (rough estimate ^_^) of visitors are beginners in the Japanese language themselves.
I wonder which word NJS choose?

I went for 'watashi', which is slowly gaining ground :)

Edit: and i love the word 'kawai' :D
not that I get to use it much...
