A short "I love sushi" thread.

Post by Konstantin » Thu 03.27.2008 3:41 pm

I was just inspired by the shout box on my left about how does one can express their love for sushi. I did not want to pollute the shout box, so I'll write it here. I'd write:

 私、すし、大好き!
(わたし、すし、だいすき!)- I love sushi!


How would you express your love for sushi? Kanji, kana, romaji, spoken, written - anything goes. Please, share it!

冒涜!!!

But anyway, I'd use the good old 私は寿司が大好き instead of all those てん.

I, sushi, love

What is with all the commas? A list of words separated by commas does not make a sentence.
Do you believe commas can be used as substitutes for particles? :o

僕は寿司が大好きだよ

They can, in speech. If this is supposed to be a direct representation of something spoken, no particles are necessary.

Agreed, there are times in speech when particles are dropped and pauses/breaths, as represented by commas, used but that spoken phrase sounds very unnatural to me.

I'm sure if the poster had asked "is 私、寿司、大好き the correct way to say 'I love sushi'" you may have taken a different view ;)

僕の答え、こちらです。

すしって、特別な食べ物です。はらいっぱいになったら、幸せです。わさびも、特別なもの。いっしょに、すごいコンビになるぞ。ジンジャーも、特別なことです。すしとわさびの完璧なバランス起こすから。
