An atempt at showing what I can do.

Post by john2 » Wed 06.04.2008 6:13 pm

execute script periodically improve subject-tittle as topic gets more specific.
firstly let's start, a list of things I can say and understand, without translation, or translating in my head.
日本国に行きたい!.
私はあなたが大好きです!.
日本国に自転車で行きません。

I think I have them right anything that's incorrect please excuse…… oh and I don't know the kanji for everything.
質問 means question right?,

some formalities I think it's safe to call them greetings, anyway these are the ones I know.
はじめまして, used used when you meat someone for the first time.
こんにちは, heloo
こんばんは, good evening.
お早う, good morning.
other formalities
いただきます。

and what does おやすみなさい mean?.
a computers man technology in my case sucks more and more.[darn key boards, darn mouses] darn these days I need surgery to use any and all keyboards,[need different size of hand] Cant someone do the slavers chore of typing for me!

こにち -> こんにちは

おやすみなさい -> means "good night"

Edit: You don't need to write 日本国. 日本 works just fine.

はじまして is used when you meet someone for the first time.
When you meat someone for the first time you'd probably use a ナイフ :P

As NathanSp-san pointed out it is こんにちは and it is used from late morning (>10:00am) thru' the afternoon. こんばんは is "good evening"

おやすみなさい (お休みなさい) does mean "good night". It comes from the polite imperative form of the verb やすむ (休む), "to go to bed".
Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

To "meat someone" has very different connotations (slang) in this country and the "meat" is usually pork.

If you are trying to say you are "big" stress eating it would be something like;
わたしは大やけぐいしています。

Wouldn't an erroneous error not be an error at all? :)

He did write in English.. although it was just an elongated form of Arggh! Which is a pretty common form of showing that someone is frustrated.

However, typing full out kanji to someone who has a hard time with vocab and kana, is about as fruitful as pitching pearls to pigs..

I don't know about that.

"ARRRRRRRRRRGRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" I can deal with. It's the "1111111, hmmm ARRRGJTRIBOgjtingreibgibjtgntubtjrusibnti9bntrbneirvnwibnirbnv9reinbrw9eibnwbioer." that really makes me want to bitchslap John.
