About Writing Japanese..

Postby Talos » Tue 04.19.2005 12:45 am

Hi all,

I have a stupid question to ask, I guess all Jap ppl cant use the Kanji to express themselves on the web, cause of keyboard..limited possibility lol.

So my real question is, do they all learn occidental alphabet/english while young guys, or they need to do it by themselves later ?

Thks in advance for answers ;)

Sure, they can use Kanji, they type it like this: 日本語 犬夜叉, well, they probably acutally enter it in slightly differently than I did, but it looks like that. They also learn the Latin alphabet (romanji), for English and as it applies to Japanese [in school, I think], but I presume that they would not normally use it for conversing in Japanese.

The Japanese are able to express how they feel in Japanese:

Japanese people use a 106Keyboard which contains the hiragana/symbols/katakana phonic alphabet, but when it is typed into the system it either has, a dotted line under it( kind of like when you type japanese using IME ) allowing them to choose the kanji for that word/phrase, or in some applications it is auto-completed by use of context.

On a 106 keyboard they also have the eng alphabet(on some)
