Kanji Handwriting Thread

Post by rincewind » Fri 08.11.2006 7:23 pm

I was reading a thread that someone created in order to have their Japanese handwriting evaluated. A suggestion was made to create a generic thread for this purpose, so everyone could post their handwriting. It seems that this was never done, so i thought i would create it.
Of course, creating this thread suggests that i should be posting my own handwriting along with it, but i'll save that for later...:p

hey I read that thread a while ago and I thought someone would do something by now. Once I can get my writing on here I'll put it up.
Finally!

ok, i'll go first then!
It may be illegible though...

It is supposed to say:
konbanwa,
watashi wa burianka desu.
watashi ga ongaku kitte inagara,
nihongo o benkyou shitte imasu.
matsu takako no sakura no ame ga suki.

(English)
Good evening,
I'm brianka. I am studying japanese
while listening to music. I like matsu takako's
sakura no ame (Cherry Blossom's rain).

I can read it! Given the fact that you apparently wrote using a mouse, it's surprisingly legible. ;)

Non-handwriting-related issues:

I suggest putting Japanese quotation marks around the song title.

I also recommend not using watashi ga in the second sentence, since that's like saying "I am studying Japanese and listening to music...". You can just drop the watashi there, I think, since we already know you're talking about yourself.

This is a test I took back in Japanese I. I already had it scanned in my computer, so I figured I'd just use that.

Rather than きっていながら, it should be ききながら

Your Japanese is better than the teacher's English. :)

Pretty good! Definately legilble. I'd work on your か and が a bit though - the horitzonal part of the stroke should be extending all the way through and out the left hand side

I didn't expect such feedback within a single night! This is awesome! :D
You guys are great at the ol' handwriting.
I have some of the paper that the Japanese use to practise Kanji, so i'm going to use it to write all the Kanji that i know. I would have posted it already, but i recently changed my printer and this doesn't have scanning abilities.
It'll come soon, i promise! :p

I want to post mine, but I don't have scanner and when I took photos with my digicam it don't work so well. Well, anyway, I'll try to solve my problems and post it. >< I've been thinking that I would really want to have my calligraphy examined by "pros". ;P

Well Zeo was the brains behind that whole episode. In fact he made the whole thing- impressive huh?

Man I sure hope this works. (I know since I said that it isn't going to work;))

Ok, you have to click on it- and it works! *dances*
