hey! I can use alta vista too.. and as for degenerating, well, perhaps you should go back to the very beginning and learn to speak.. properly.. without doing that, you are beyond help and only crying for an asswhooping..

Yeah, the problem is I got bored of basic grammar and looked for different ways to learn and probably didn't learn everything well, I'll go back and watch "Let's Learn Japanese" and read "A handbook of Japanese Grammar". Sorry to everyone I offended .

Fine. But consider this your last warning.

Or, if you prefer:

I think a だってばよ is missing somewhere.

That's being generous. It's true that among some people, particularly males, "omae" can be used as a familiar you. But this is a usage among friends. I think this is similar to how in English, I might be able to call my friend "bastard" or even "fucker" as a term of familiarity or endearment, but if I say that to a stranger I'm risking a beatdown. "omae" is similar to that.


That's a really good example. I dunno if it's strictly a guy thing or an american guy thing, but me and my friends are constantly insulting each other, but we all know it's not meant. I can't comment on girls, but I somehow don't expect they bond by insulting each other constantly.

I've now got one more bias against roumaji. Rikai-chan won't work with roumaji.

I can't believe I have been totally ignoring the most interesting thread to come down the pike in quite a while.

The OP should be the poster child for A Little Knowledge is a Dangerous Thing.

rikai chan helps. Says expression "that's not true"

It doesn't say so, but it doesn't sound like a polite expression. I'd guess it's a contracted chigau chigau since it's normal in Japanese to double up for emphasis--and I'm pretty sure I've heard chigau chigau before.

Yup, pretty common in anime.
