means thief in Japanese. And I have never heard his name before, and
I can't find it anywhere! Plz help...:(
For all you people in Tokyo right now...
I have a craving for ramen (or some other equally greasy food). Anyone want to meet up for ramen in Shibuya this weekend?
Date: Saturday, May 31 (late notice. sorry!)
Where: Shibuya, meet at Hachiko *wanwan*
Why: to pig out

konnichiwa, kimi wa hanashi tai desu?
(P.S If you can type or use a translator for japanese, I'll talk that way)
i was trying very hard to learn the japanese language and i thought im starting to understand when i bumped into this problem of mine...
how do you say 1528 in japanese?
or other numbers that big? or numbers higher than 10 (juu)?
my friend says it's "sen go ni hachi"...
but i think that's...
So, I want to buy an electronic dictionary. I got a bunch of brochures and my sensei is going to help me pick one out, but does anyone know any good spots in Tokyo where they sell them for decent prices? I went to Bic Camera in Kyoto and it was uber expensive, and I presume Bic Camera is a chain...
OK, so I'm in Japan atm and I want to buy a Kanji DS game. As a native Canadian and purebred 白人 (I seem to remember that's derogatory, but I'm prefacing what I'm about to say by saying I'm ignorant), I don't know Kanji (not entirely true...I can read about 200 by meaning and about 80 by sound), so...
I recieved a message to my forums email but i have no clue how to read japanese besides "の" XD, im such a noob.
But anyways, i need help figuring out what it says...I tried site translators but they get things jumbled and makes it hard to understand!
please and thanks!
I should get my own subforum for this.... XP
With the ~なさい form, is there a way to make it negative?
For example if I wanted to say something like "Don`t do that" is to say something like "Don`t do that" is that even possible with ~なさい？
Is, for example, ないなさい possible?
Yeah...I made a mistake when writing my penpal about a week ago. I knew that へ after a name means To: and より after a name means From:. However, I wasn't thinking, so I accidentally wrote 「より・こうきへ」.
Sorry - すみません
Write/Wrote - 書きます／書きました （かいて）
"Kouki Yori" - ｢より。こうき」
Okay...I've recently noticed I...maybe need a tutor for て forms...
I know these rules:

き、ぎー＞いて、いで Like かきますー＞かいて
い、ち、りー＞って Like かえりますー＞かえって
しー＞して Like はしますー＞はして
1 Letter、”E" Sound－＞て Like めますー＞ねて
And some could be wrong...because of the exceptions which are...
Need help with Japanese manners? Well tag along to this thread! Here is an
example of how to ask:
User: How do I say thank you in Japanese?
~A couple of minutes or 1 day later~
Another User: It's ect. ect. ect.
So that's how it's works ^^ Remember to check back in a couple of days,
So, I'm going to Japan in about a week and a half (12 days and counting!), and I was wondering if there was anything I should know before I go there. I've taken 4 language classes at my University, so my grammar is probably at maybe a grade 2 (Japanese native) level, and my vocabulary (which I...

I have a little japanese dictionary that I can translate small tidbits of words or small sentances at your request. ♥

Without all of the annoying intro this time!
Is there a potential form of the verb ある/あります？
Short and sweet,
Hiya everyone, long time no see. ;)
After a few months horribly busy at studies, and being on holidays for two weeks, I can finally come back, at least for a few days before I'll take on my exams, on the forum.
That being said, could I ask you some help ?
I'm currently translating a...
Hello! please, i need a Japanese tutor. I know some Japanese, through the anime i've watched, but could someone please teach me? My friend and i try to speak Japanese at school, but since our knowledge of the language is so limited, we usually stop right at the beginning!
please, i really want...
OK, so I've noticed in Japanese there are A LOT of words for "but" and "because". I was wondering what the difference, if any, was. Here are the words I've learned:
i want to learn japanese can anybody help me!!!
I'm having a bit of trouble understanding which one should be used when speaking about an action.
読（よ）むことができない。 ← I can't read.
読むのは下手だ。 ← I'm bad at reading.
So I just want to know when to use either and if there is any interchangeability here. I kinda find myself having trouble deciding...
Hey. I know there's a few of these threads around the forum, but I would really like some help.
I've been trying to learn Japanese for over a year now (I think it's been two...>_>) but I've only started to get decent within the past few months.
I'm working on going through the JLPT grammar...
I'm looking for good online japanese dictionaries so I'd like you to tell me
if you know some. Usually I work with the JDICserver, it's the
best dictionary I've found, but it's somehow limited.
I want to have many sites to check and compare definitions, please.;)
So after disappearing for a while, I return with questions concerning colloquialisms/dialect. I know, I'm a jerk.
But does anybody have any idea what なんざ is supposed to mean? A virtually entirely baseless guess on my part would be that it might be a sort of male colloquialism or slang for なんか,...
I was wondering if somebody could explain to me what role, precisely, やる fills as a suffix verb. My dictionaries haven't offered a particularly convincing explanation, but one definition in particular, as well as the context I see it used in, suggests to me, at least, that it's a less polite way of...
A few days ago, I saw something that I really want to buy (the vendor's in Japan, but I have a friend who lives in Japan and she agreed to translate messages, and order the item for me in case the vendor doesn't ship overseas).
The only problem is, my friend just left town due to an...
I'm trying to practice my ability to understand Japanese by attempting to translate some things I'm interested in for various reasons. The easiest of these is the track list from Mai-HiME OST 1. Most of them I was able to make something of; there are only a couple I'm not even able to make a guess...
i like this language sooo much,but i am not good @ it...
so...ig someone knows...canhe teach me :D
...It's the name of a song, but something that's bothered me for quite a while, because it's the only time I can ever remember seeing "を" between two nouns. And in the song lyrics, there isn't a verb associated with it anywhere in sight.
I've always seen this translated as "Turning...
So, the way my random mind works, I was basically holding a Japanese conversation with myself and somehow the topic of karaoke came up, and one side of it was someone saying that they couldn't sing.
Which stumped me.
What is the potential form of the verb 歌う？ Is it 歌えます or 歌いられます？
