PostSubject: Some Japanese Cultural Phrases   Fri Sep 26, 2008 12:45 am

Some things that are said in Japanese have no literal meaning even in Japanese. These things are said just because it is tradition.

Some examples would be
  • Itekimasu(said when leaving home)
  • Itarashai(said after someone says itekimasu)
  • Tadaimaa(said when returning to home)
  • Okairi-nasai(said after someone says tadaimaa)
  • Itadakimasu(said before eating)


That's pretty much the basics.

I've watched enough anime to pick these up. I tried a japanese lesson podcast, but this is about all they taught you before they wanted you to shell out cash. ><

I've actually listened to some of their podcasts, but I have to say, I have a difficult time learning language in that method. Maybe I'll try harder.

Also a question. Does anyone know how to make a noun plural in japanese?

Um there actually isn't any, if I remember correctly. you just say the amount number + the noun.

or if you mean 'they' in jp is karera (for guys/mix) and kanojora or kanojotachi (all girls)

It's been a year since I listened to their podcasts now, sry.

mondai nai = no problem

it substitutes doitashimashite or something, like no problem substitutes you're welcome.
