    Besides I have a young child thats learning to speak. Period. Hes can only say certain words, which means he speaks randomly. Im sure our parentS would remind us all that at one point we spoke our own first langueges VERY SPORADICALLY.
    There is a time and place to babble in foreign languages that you can't speak very well yet. Practicing by conversing is one thing, but just letting loose strings of random words? >__>

    Need I remind you all that their are people out there that spout nothing but strings of random words in their own language. I call them morons perhaps you've seen one or two of them yourselves.

    Thinking is the leading cause of death among the stupid.

    (Lol) Seen them? I live with a couple of them
    I must admit, if I wasn't well tempered it would really annoy me. Then again it does reveal their level of intelligence.

    LOL! I don't think I've ever said "kawaii" in RL before. But as many said...just give it time for teenage girls to realize it isn't even english language. Hmm..and I guess it could get annoying in japan if Americans were to randomly say japanese words. But who cares? It's our life?

    i remember back in Junior high when my friend went to china
    her cousing told her to say some word.. forgot what it was
    but he said it was the word for "thank you"
    so when she got there she would say it to people she bought stuff from.
    luckily a helpful taxi driver informed that she was telling all the nice folks.
    bullsh*t.
    which is why id rather look like a dumb tourist in a different country rather than a rude one

    MICHIERU RULES ALL

    he?" or "uun
    people in America will understand what you just said. Except for the east coast. I heard they speak some alien language where they actually say the word "yes." "what" and "no"

    that's the thing, it's not a first language. It's not even to learn a second language, it's about people using pieces of a language to show a vauge knowledge of a culture they wish they were apart that they learned about from a cartoon.
    that's pretty much my point.

    Umm... sorry, but I think that sounds kind of harsh. I mean, I live on the east coast, and for "yes" I'm more inclined to say "nn" or some sort of noise like that than the actual word. I can't tell whether you are insulting the east coast (maybe implying that they are stuck up and pretend to not understand when people don't use proper words), or insult the rest of the country for not using proper words. Or maybe you didn't mean to come off as insulting. Whatever the case, I don't really agree with you. It depends on the person, not the region, whether or not they'll understand you. And, my friends understand me fine when I say "hai" or "dui" or whatever word the situation calls for, depending on the nationality of the friend I'm talking to. Even the ones not of the nationality understand. That is because they are open to incorporating new words into their vocubulary, and as long as used correctly it generally doesn't get on anyone's nerves.

    I wasn't making fun of anyone. Anyway I have never heard of this "dui" before. Maybe I have and just don't recognize it in writing.
