    I guess you make a good point there, arianna. If how a person uses the phrase is spoken correctly, then who cares? But it can get annoying if they speak the different language, and do not know what the hell they are saying. But if it's just someone who is learning a certain language, I say "why not?". For example, me. I am learning how to speak japanese. So every now and then I say words in japanese in my house. It gets on my mom's and sister's nerves, but I really don't care. I'm learning how to speak a certain language, and I find that pretty cool.

    So I don't think it's a problem if the person is speaking it correctly. And I just totally contradicted what I have been saying in this thread all along.

    Oh well.

    Blue Rebel is talking exactly what I made this thread about. Annoying Japanese wannabes or people who blurt random Japanese words. That's not borrowing a language it's butchering it and it's so annoying.

    Well then, that is defiantly annoying. All they do though is prove how stupid they are so why should you care?

    Because I could be sitting in the same coffee shop as the girl who's randomly blurting out words, and I can't be expected to pick up my tray and eat while squatting outside the shop, can I?

    I'm NOT talking about a girl saying "that is so kawaii" or "are ga cute desho" (because in that context, they're both right). I'm not talking about people who are using the right words, just in a different language. I'm talking about RANDOM words (read my post again!) that just don't make sense. The people aren't necessarily stupid... just a little too thick to realize they sound quite ridiculous.

    Why is it that some ppl fail to see the point here?

    We're just trying to say that ppl using a language that they're unfamiliar with to show off or as a joke is annoying. As for the ppl thats actually LEARNING it and if they happen to use something out of context or out in public then thats NO PROBLEM!!

    Yay! -hugs-

    Of course it isn't a problem! They are trying to learn the language. There isn't any annoyance or shame in that. What is annoying however, is when people who use the language as a game, or just for their entertainment and say random words thinking it's funny. I do that with the English. But not often. I just think that some of the things they say in comarison to the things we say over here in the US is amusing. But I don't do it to make fun of their way of speaking. I just like how they speak.

    Hmm, I think I know what you all are trying to say....... You probably are saying don't use words like that unless you know the language. I dont really se anything wrong with that. I think it's funny in a sense....
