More random stuff. If you want to know how to say a particular phrase, please don't hesitate to ask.
yaru ja - not bad [indicating one's ability/skill]
yoku iu na - how dare you say that [literally "you really said it"]
zama miro - serves you right
naru hodo - i see / no wonder
sono toori - just like that [or "just like that person said", in that context]
soro soro - it's about time [example : "soro soro iku ka" → it's about time we leave, isn't it]
genki dashite - cheer up [literally "let out the GENKI-ness". dashite can be replaced with dase to make it more colloquial]
shikata ga nai - can't be helped [note that this differs slightly from shoganai (shiyo ga nai) --> unsure of the spelling, though]
Also note that I am not a native of Japan, but if you have any questions, or stuff you're not sure of, feel free to ask. There are several Japanese forumers here, who, I'm sure, will be glad to help out, or correct me if I got anything wrong. ^^
I ll say a few things about the structure of the sentences.
Lets see an easy sentence:
Watashiwa Amerikajin desu=I am American
First of all, the verb goes always in the end of the sentence, and here the verb is desu.
Second, the objective of the sentence, here Watashi=I, is always followed by the particle wa(its written ha, but thats another story).
Now, lets see a question:
Blue_rebel-sanwa sensei desuka? = Is Blue_rebel-san a teacher?
Hai, sou desu. = Yes, she is
The easy thing about the question is that nothing change positions, see? Only thing, you have to put the ka particle in the end.
Now, as for the answer is short. That is because "sou", functions like a kawarimi (replacement, for you narutards only ) in place of "Blue_rebel-sanwa sensei ".
Thats it for today! Next time for more!!!
He, he, he, this is sooo coool! *jumps up and down out of excitment* I know a few words... well, I aint a pro like any of u guys, but my sister taught me all the bad words like: Baka & Sukebe (<-- frequently seen in anime's.)
