getsuyobi = monday
kayoobi = tuesday
suiyoobi = wednesday
mokuyoobi = thursday
kin'yoobi = friday
doyoobi = saturday
nichiyoobi = sunday

ichi = 1
ni = 2
san = 3
shi, yon = 4
go = 5
roku = 6
shichi, nana = 7
hachi = 8
kyuu, ku = 9
juu = 10

For months, its the same with the numbers but just add a "gatsu" behind: ichigatsu = january, gogatsu = may etc etc

watashi/watakushi = I
anata = you
ano hito = he/she
kare = he
kanojo = she
wataskushitachi/watashitachi = we

From what you've all seen in animes and other japanese speaking programs, there are many variants for I,you, etc etc such as kimi, boku, anta. They're all forms of informal speech and can vary from 1 word to another.

Studying japanese is hard but i think its kinda fun. Dewa, minna-san wa ishoo ni gambarimasho!

Eclair > Thanks for the correction. I'm bad with Japanese grammar, so I have no idea about nouns, verbs, and adjectives. :sorry:

Time to add in a few things:

Kyuuketsu literally translates to "Bloodsucking Demon", hence vampire (which I've posted earlier).

Jikan, like Toki, means time, but I don't know there's any difference between the two.

From what I've heard, Aoi Tsuki, which means "Blue Moon", can also mean "Love".

I still have plenty to add, but it's 12:46 AM right now, and I'm having a hard time trying to remember all of it! GAAAAA!!! hot *runs into a wall* god

Re: Learning Japanese

Post by Ngin on Fri May 23, 2008 2:15 am

here's mine ^^

the day bfore ytd = ototoi
yesterday = kinou [ou = o]
today = kyou
tomorrow = ashita
day after tmr = asatte
everyday = mainichi

morning = asa
night = ban

therefore, you can join it up. eg. yesterday morning = kinou 'no' asa
'no' means belongs to

week = shyuu [pronounced as shoo?]
month = getsu
year = nen

last [week/year] = sen XXX
this [week/year] = kon XXX
next [week/year] = rai XXX
[week] after next = sa rai XXX
every [week/year] = mai XXX

again, join is up and it will be.. eg last month = sen shyuu

^^ that's all for now.. next time.. if i remember i'll put in counters ^^

minee?

but yes.. add the numbers after mont/year/time..

other eg. next year = rai nen
this month = kon getsu
week after next = sa rai shyuu


HOWEVER, if you want to put last/next/this 'day' [eg. last monday] it has to be like this

oh.. just a reminder [earlier post has this]
sunday = nichi youbi
monday = getsu youbi
tuesday = ka youbi
wednesday = sui youbi
thursday = moku youbi
friday = kin youbi
saturday = do youbi

so eg, last thursday = sen shyou[shoo] no moku youbi [no means to belong to]
next wednesday = rai shyuu no sui youbi
following monday = sa rai shyuu no getsu youbi
