personally im seriously fascinated with languages.
if you really take a couple minutes to think about it, its truly amazing.
i mean, we can comprehend something so easily and to other launguage speaking people its merely jibberish!
we can even write it down in series of squiggles and lines without even having to really think about it.
so thats why im taking on new languages!
im learning spanish in school and slowly learning japanese on my own.
so if you feel the same way heres some words we can memorize together!
daijoubou-- are you ok?
kage- shadow/light | depending on how its used. for example tsuki means moon as you learned earlier on. and tsukikage
means moonlight as opposed to moonshadow.
those are just some words you can know ^__^
heres a gramatical chart on what the words like "kun" "sama" etc. literally mean.
when you put an ending on a name like "sama" it has a meaning. as in the level of respect you have for that person or
authority they have.
levels suffix example
most polite -sama used to the ones you worship or look up to. sailor moon called tuxedo mask
kamen-sama to show her love and respect for him.
proffesionals -sensei used for teachers, doctors or anyone who is a expert in their category.
common -san this is used for everyone.
seniorstudents -senpai if you've watched wedding peach you probably noticed they called yaganiba
yaganiba-senpai which litterally means they are older than you but still may be a close friend.
less formal -kun this is mostly used for males but basically you use it for friends, or people
that are younger or lower than you.
least formal -chan this is used for people that are closest to you. including best friends,
relatives or even pets babies or little children.
least formal -ko more of a feminine ending than chan and used for pets, babies, children,
do you allways have to use a suffix?
no. you dont ^__^
Not using any suffix indicates a close relationship which could include immediate family, childhood friends, or adult
Sensei and Senpai can be used by themselves or as a suffix added to someone's name.
