actually, there is both an L and an R sound in Japanese, but for the Japanese they are almost the same sound, but of different strength, just like we can pronounce A in different ways.
That's why fellows can come out as ferrows and really as rearry, or Flat Head as Frat Head(or actually fratu hedu or something like that).
Are you really in Japan(no offense of course)?
Your about half right. The Japanese language itself, does not contain the an R or L. Only
since the introduction of English as an "outside" language have the Japanese begun to use
the sounds in their vocabulary. They have even invented a whole new system called Katakana to accommodate this "invasion" of an outside language. The Japanese have had to learn, or more or less accept how, to speak using the R and L.
Yes, I live in Japan.
What is you current project Hjj??
Yes, since there is katakana, there is an 'R' sound, that's pretty much what I meant
Katakana is definitely a part of the Japanese language!
The older hiragana contains the same syllables as the katakana, both have the R(ru, ri, re, ro) but neither has the letter L. The L is however interchangeable with the R, they are almost the same sound. It similar to how we can pronounce A in different ways; ay etc. To us these are the same letter but to someone who isn't a westerner they might be seen as different letter or sounds, in the same way as we differentiate between L and R.
LVC 1920 201 555 from 1999 for pretty much all of February so far. I'm getting a pair of Babe Ruth X Warehouse 1000xx soon though, I will probably start on those after february.
Today I'm wearing my "new" Julian Red Detroits from 2004, yellow selvedge. Best modern cut and pretty good denim!
In September I'm going to Tokyo and will spend 3 weeks finding my next project
could you do proxy hjj?? heheh good luck!
I might be able to proxy when I've settled in Tokyo.
ohh your moving there?
yup, going to study there for one year!
If your coming here, you'll get a better understanding of what I mean. We're talking about sounds, not the written language. There is no R or L sound in the Japanese language. Yes, when you write ra ri ru re ro in "Romanji", another western invention, it may appear the have the visual R and L. In truth, neither are used. Start practicing your R's and L' with a softer D sound and you make yourself understood a heck of a lot better than if you use the Katakana R,L sound. Trust me;-)
this is cool:evil::evil::evil::evil::evil::evil::evil::evil:
I hope you didn't get offended by our conversation. I rather enjoyed having an intelligent
tete de tete on this forum. Refreshing.
Of course not! I know very little Japanese and really like learning more about the language. I don't quite understand though since I've definitely heard Japanese say words with R in them, but I'll learn once I get to Japan!
I would be interest too if it will be some japanese brand with the slim or tapered leg model
brand and model is decided, already:
yeah i know , but i hope for new coming up to be quite skinny or tApered. the Pherrow is quite too big for me
dont think that there will be another one, though...
Wait 2 years... I'm sure another will start up by then.
i was taling about "by now".
