Hey guys

It's not nearly as complex as English, but as usual we find ways to screw it up.

Hey guys

Post by geishaboy »

You didn't think I had forgotten about you all did you?

I've been gone for a wee while, and for the newer members I'm the guy that founded this Japanese forum.

Anyway, NEWS! I have been awarded a scholarship to Osaka International University, which starts at the end of march, so I will make a point of popping in from time to time and imparting pearls of wisdom and the latest anime/manga news upon you all.

Also, school has finally finished for the year, so for a couple of months I will be able to moderate like I used to. LOL!~ (I was possibly THE slackest mod in the history of this website)

Anyway, I guess I should have some sort of Japanese in this thread, so here goes...

だらけ - darake, this is a cool little grammar from, and is put directly on to an noun, and works like a noun itself. It means "covered with", "surrounded by" or "crawling with"... you get the idea.

Lets take a look at some example sentences

人だらけの図書館です
hito darake no toshokan desu
It's a library full of people

酒だらけの店です
sake darake no mise desu
It's a shop with heaps of alcohol

その所へ行きたくない、学生だらけからです
sono tokoro e ikitakunai, gakusei darake kara desu
I don't want to go to that place, it's crawling with students

Try to think up your own sentences and post them here, that could be fun

Otherwise, I will see you all around the forum

CONGRATURATION!!

When you start school, you should start a sticky where you can blog us random facts about Japan or school or anything. =)

In the future, if you want translations, please post questions in the stickied thread labeled "Words, phrases or anything else wanted? Ask here".

And as for the translation, it's naughty. It says, "[male body part], please!"
