Japanese - a programmer's language

0 0

At first glance, Japanese looks to westerners like a very strange and difficult language. However, in many ways it is more similar to English than other European languages are, and an increasing amount of its vocabulary comes from English. In addition, so far I have found Japanese to be a very logical language.While half an hour is not sufficient to teach the entirety of the Japanese language, I intend to show a glimpse of what Japanese is like, and some of its interesting idiosyncrasies. This will include "English made in Japan" (wasei-eigo), honorifics such as the "san" in "Daniel-san", and why both toilets and temples get the same "o" prefix (bikago).
