If it's at the beginning of a sentence then it's most probably a time indicator, so it's safe to assume it's"kyou wa", like that :
And if someone want to say "konnichi wa" at the beginning of a sentence and don't want people to misread it well then refrain from using kanjis and goes for こんにちは, just like that :

I always wanted to learn a new language, and when I became able to I hesitated between Japanese, Russian and FSL (french SL, I'm a frogfag).
I thought then (and still think, maybe out of ignorance) that SL is scarier than any other language. How on earth do you go on speaking with your arms ?
Dats crazy man
#177 - ilovetocuddle (06/02/2014) [-]
its the same concept, just symbols. once your good at in its not awkward either, and just gets really fluid and fast, sometimes to fast. with emotion and shit like that.
Hell my teacher could sign 2 different people one hand each and hold both conversations.
Then I look at Korean/Chinese/Japanese and... just wat.
#178 - nao (06/02/2014) [-]
Korean is easy to learn but pretty uninteresting as a language.
Japanese is easy to learn but hard to speak properly (spoken language have a gazillion rules that are written nowhere but you have to respect anyway).
Chinese is extremely hard to learn and flatly impossible to speak properly. Don't even try. It's impossible.

There I go.
Speaking english is like touching someone's arm with your finger and moving it around. It's fluid, there is no break of contact, and it's hard to be misunderstood. Like, saying "dog" is signing little circles, and saying "cat" is making little lines : hard to mistake one for the other.
Korean is the same as english.
Japanese would be like standing in front of someone and poking him with a stick. The words' meaning is easily carried : like, "dog" is three pokes and "cat" is four. It makes the conversation kind of slow, and somewhat jerky, but in the end you get your message across. The problem is that you have 100+ sticks, all different sizes; and you must chose your stick before saying a single word, on the basis of who is the other person, how intimate you are, what are the hierarchy links between you, etc. etc. And if you chose a stick only a little bit too short or too long, the other person will be offended.
That is to say, you can study Japanese grammar for years and be a master at it, if you don't know how to chose the right stick, then your Japanese is useless.
Funny enough JSL doesn't have the stick problem and is actually much much easier to learn and use than actual Japanese.
Speaking Chinese is like hitting each other with a soap bar rolled into a wet towel. For each word, there is multiple aspects that carry meaning : the place of the body where your hit lands, the angle from which you strike, the force of the blow, even the wetness and the temprature of the towel. If you get one of these slightly wrong then the word have a completely different meaning and your sentence will make no sense.
It makes conversations messy, slushy, with a lot of misplaced hits and misunderstood words.
Like, it's totally possible to try to say "Hello there !" and end up saying "I fist my pets" because the towel was too cold and you hit the knee instead of the thigh.
For any westerner it's a nightmare.

I catch it bro, pardon my goldfish brain.
Before I try my hands at making sensory analogies, may I ask if it is possible to ask you a couple of questions about ASL and deaf culture via PM ?
I'm quite curious about a number of things, and as I know no deaf person, I've never had my knowledge thirst quenched.
Don't hesitate to decline, I'll understand if you don't have time to lose with a troublesome white cis non-deaf scum. I know that you must be asked questions quite often already.
I'll post my briliant attempt at bringing touch into the debate in another comment in a min.

who gives a fuck about the movement. why play pokemon for the movement. gen 6 sucks big donkey balls and is most likely the worst one ever.

diagonal movement is blissful. The games are perfectly enjoyable though the league was supremely disappointing and the post-game questline was buried so deep I had to crack open the guidebook to find it. In my opinion the graphics have reached the uncanny valley and it's all starting to kind of break down a little.

Since lots of women like to infest their bodies with all sorts of chemicals from botox to alcohol and nicotin, I rather have my children get their nutrition from clean formulas than those pesticide infested milk-jugs.
#527 - 4chan refugee (05/24/2014) [-]
Then you have to choose.
Milk that comes with whatever elements the girl inhaled, drank or ate that didn't get to react and excrete in her life till shortly before breastfeeding
Clean formula without any anti-bodies.
#528 - 4chan refugee (05/24/2014) [-]
That example is for notorious women that smoke and drink a lot. If you have a girl-friend that isn't a complete idiot and you are damn sure about it, go ahead and breastfeed.
#530 - 4chan refugee (05/24/2014) [-]
Formula-anon here. I agree. It was meant for those chubby flab-steaks of industrial excretion (McDonald's regulars) and skinny skin-lotion dippers and chemical wrinkle ironers.
If the girl is nothing of the above, breastfeeding should give the advantages you seek.

Very good point, mate.
