Author of WICKER PARK WISHES, a novel, published by Eckhartz Press "It's like 'Hi Fidelity' from a woman's perspective. A 90s book about relationships." - John Siuntres, WordBalloon. Language discussion and expression, a view from the city: "A fascinating and enlightening look at language and other important matters" - Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune "...definitely an interesting voice!" - Languagehat.com "...a great site!" - Mary Beard, Times Literary Supplement
In yesterday's Giongo Gitaigo post, Language Hat offered a link to a list called "Japanese sound effects and what they mean." So if you click on it, you'll see an alphabetized table of words. Exciting.
Compare that commendable list to this pretty manga on the right from the incredible Japanese site. It's a lot harder to memorize the "Japanese sound words" if you have to stuff the words into your brain from a list that may never be conquered. The manga makes it a lot easier.
