I believe the いる in this case means “to stay”.
Brilliant, so the sentence would be: “But if I do nothing but stay in bed, I just get fat!”
行こー = 行こう = 行きましょう
For some reason it doesn’t let me add a small edit, “Body is too similar to what you recently posted.”
Edit: I’m also not quite sure about the いる part, but you usually see it on ばかりいると as a whole.
Thank you Kazzeon! I’ve just noticed that some of these points were already addressed by Belthazar above! That’s the problem with a chaotic thread and so many posts! And yes, I’m not able to edit posts this morning either. Something is definitely broken there! Thank you again Kazzeon!
FYI, I’m pretty sure the キャッチ＆リリース comment is just “catch and release”. It’s a common way to allow fishing in places where there are low numbers of fish.
Yes, but it’s implied that he wanted to catch and release the fish.
Shouldn’t it be translated to Nice Idea instead of Good Idea?? I mean both make sense but it literally says naisu aidea.
It’s 行こう. Volitional form. Long vowel mark means long vowel.
This may be getting out of hand.
Thank you! Yes, I’m an idiot… I just saw your same reply above!
I don’t think anyone can be in any doubt about this now!
I’d recommend Jisho.org over google translate. It is working pretty good for me so far and will show you several different meanings for each part of the sentence. I am quite a beginner as well. Been using wanikani for a couple months and am a level 6, but I think the only words I recognized so far were 竹、 コーヒー、今日、and 太い
Good idea is a lot more common than nice idea in English, I’d say.
Nice avatar, btw.
That’s something to watch out for, too. People see words borrowed from English and decide the way to translate them is back to the original words, even if you wouldn’t use them like that in English (or even if they actually mean something very different in Japanese.)
Imagine a Japanese person running into the word “tycoon” and deciding it should be translated into Japanese as “大君”.
Why is ヒマ written using Katakana there?
No idea. I guess just because it looks cute.
I would love a line by line translation, just so I can see if I was correct…
All it takes is for people to do it!
Alright, I’ll start:
here’s the doc.
People who know what they’re doing please intervene because I most certainly don’t.
Why not just post in the thread? That’s what this thread is for, right?
