I’ve known this grammar point for a while, including that for する verbs you only repeat the する, not the whole thing (e.g. 勉強すればするほど). But this was the first time I ever saw this with a verb in ている form. So now I know that in that case you only repeat the いる the second time, not the whole verb.
This reminded me that my Osakan husband likes to tease me. I learned a lot of my Japanese by imitation and we live in Gifu, so I’ve picked up the southern Gifu dialect. It resembles Kansai-ben, but the intonation is different. When we go to Osaka to see his family, he often teases my Gifu-isms. XD
Anyway, I now know the difference between なまり and 方言.
方言 is more like the words used/word choice plus the intonation and stuff
なまり is more like just the intonation and the way you say the words.
For example, standard Tokyo-ben uses しゃべってる but here in Gifu and further west we say しゃべっとる. It’s the same word, but we use と instead of て to conjugate present continuous form. Dude also said Osaka and Gifu have different なまり because in Osaka the have a raising intonation on the べ where in Gifu we go down on the べ and up on the っと.
This probably makes sense when you consider that なまり relates to the verb 訛る / なまる, and thus would refer to the actual action of speaking (intonation and way of saying), whereas 方言 would be more about the concept of the actual words chosen.
For anyone who’s curious about what Chinatsu’s father is saying on page 64, I hope I have it all correct on the vocabulary sheet. (Lots of basic research.) I fear that if I continue and try to figure/add his vocabulary on page 65, I’ll soon forget all standard Japanese and instead will only know a little 津軽弁.
Nice! I was thinking of posting something similar, but you beat me to it
I won’t have time until Monday evening, but if no one has taken care of the next few times he speaks (well, after that it’s fairly straightforward; I think this time is extra confusing to establish his character).
As (として) the son (息子) of (の) a farmer’s family (農家)
A little of that knowledge/knowledge related to that
That part is slurred, which is why you are having trouble I guess.
入れておきといいし (not 100% sure if it shouldn’t be おき or おく, but the meaning is the same)
(Put that knowledge inside (one’s head) = learn)
おく: do in advance for the future
といい: it is/would be good
I’d say that a little more literal translation would that “as the son of a farmer’s family, it’s a good idea to learn some related knowledge just in case, too”
