チーズスイートホーム: Vol 2 Week 4 Discussion (Chapters 30-32)

I did the same for the fist volume.
It is definitely less enjoyable (and way more time consuming) to go through each sentence with Jisho and grammar resources but I’m pretty sure it helps :slight_smile:

You can always post to comment on the story and/or choose a sentence you are not 100% certain about and ask if you are correct; what takes a lot of time is trying to make sense of those you don’t understand at all, for simple sentences the longer will be retyping it ^^

Ok, because I forgot about that (u_u’), I cut at the wrong place and did not choose the correct へん…

Ok, I should have looked at Bunpro…
With this, the sentence makes more sense and Chi is not thinking too highly of herself (+ it fits better with the 「チーがんばったんらよ」 afterward)

I… how did I mistake よ for ょ? The width would be different…

Oh! right, I missed the “More reading” column on Jisho. You even linked the lesson last week x_x

Yay \o/
Even though I feel stupid for the obvious mistakes, there was less to correct :smile_cat: Also, I didn’t have to ask for help for every single sentence in this chapter x)

Ch31!

  • (p80) 「ねこには牛乳ぎゅうにゅうあげちゃいけないんじゃないの?」
    • ねこには => “for cats”
    • 牛乳ぎゅうにゅう => “(cow’s) milk”
    • あげちゃいけない => 上げる (“to raise”) in て-form + は (ちゃ) + いけない (“must not do”)
    • ん => ?
    • じゃない => “is not”
    • の => question marker
      => Shouldn’t you not raise cats with milk? or something like that? (She’s right, milk is bad for mammals after weaning, except around a third of humanity, mainly Europeans)
  • (p90) 「あそびに夢中むちゅうこえないみたいね」
    => She is too focused on playing to hear you, isn’t she? ね?

This chapter was easy, Chi is asking for milk in a loop, not much to understand ^^

Also, she is quite smart to push the food towards the table to get milk, too bad for her that the mother mistook it for Chi offering to share x)

あげちゃいけない => this is using the “to give” meaning of あげる, I believe.

んじゃないの => I am not really sure about this one, but I believe this is a suffix you can add to the end of a sentence, and it is basically similar to adding “isn’t it?” in English. If I am correct, the ん at the start is acting as the nominalizer の, turning the previous part of the sentence into a subclause that gets negated by the じゃない. “Isn’t it that you shouldn’t give milk to cats?”, or more naturally, “You shouldn’t give milk to cats, should you?”

Poor Chi, even though all her attempts were quite clever… =^.^=

Yes, of course…

I thought about ん being a の, about the the first part being a sub-clause but didn’t connect the dots u_u’

At least, my translation wasn’t that far off the mark =)

I just now found the thread and realized I’m a bit behind (as well as with the other book club (been a bit busy), but I try to tackle chapter 30-32 throughout this week =)

I feared that I made you flee when I said you should try to translate a sentence :stuck_out_tongue: (I hope @Toyger is also simply busy)

Well… I don’t need help for this one :smiley_cat:
What is happening to me? :astonished:

Chi is so cute in the second-to-last panel of p98 :3
Poor father though.

My image is broken O_o
Was it always broken or did it die later? D=

I’m still seeing it so it might be an issue with your browser or connection (I can open it in private browsing so my browser’s cache should not have anything to do with me seeing the image)

I can see it now O_o
So guess it just didn’t load properly for some reason =P

Your browser/computer/ISP don’t like AWS and tried to avoid talking to them? :thinking::stuck_out_tongue:

My computer can be a bitch sometimes :wink:
It is only 3 years old, so no where near retirement yet, but maybe starting to get dementia or poor vision =P
Some eyedrops (reload) and it could see the image =^_^=

Backup then reinstall the OS (wait 6 month, repeat :stuck_out_tongue:)

Or install Gentoo :smile_cat:
