I might just be an idiot, but I don’t think the first sentences has a logical sentence structure. Am I just not seeing how the sentence works?
It does make sense to me, but it could certainly use some comma’s.
I want you to try to bear this truth, and that (truth) is, these kanji make up the word clownfish.
Are you familiar with the meaning of “bear” as a verb? Which is like, “to endure something unpleasant.”
Obviously the kanji 熊 does not mean this kind of bear, but it’s word play.
Yes, that was not the problem. It seems in the end I unconsciously replaced the first “I” with “If you”. Not sure how that happened. Thanks a bunch y’all!
Looks like there’s a missing “that” in “that’s [that] these kanji make up the word”… although “bear this truth, that these kanji make up the word” would work as well.
