Like the sound?

Any vocabulary that you particularly like the sound of?

For me, that would be 昔話. I like saying it.

There’s a similar one to 昔話 which is 昔々 that means “once upon a time.”

I just like both of these because, as you said, they’re fun to say.

初めて but mostly because it reminds me the Inside Chanel video “For the first time,” even though they are totally unrelated to each other lol. It’s just how I decided to remember the word, I guess. Otherwise, just exclusively for a word that’s fun to say, maybe 時々.

物語 is by far my favorite Japanese word I know so far, I love the meaning and how it sounds : )

I really like the sound of all words that have a ゆう in them. 優秀, 友人, 勇者, all of these sound great :slight_smile:

I really like “rude” (male) sentence endings like だろう、だよ、なよ etc. because of how they sound and they’re just fun to say out loud when I’m reading to myself.

As a woman I will probably never be able to actually use these but at least when I’m on my own I can talk like a shounen protagonist :joy:

I perfectly understand what you mean. I, as a man, really love the 女性言葉 sentence enders, like のよ, わ, かしら, or saying あたし, and feel pretty bad I can’t use these in real life without sounding weird.

Oh well, at least on the internet no one knows I’m a guy ¯\(ツ)

分かる分かる :cry:

I wouldn’t mind coming off as tomboy-ish but the other way round it’s less forgiving I guess.

It seems like colloquial lady-speak seems to come easily to me for now. I like leaving out the copulas at the ends of sentences. Though I am not using

these ones yet. But sometimes I want to say 俺 like some arrogant prick :wink: and I have take an extra couple seconds before I start to speak
