Holy Crap Japanese

A completely non-serious study tumblr.
Languages can be just for fun, right?
I studied Japanese for 2.5 years in college and I used it for 3 years while living in Japan. I've decided that I can keep it going for no reason at all! Or ya know, just because LEARNING IS GREAT!

reading: 誰が言う寸草の心のだれがいうすんそうのしんの
誰が    だれ    who言う    いう    to say
and my dictionary doesn’t recognize 寸草 together sooooo…
寸    すん    by itself jisho.org says this means a “sun or roughly 3.03 cm” what the WHAT? but when added to the beginning of other things it can mean “a moment’s leisure” 寸暇(すんか), “on the brink” 寸前(すんぜん), among other things. So…this is a word.草    そう    when pronounced そう it means “draft” or “rough copy” but it’s also the kanji for “grass” when you pronounce it くさ
and   心    しん    is heart, mind, spirit, or inner strength. (It’s also one of my absolute favorite kanji to write.)
sooo… meaning? yea, I dunno. but there’s some kanji! I liked writing this one throughout the month of May.
which, sorry y’all, life got busy. I’ll try to find myself on tumblr doing more than reposting Doctor Who pics soon. ^.^
