Pronounced hakai in Japanese, pagoe in Korean, and pohuai in Chinese.

(I'm assuming that you have the proper fonts installed on your system to see that... if you don't, let me know and I'll send it to you as a graphic.)

I couldn't even see it, I think this computer doesn't have the translation feature, the language barrier is on.

Um, what?

Are you relaying a message for Yannah or something? What exactly is going on?

Anyway... a .PSD file is a PhotoShop Document, and you open it with PhotoShop.

I'm still pretty confused as to what is going on here.

Hi, Yannah. Suho's answer is right.
Japanese use three types of character which is Hiragana, Katakana, and Chinese.
Suho's answer is right. It is using chinese character though.
If you want to know how to write in Hiragana, I can send it too you.
Cya.

Hi Yannah! As always thanks for being ungrateful and ANNOYING as all hell!

Suho did you a nice favor, despite your obvious lack of respect and BRAINS and then you tell him it "doesn't look Japanese", based on your vast knowledge I'm sure.

Tell me, how would you be able to know what's what if you don't know the languages in the first place?

I grow tired of your insolence and because of people like you I visit here less and less everyday... Thanks for being part of ruining a good thing.

Ass.

I know that synax, In fact I already thanked him. K? So, why not just listen to me.
I'm just making sure that it is in major japanese language, because I'm doing it for my art project. And I know that I have explained what's the use of this thread. I wanted to pass my subject, is that so hard to understand? Why not stop being such an ass and maybe just maybe we'll learn how to get to know each other. J.K.
Hiroki told me that it is in chinese character so I'm getting his help too.
I'm greatful that SOMEBODY can actually help me with this.

OK, reading synax's response has been a nice vicarious experience, allowing me to remain calm. Thank you, synax.

Yannah: As Hiroki explained, Japanese uses three different writing systems (four, actually, if you count romaji). Most words in Japanese (especially nouns), though, are written in kanji (Chinese characters). If you asked a Japanese to write the word "destruction," he/she would most likely use the kanji, not the hiragana. When I was learning Japanese, we used hiragana all the time. Then I actually went to Japan and discovered that practically everything is written in kanji. I'm pretty sure Hiroki can back me up on this.

Anyway, what I sent you is authentic. If you want the hiragana characters, perhaps Hiroki will oblige you. Personally, I think kanji have a certain grace and beauty that work well in design. It's up to you, though.

Also, a telling comment:

quote:

To you it's a picture. To Hiroki and I (and others here), it is a word, and carries with it all the power of language. If you are going to use language in design, you need to understand that it is language, and not a picture. It does make a difference.

Anyway, I hope everything works out for you. I've got things I need to take care of, so you'll excuse me if I drop out of the discussion.

[Edit: Yannah snuck in a reply there while I was typing...

quote:

Yannah, I'm not sure if you are going to understand this, but what I sent you is Japanese. What Hiroki meant was not that it is written in Chinese, but that the Japanese use Chinese characters as well--as do the Koreans. It doesn't necessarily mean that it is Chinese. Ah, this probably isn't going to make any sense to you. It tried to explain it above, and if that doesn't help, I don't really know what else to say...

To sum up, I would advise you to use what I sent you, because that is what the Japanese would write...]

Hi, guys. How are ya?
I am very surprised a lot of people know Japanese well.
Hey, Suho! Have you studies Japanese? And have you been to Japan?
Which part????

BTW, Yannah! I have sent word document including screen shot of destruction.
Probably you can see it as print screen is on the document as grafic. And I think you have MS word on your machine, don't you.
I wrote three different ways of expressing destruction.
If you need any further help, let me know.

All right. Cya, guys.

Hiroki: Yup, I studied Japanese in university. My original plan was actually to go to Japan, but I got kind of side-tracked and ended up staying here. I did visit Japan for a week in '95--I stayed with friends in Tokyo and Yokohama. A typhoon came in for half of the time I was there, though, so we ended up spending those few days just sitting around and drinking sake. I could think of worse ways to spend my time, though.

I definitely want to go back someday, but I would want to brush up on my Japanese before doing so. It's gotten a bit rusty.

[Edit: Also, I looked at the image you posted, and would I be correct in saying that hakai would not normally be written in katakana?]

Hi, Suho. I would say yes, you are right.
Generally speaking, only when I write some words inported from overseas, Katakana will be used. For example, English word table, we pronounce like English way. So peple use Katakana. Make sense?
Actually how many languages have you learned so far?
I'd love to study Spanish for my next one.
Cya.
