I think there's a missing hiragana there? Like, it reads "tsukurimasata". I think it should be "tsukurimashita"?

Excuse me.
Pronounced as : su mi ma se
Written as : すみませ

I think it's "sumimasen", is it not?

Whats this?
Pronounced as : ko re
Written as : これ

"Kore" means "this", but very close. If you want to say "What is this?" you can say "Kore wa nani?", right?

This.
Pronounced as : so re
Written as : それ

That.
Pronounced as : a re
Written as : あれ

"Sore" is "that", but the distance of the noun is closer than "Are". Just like the hierarchy you have written for "Koko", "Soko", and "Asoko".

What Wasabi typed is "tsukurimaata", most likely a typo. Phio is right, it should be tsukurimashita (作(つく)りました)

Excuse me.
Pronounced as : su mi ma se
Written as : すみませ


phio69 wrote: I think it's "sumimasen", is it not?

Yup~ You're correct, it's sumimasen (すみません). Just note that sumimasen can be used for various situations, from excuse me to sorry to trouble you to pure apology.

Different ways of expressing apology can be used for different circumstances and also with regards to the status of the person you're speaking to. Generally, between close friends and family members (casual interactions), Gomennasai (ごめんなさい) [or gomen ne(ごめんね)for female and gomen na (ごめんな) for male] is used. Other expressions like moushiwake arimasen (申し訳ありません) can also be used when expressing formal apology to someone of higher status (usually superior). The list goes on though smile


Whats this?
Pronounced as : ko re
Written as : これ

"Kore" means "this", but very close. If you want to say "What is this?" you can say "Kore wa nani?", right?

Yup~ Kore wa nani (これは何) is correct, however, I would suggest you to use Kore wa nan desu ka (これは何ですか) for more formal situations. Nani kore (何これ)can also be used, BUT only for very casual interactions (close friends, family). When used inappropriately, it can be offensive to the other party.

This.
Pronounced as : so re
Written as : それ

That.
Pronounced as : a re
Written as : あれ

"Sore" is "that", but the distance of the noun is closer than "Are". Just like the hierarchy you have written for "Koko", "Soko", and "Asoko".

Absolutely right smile The word for 'this' should be Kore (これ)/kono (この) depending on the sentence structure~

Nevertheless, thanks Wasabi for the hard word in typing out the list of useful words and thanks phio for editing them! I believe many people can benefit from the list~ smile

Thank you for clarifying things, ALT!
Ah, I hear those things a lot in J-Dramas I watched, haha~ I actually understand some phrases, but I can't get them together in a sentence, especially when I have to use particles. I'm totally lost about that. >__<

Anyway, sure, I benefited quite much from this list. big smile

No problem Phio, I'm glad to help out smile

Just a couple of things to note:

Wasabi wrote:Very Good.
Pronounced as : yo ka ta
Written as : 好

There's a small 'tsu' sound (short sound) between the ka and ta. Hence, we'll have yokatta (よかった) instead smile

Wasabi wrote:They.
Pronounced as : ka re ra wa
Written as : かれらわ

Karerawa is more for saying "they are". For the single word, Karetachi (彼達) may be more suitable smile


Wasabi wrote: May not know.
Pronounced as : te ki ru na i ka mo shi ri ma sen
Written as : 手きるないかも知りません

Wasabi~ do you mean "dekinai kamo shiremasen"? (may not be able to do it)

Wasabi wrote:Both also don't want.
Pronounced as : dou mo i ta nai
Written as : どうもいたない

Wasabi, please explain a little about the phrase structure? >_<

Wasabi wrote: Trouble you.
Pronounced as : o ne na i si mas tsu
Written as : おねないしまつ

I think there's a typo~ It's onegaishimasu (お願いします).

Wasabi wrote:Far.
Pronounced as : so ko
Written as : そこ

I think Phio pointed it out~ generally, it's more for saying "there"

Wasabi wrote:More far.
Pronounced as : a so ko
Written as : あそこ

"There" (but even further away than Soko)

Wasabi wrote:Macdonalds
Pronounced as : Makudonaludo
Written as : マクドナゥド (katakana)

Em~ just a small typo for the romanji -> Makudonarudo
As for the katakana, it's written as マクドナルド

Hope that helped a little >_<
