ShukaBlog 2017.11.19: Gamsahamnida.

[Original Post] [←Zenkai no ShukaBlog!]

I have safely returned to Japan.
I’m home~!

*(The title means “Thank you” in Korean. Shuka writes the words phonetically in katakana so that her Japanese readers can read it. I decided to do something similar and romanize it, rather than translate it.)

Portuguese Influence on Japanese

I’m pretty sure I have a similar post on this, but this post is much more in depth because I wrote a whole term paper about this. If you love BOTH of these languages like I do or if you want to learn more about Japanese, stay tuned: 

Some (very brief) History:
In about 1543, the Portuguese arrived on the island of Tanegashima (off the coast of Kyushu) in Japan. The contact of the Portuguese and Japanese resulted in a lot of trade and religious conversion (on the part of the Japanese). For a pop culture context, look up the movie “Silence” with Andrew Garfield. At one point the daimyos promoted having the Portuguese in Japan, but at a later date they didn’t really like them anymore because he wanted to “nationalize” Nagasaki. So they kicked the Portuguese out. 

Linguistics!
Changes from Portuguese → Japanese

Some phonological changes:

Nasality

Portuguese nasal ending -ão translates to Japanese ending -an. Where do you think the word bread (pan パン) in Japanese comes from? Portuguese ‘pão’ bread! 

Epenthesis (insertion)

A consonant-vowel syllable type is the most frequent syllable pattern in Portuguese, however, Portuguese does allow consonant clusters at the beginnings and the ends of syllables. Japanese can only have consonant-vowel structures, but Japanese can also have 1consonant-vowel-2consonant syllable structures IF the second consonant is a nasal ‘n.’ Because of these differences in structure, Japanese has to change something about these words from Portuguese in order for them to fit into the language. One of these repair mechanisms is vowel epenthesis (or insertion). For example, Portuguese ‘cruz’ has a complex onset (’cr’) and a final consonant (’s’) which is not allowed in Japanese. To repair this, Japanese inserts a ‘u’ between the ‘k’ and ‘r’ sound, and an ‘u’ after the ‘s’ which makes it ku.ru.su. 

Consonant changes

Portuguese and Japanese differ on a couple of consonants (i.e. Portuguese has some consonants that “don’t exist” in Japanese phonology, so Japanese has to change these consonants to fit theirs). Some of these changes include:
Portuguese f → h sound 
Portuguese l and r → r (because Japanese has to l/r distinction)
Portuguese v → b when at the beginning of a word (my data had no examples of v or b in the middle of a word so I only placed the conditions that exist). 

I have more data regarding semantic change and orthographic choices (i.e. how Japanese chose to represent certain loan words in kanji). If you’re interested in seeing some of that, let me know. 

But one last interesting point: 

Did you know Japanese kabocha (pumpkin) comes from the Portuguese word for Cambodia? 

Before the Portuguese arrived in Japan, they were in Goa (India) and Macao (China). Supposedly on their route from Goa to Macau, they stopped in Cambodia. I’m thinking that maybe “kabocha” used to be “pumpkin of Cambodia” where, when the Japanese received these pumpkins from the Portuguese, just clipped it and ended up using “kabocha” to refer to the pumpkin. 

Just a fun fact. Because I was floored when I learned this. 

Edit: All data based on romanized orthographic recordings so orthography may not actually correspond with phonemes, etc.

Psychic Gifts best suited for the Signs

Before I begin my list, I want everyone to know it is possible to practice and fine tune all of these abilities. Every person has the ability to open their third eye, aka decalcify the pineal gland, which then can help open up your 6th sense as long as you practice at it. 

Aries - Clairvoyant: This type of psychic ability is best suited to Aries, who has to see it to believe it. Feeling things and communication isn’t normally your forte, but when you can physically see something, it is much easier for you to work with. Auror reading falls under this category, almost anything that you can see falls under this category. 

Taurus - Psychometrist: Reading information contained in the energy of objects would best be suited to Taurus, who rules over the physical plane and material objects. Not to mention your affinity for material possessions and pretty objects makes you more inclined to be able to sense and read information contained inside of objects. These are the type of psychics that are brought into the evidence room 

Gemini - Psychographer: This is the practice where you translate non-physical consciousness through “psychic writing”. This is where you tune out and just write on an unconscious level while tapping into otherworldly energies and just write what ever comes to your hand. And since Gemini rules the house of writing, this would be the more natural ability for you to develop. 

Cancer - Clairsensitive: This ability is all about feeling. It is sometimes confused with intuition, which is slightly different on a few levels. Cancers are deeply sensitive and connected to their feelings, so it is only natural that you have the ability to feel surrounding energies and thing on a non-physical conscious plane. 

Leo - Precognition: This is the ability to read all the possibilities of the future, and Leos have such a great imagination and desire for a positive future, that you often find yourself imagining what your own future would be like. And this ability can be translated to other people if you learn to use your imagination to sense out what possibilities someone has in their future. Though future readings are never easy and always have different possibilities, because nothing is ever set in stone and human beings have the gift of free will. 

Virgo - Psychic Surgeon: There is no one better for this type of job than the ruler of health and service. When you see someone in pain, it is your instinct and natural desire to do anything you need to do to help them. And as a psychic surgeon you can operate intraphysically on non-physical trauma. 

Libra - Telepath: This is the ability to read information mind to mind, and as a Libra with wonderful social grace that comes from your ability to connect with people and form partnerships, this seems like the best option for you. 

Scorpio - Lucid Dreamer: This is the ability to consciously know that you are dreaming and to access the dream world, Dream Control is also another step into this world, and what better ability for Scorpio to master than the ability to control your dreams, since you get an odd satisfaction from having power and control.

Sagittarius - Astral Traveler: Sagittarius rules the house of Travel and exploration, and when it comes to astral projection no one is more fearless and eager than you are to leave your physical body and traverse all physical and nonphysical planes. 

Capricorn - Retrocognition: The ability to look into past lives is a very sought after gift that many people seek readers out for to explain parts of their personality or fears that are unexplainable. And I think Capricorn would do well with this ability with an affinity for being sought after for advice and a connection to the past. 

Aquarius - Psychophoner: This ability allows a nonphysical consciousness to speak through you, and I think this would go well with Aquarius who rules communication on a much larger scale than either Gemini or Libra. Aquarius rules over the tarot card “The Star” because she symbolizes the communication and transferring information from the heavens to the earth. 

Pisces - Intuitive: This is an intimate and clear knowledge about a situation, and it is more based off of instinct and immediate reactions and feelings to something. It is the immediate and instinctive part that separates this from clairsensitive, and I think pisces works well with this ability because they are so sensitive and rule over the house of mystics and self undoing.

Mikasa Ackerman - No matter where you are

Here is my translation of Mikasa’s character song “No matter where you are”, sung by Ishikawa Yui. I have tried my best to display Mikasa’s true emotions and feelings, if you have any corrections then please feel free to message me! I wanted to fit the message of the song and convey her feelings, so this may not be a complete accurate jpn > eng translation. However, I hope you still enjoy and support Ishikawa!

When I woke up again,
At that moment… I found you,
The nightmare of that day,
You rescued me from it… gave me warmth

I have been chasing,
Right behind his back
Like I’m praying for it
Don’t ever look back,
Why are you leaving in such a hurry?

Please don’t go
Even though I’m always beside your side,
I still cannot overcome my fear
Please, don’t disappear, from me
You are my home to return to
No matter where you are

In a world like this,
The reason I’m still alive… is because of the people I want to protect
It’s only this reason I choose to stay alive

A dazzling light,
A light that came into the darkness
When I was covered with wounds,
At that time… it gave me encouragement

Please don’t go
Don’t leave me alone again
It’s much colder this time

Please don’t go,
For me.
You are my home to return to,
No matter where you are.

EXO REACT: To you moaning their name in your sleep

(LOW-KEY SMUT WARNING BUT NOT ALL OF THEM INCLUDE SMUT)

XIUMIN:

Xiumin had gotten in late after training, so he was still winding down by reading a book in bed, you sleeping right next to him. Whilst he was sitting up, you were cuddled into his side, an arm draped over his chest. 

He was simply playing with your hair and tracing patterns over you arm nonchalantly when he heard a loud sigh fall from your puffed out lips. He glanced down from his book, but went back to it once you didn’t make another sound. However, when he heard his name fall from your lips in an exasperated whine, he placed down his book. At first he thought you were in pain, maybe asking for help.

“Y/n?” He would try not to move too much just in case you were still asleep - which you were - and brushed a hair out of your face that had fallen over your eyes. Although when he felt your leg tighten around his and his name in a gasp form come from you again, he knew what was happening. Smirking to himself, he knew that you two hadn’t done anything in a while due to his busy schedule, so feeling bad and wanting to please you, he placed his book down and focused all his attention on you, stroking your legs, kissing your neck and waking you up by his hair tickling the inside of your thighs.

SUHO:

You and Suho were watching a movie on the sofa when you had fallen asleep on his chest. He was playing with your hair, completely unaware that you had fallen asleep, all of his attention still on the glowing screen. Only when you had shuffled on his chest to nuzzling your face in his neck, had he peeled his eyes from the screen and helped you re-adjust. 

“Junmyeon…” He heard you sigh satisfyingly in his ear, making him snake his arms around your waist, still not realizing you were dreaming.

“Yes baby?” You moaned quietly against the skin of his neck, sending a shiver down his spine. Suho kissed your shoulder and ran his hands under you shirt tracing your sides. And suddenly he wasn’t paying the movie any more attention. You were soon waking up to him placing you gently down on your back, him hovering over you and smirking.

“That dream of yours sounded really good baby girl. Do you want to go through it again?”

LAY:

Lay heard you moaning his name when he walked back upstairs in the middle of the night from getting a glass of water. He walked in the room to see the covers clinging to your body, you face contorted and twisting from side to side. It didn’t take long to register in Yixing’s mind what was going on as he could recognise those sort of moans anywhere.

He approached you confidentally, placing the water on the bedside table before getting back into bed with you and waking you up with a warm and heated kiss. Once you were aware of the situation and wrapped your arms around his neck pulling him more into you, he trailed his kisses down your jaw and to your neck, so he could lick and whisper in your ear.

“Tell me how good I was fucking you in your dream princess.”

BAEKHYUN:

Baekhyun hissed, his eyes jumping open at the sudden pain he felt in his shoulder. He looked around hazily, still slightly asleep, and took a look at where he felt the pain. Your hand was there, clinging onto his shirt where he felt your nails dig into his skin. Confused, he looked down at you, where one of his hands was wrapped around you, pulling you into his side, his hand resting on your upper thigh. He watched contently as you scrunched your face together and shuffled against his side again. 

“Fuck, Baekhyun…”

Baekhyun’s eyes widened when he heard the words sleepily fall from your pouted lips. Undeniably, he was instantly turned on, silently praying to himself that you would say something again, but all he got was a whine and your leg intertwining with his. He groaned as you involentarily shuffled against his thigh.

Once he had enough teasing, despite you literally not being conscious, he took your hand from his shoulder and pinned it to your side, crawling in between your legs, causing your eyes to shoot open and be met with his hungry ones.

“You sound so hot when you moan my name y/n.”

CHEN:

Chen stood in front of the mirror, doing up his tie for work. Your body was left unconscious, tangled in the mound of blankets that you and him had been sleeing comfortably in together not long before.

You had been tossing and turning all morning, but Chen had just pushed it off as you trying to get comfortable. That was until he heard a muffled, barely translatable, moan come from the bed where you were sound asleep in.

“Chen, baby please…”

He looked over to you, stopping midway through his tie, and smiling to himself. It made him feel so happy how even in your dreams, when he wasn’t even touching you physically, you were dreaming about him, and in this way. He walked over to you and kissed your head; as much as he wanted to stay in that bed with you all day making you feel good, he had to go to work. But before he went, he was sure to leave a little note:

“I hope I made you feel good this morning princess, but it’ll be even better when I get home XX”

CHANYEOL:

Chanyeol’s eyes were focused on the TV, not really paying much attention to you sound asleep on his shoulder next to him. That was until, a breathy moan of his name grasped his attention from the show. His mouth turned upwards into a grin and he watched your eyebrows furrow together and a frustrated groan fall from your puffy lips. There was no doubt that Chanyeol found this the hands down most sexiest thing of his life. His hand ran up your thigh that was resting on his lap, and he leant down to kiss your neck gently, slowly starting to wake you up. He smirked when your eyes opened to meet his.

“I know you just woke up baby, but do you mind telling me what that dream was, so whatever happened in it I can do to you right now?”

KYUNGSOO:

Kyungsoo looked at you, frozen from his place on the bed. You were an unconscious boyd lying next to him in bed. He didn’t quite know what to do; wake you up or leave you be. Although the more he seemed to leave you to calmly sleep, the more fidgeting and vocal you were becoming. 

He sat up in bed, watching you as you twisted and turned in the bed sheets.

“Y/n?” His voice whispered as he brushed a hair out of your face. “Y/n baby…”

It didn’t take much more of his delicate touches to awaken you from your dream, and although you were disapointed, you couldn’t complain to a sleepy Kyungsoo, hovering over you calling you baby.

KAI:

Jongin was sat up on his side, watching you as you were asleep. He was always the first one of you to wake up in the morning and he loved to admire your sleeping frame and the way you breathing was so deep. He was in the middle of stroking up and down you side when he heard a breathy moan escape your lips.

“Jongin…”

A smirk instantly appeared on his face and his hands started to rail lower than just your waist, lingering high up on your thigh, watching as your eyebrows furrowed together more. He was going to see how much it took to wake you from your dream about him.

SEHUN:

You and Sehun both had the day off and were spending it relaxing on the sofa, watching movies and just hanging out. Your head was on his lap, and Sehun was completely unaware to your dozed off state. His attention was drawn to his phone as his hands slowly brushed through your hair, massaging your scalp as you slept.

“Sehun…” 

“Yeah babe?” Sehun didn’t look away from his phone when he heard his name from you, thinking you were going to ask him to get you something - not that he probably would have anyway.

“Sehun…”

“Yeah?” His slightly annoyed tone left him when he saw you asleep on his lap, mouth agape and hands clenching. A smirked triumphantly, the idea of you having a dirty dream about him boosting his ego. He let his hand trace the inner side of your thigh.

*SIGH*

So this channel Vip Anime Station has been posting same-day “subs” of the new episodes and yeah I’ve had just about enough of them.

Before I even get into the heart of the matter, this is the kind of person who slaps the “fair use” paragraph into their video descriptions with 0 understanding of its meaning. Yeah. One of those.

Not only does this person have HEAPS of stolen art: X X X

But these “subs” they’re doing are bullshit.

You know why I don’t make subs? Because I still struggle with French verbal comprehension and I know I can’t give you guys a fully accurate product by myself. So I stand back and let the people over at Miraculousubs do their thing rather than throw up some half-assed translations for the views and subs. Because they actually know what they’re doing and they make sure we get a good, clear, and accurate (as possible) translation for each and every line.

Everyone is so impatient for subs that they don’t understand the risks that come with trusting channels like these. A good third of the lines in each episode subbed by Vip Anime didn’t even have translations and the ones that did were almost guaranteed to be rubbish.

Take, for example, Kagami’s line to Adrien when they’re outside the school (timecode 7:50 approx for those of you w/ a full version of the Riposte raw)

Kagami: “Dans ma famille, les second chances n'existe pas." 

VIP’s sub: "In my family, these second chances merely exist.”

  • ok what
  • No?????
  • Where did you get “Merely” from

That translates to: “In my family, second chances don’t exist.”

Adrien: “D’accord.”
VIP Sub: “Sure. Why not?”
Actual translation: “Alright.”

Most of the lines in that episode have errors like that, some distorting the line’s meaning, some not making sense, and some just way off the mark. Again: that’s assuming they even had a sub at all.

Now, I’m not saying all the lines they’ve done are wrong. Some are pretty accurate. But enough are wrong for it to matter.

Also, funny thing, in the past 20 minutes I’ve noticed some of the subs have changed. When I went back just a moment ago to confirm that Kagami line bullshit, a new translation was there:

VIP’s sub: “In my family, second chances doesn’t exist.”

Well…ignoring the bad grammar…at least that’s a closer translation.

So yeah maybe they’re trying to fix up their subs right now, good on them, except 350k people have already read their botched subs.

Look fam. I get you wanna be the first one with subs out but you owe it to people to at least do a decent job because a lot of people don’t know shit about the French language and have no idea they’re being lied to. 

Also, dude, seriously? If you don’t have a clue about the French language then you have no business making translations for a FRENCH SHOW. Va te faire foutre.

So guys…if you’re gonna watch their subs, please be aware that they are probably NOT accurate (especially initially). Just wait for Miraculousubs to do their thing. It might take a minute with them but you can trust their translations.

Best Language Learning Apps

Learning a new language can be…difficult. Actually, at times, that’s an understatement. I’ve compiled a list of the best apps and websites I’ve found, including a few specifically for French.

Duolingo

This is one of the most well know websites/apps for langauge learning. It’s great for basics and beginning grammar. It can also be fun because you can earn points to buy extra lessons like flirting!

Busuu

Another well known vocabulary learning resource, Busuu is great because you can learn in order of A1, A2, B1, B2. I prefer Busuu over Duolingo mainly for that reason. Busuu has tons of super useful everyday vocabulary, and also phrases are taught, which can be a lot better than singular words.

Fluentu

Fluentu is an app where you can view videos in your target language with subtitles. They are divided by level which makes it really easy!

Memrise

Memrise is by far one of my favorite apps to use for language. It has many different decks of words/phrases, and each word/phrase comes up at certain times to make sure you remember them. My favorite is the conjugations! Conjugations has been the hardest thing for me with my french, and this app has helped make it so much easier for me.

Podcasts (Apple app)

This is a basic app, and it’s not really specific to language learning, but listening to podcasts is so helpful when it comes to listening comprehension. My favorite for french is News in Slow French, One Thing In A French Day, and CoffeeBreak French.

HelloTalk

I LOVE HelloTalk! It’s a really clean app that allows you to speak with people learning a language you know that, if you want, also knows your target language. It has so many helpful tools like in-app translation and you can also set up a language exchange where you text in the first language for a certain amount of words, then the other, you actually speak in the first language, and then the second. I’ve met so many awesome people from France to Belgium to Canada to Morocco!

Linqapp

I use this app a little less, but I still like it. It’s mainly for asking questions about the language you need help with. You can make sure something you wrote is correct and native sounding, or have someone help you translate a phrase! People respond super quickly on here.

Brainscape

This app isn’t specifically for language, and the company actually has some apps for specific languages, but it’s really great. It’s very similar to Memrise, except you can create as many decks as you want.

Websites and Apps Specifically for French

Learn French- Verbs

This is actually one of the apps specifically for language that Brainscape has made. It’s just like brainscape but it has preloaded cards for each verb tense and key french verbs.

Bescherelle

Bescherelle is a website, but I went onto Safari and added it onto my home screen so it was easily accessible. I love using this app for whenver I need to know the conjugation for a verb and I can’t remember! Usually translators suck when it comes to conjugation, so this is really helpful.

Frenchcrazy.com and frenchtogether.com

Frenchcrazy and frenchtogether.com are sites that feauture great tips and immersion blog posts! They are typically pretty funny and get me in the mood to study my french.

That’s all I have for now! I hope these apps can help you with your language studies. -Hailey

T/N: “your panties are going yousoro” has to be the funniest line I’ve translated to date. Also, the line “aren’t you going to be my bride”” is more literally “won’t you give yourself to me?”
