About me

Weniger Teile means "Less Parts". It's a policy of a company. I have no relation to the company, but I've liked the words.

Index of the Entries about Japanese Grammar
It is not always true that native speakers well know their own languages. If a native speaker of Japanese says that there is a subject in Japanese sentences, it would be better for you not to trust his sayings.

My favorite passage is:
The doctrine of the separation of powers was adopted by the convention of 1787 not to promote efficiency, but to preclude the exercise of arbitrary power. The purpose was not to avoid friction but, by means of the inevitable friction incident to the distribution of the governmental powers among three departments, to save the people from autocracy. (MYERS V. UNITED STATES, 272 U. S. 52 (1926) at 293)


The following is some of all my entries. Some are for the friends only.

Testimonials from My Friends


ありがとうございました!
artboy598
This person is very helpful for me. He explains the nuance of Japanese and gives a very detailed explanation of how small differences can alter the emotion in which you want to convey. He also acknowledges that languages are ever changing and doesn't declare that his way is the one and only right way (but he is correct most of the time ^^). With his multiple examples and detailed explanations, you won't leave Mr.Satoshi's journals without some type of improvement in grammar, or understanding of the culture ^_^. P.S. His English isn't half bad either, lol.
