English Blog

This post is about “Learning of Japanese language “.
I’m not a native English speaker.
I’m learning English now.
And I’m sorry if there are any grammatical mistakes.
Or please let me know on twitter or instagram ,if my English is something wrong. That’s really helpful for me.
You teach me English and I teach you Japanese.
How is about that?

Okay! Let’s get down to the main topic.

Here we go 🐈

Mondegreen of Japanese

ぎなた読み=Ginata yomi
Translated literally:Ginata reading

Ginata reading is the reading of words in Japanese with the wrong word breaks.
Sounds of sentence is very similar. Sounds almost same.
But that makes sentence meaning difference.

And, to read this text, it might need more than basic level of Japanese.Thank you.
