[Japanese Language Material] NicoNico Net Talk And Slang #1

Hi everyone, I was reading up on one of my favorite Japanese blog teachers, Maggie-sensei http://www.maggiesensei.com and I came across an article she did on Japanese slang スラングand net talkネットの会話.  Since most of the time, your studying proper Japanese and vocabulary, I thought it was be interesting to see what real Japanese are using across the net.  It’s probably not going to be stuff you use in talking, it’s kind of like saying lol, rofl, gtg, cya, wtf, wth but normally Japanese.

Maggie sensei has lots of great Japanese examples like for instance

“So today’s main slang verb is ググる = ぐぐる = guguru.  It means “to google” or “to search for something on Google”

Ex. そんなこと自分でググったら?
= Sonna koto jibun de guguttara?
= Why don’t you google it yourself?

Ex. この言葉の意味がわからなかったからググってみた。
= Kono kotoba no imi ga wakaranakatta node gugutte mita.
= I didn’t know the meaning of the word so I googled it and checked the meaning.”


Please check her out!! You will learn a lot.  みんなさんにマッギ先生の歩ロゴをぜひ見てください。たくさん面白いことがあってただの教科書が書いたの物じゃなくて色々が学べると思います。

Below is the reference sheet for NicoNico and popular net slang.  NicoNico is like Japanese Youtube but with interactive scrolling comments on the screen and live videos.

I’d go into detail on each one, but I’m not too familiar with them, so when I go on NicoNico I will go check for them and use this as a reference.
