Happy New Year, everybody! In honor of it being 2008 now and one of my resolutions being to write more, here is a short essay I banged out about how awesome a language Japanese is for screwing around with people!

-

Japanese is a fascinating and sometimes alarming language, because the verb always comes at the end of the sentence. You putter along making the setup, with subjects and objects and adjectives and adverbs and so forth, but you don't have to actually tell anybody what you did with all these things until the end. If it's a particularly long, involved sentence, you can get a lot of suspense going this way... )
