I should like the Japanese group to learn these words for our next meeting on Sunday.

Please note that the combination "ou" is not pronounced as in "hour" actually the "u" is a sign that the "o" is lengthened. So in "doyoubi" Saturday the vowel sound in the second syllable is the same as that in the first, but twice the length. the ii and uu are also lengthened vowels.

Don't worry if this is hard to grasp, I can discuss it aloud on Sunday. If you have any questions in advance, please ask them on this thread or on the Japanese group wire on Heartbook.

Bad: warui
Long: nagai
Short: mijikai
