Planning a Forest Visit

Saturday, June 14th, 2008

Wow, talk about biting off more than I could chew here! If I took a smaller portion, I would have had this complete many months ago Because of the sheer amount of time and effort I put into it, I ended up slacking off most for a few months, so I’m going to post it as-is, even though it’s incomplete. I’ll use much smaller portions from now on. Otherwise, I’ll make no progress in learning new words.


General Speech Patterns in Cardcaptor Sakura

Sunday, February 24th, 2008

I’ll be (slowly) doing a series of posts on dialogue translation, using Cardcaptor Sakura as the material. Whether or not I can make it through all 70 episodes, I don’t know, but I imagine many things will come up again and again, and I’ll eventually give those their own pages. In the meantime, I’ll be setting this page aside for character mannerisms and repeated speech patterns.
