Default Basic Japanese phrases- English speakers playing jLunia(Incomplete)

If this is in the wrong section, I apologize, and ask that one of the mods please move this into the respectable section.

Alright, so many of gLunians have migrated to jLunia, obviously since we have not been updated in a long time and they are bored of gLunia for some reason.

This is a simple guide of basic Japanese phrases(for you English speakers) you can use to help communicate with your fellow, fluent jLunians.

First and foremost: You MUST have your regional language in Japanese(reference:http://www.mylunia.net/forum/showthread.php?t=11198), otherwise you will just type random crap symbols, the party titles will be in random crap symbols, the Japanese IN party chat will be random crap symbols(you will be able to see written Japanese outside of party chat), and importantly you will keep receiving the notorious and annoying "User Error" message; which, consequently, also won't allow you to load the stage with other players if you are not the leader. Oh, and you will get "Fatal Error" 99% of the time, since the party list is not compatible with English.

Optional: You can type this using the Japanese IME if you want, it is not required.

Note: This guide will be changed updated time to time with any new phrases provided by you guys, and by my friend when she tells me any new phrases important enough.
__________________________________________________ ___________________________

It does not matter if you type this in Romanji or Hiragana.
Legend: English: Romanji- Hiragana

Basic Phrases:

Hi/Hello or any variation of "hello" greetings: yoroshiku/yorodesu/yoro- よろしく/よろです/よろ

Good morning: ohayou(informal)- おはよう, ohayou gozaimasu(formal)- おはようございます

Good afternoon: konichiwa- こにちわ, konnichiha(more accurate)- こんいちは

Good evening: konbanwa- こんばんわ (Note: It is best not to use this, as you will mostly play during afternoon/evening which is morning/afternoon for them. Only use this phrase during the respective time.)

Congratulations: omedetou- おめでとう

I am sorry: gomenasai-ごめなさい

No: iie- いいえ

Yes: hai-はい

Please: onegai- おねがい

Thank you: arigatou- ありがとう

You are welcome(formal): douitashimashite- どういたしまして, ieie(informal)- いえいえ

Sorry, I don't speak Japanese: nihongo ga wakarimasen- にほんごがわかりません,

I can't speak Japanese: nihongo ga dekimasen- にほんごができません

Can you speak English?(question): eigo wo hanasemasu ka?

Can you speak English(request;with the connotation that it's as a favor to you.): eigo wo tsukatte kuremasen ka?- えいごをつかってくれませんか?

Please speak in English: eigo de hanashite kudasai- えいごではなしてください

May I speak English(Not usually used, but just incase they don't want you to and decide to kick you out of the party): eigo wo hanashite mo ii desu ka?- えいごをはなしてもいいですか, eigo wo tsukatte mo ii desu ka?- えいごをつかってもいいですか?

Thanks for the hard work/Thank you for your efforts: otsukaresama deshita-おつかれさまでして

[Thanks for saving me(Good to use at an Eir): tasukete kurete arigatou- たすけてくれてありがとう]-Confirmation please.

I do not know: shirimasen- しりません

I do not understand: wakaranai-わからない, wakarimasen- わかりません

I see: souka-そうか

Excuse me: suimasen-すいません, sumimasen- すみません

Laugh out loud "Lol": "w" or warau- w, わらう

I have a favor: ano, chotto onegai ga aru kedo- あの、ちょっとおねがいがあるけど

Wait: chotto matte- ちょっと まって

Nihongo ga dekimasen can suffice for "I can't speak Japanese" 日本語が出来ません。

I don't know - 知りません - shirimasen

I don't understand - 分かりません - wakarimasen

Can you speak English (question) - 英語を話せますか? eigo wo hanasemasu ka?

Can you speak English (request) - 英語を使ってくれませんか? eigo wo tsukatte kuremasen ka?

or

英語で話してください - eigo de hanashite kudasai

thanks for the hard work/thank you for your efforts - お疲れ様でした - otsukaresama deshita

you're welcome (informal) - いえいえ - ieie (kind of like "it's nothing" or "no prob" in English or "de nada" in Spanish

I've got a favor... - あの、ちょっとおねがいがあるけど。。。 - ano, chotto onegai ga aru kedo...

"lol" is indeed "w", which is short for warau (わらう/笑う) which means "to laugh".

Since your guide seems to use more polite language (-masu instead of just plain form) I suggested wakarimasen in place of wakaranai.

As for the others, they're...more accurate.

"eigo wo hanashite moiideshite" is a request form as in "May I...". In this case, you're asking "May I speak English?" and should be "Eigo wo hanashite mo ii desu ka?" or "Eigo wo tsukatte mo ii desu ka?".

The ones I listed:

Eigo wo tsukatte kuremasen ka? - Could you use English? (with the connotation that it's as a favor to you.)

Eigo de hanashite kudasai. - Please speak in English.

Either works and both are correct.

Edit: Kind of like how gomenasai (ごめなさい) can also be gomennasai (ごめんなさい) or konichiwa (こにちわ) can be konnichiha (こんにちは). For the record, as far as konnichiwa goes, the second way is more accurate.

Not sure if these would help, or if they are right but...

(noun) ... ga nai - ... がない - No (noun), I have no (noun)
(verb) ... ja nai - ...じゃない - Makes verbs negative. (Not nouning.)
betsu ni - べつに - Nothing
mataku - またけ - I think it's an expression of indifference, but my brother says it means "Indeed". So either whatever or indeed.
thankisu - テャンキエス - my brother said it's a cute-ish way of saying "thanks". In English we'd pronounce it "thankies". Not sure if thats appropriate or not.
nani? - 何? - what? (Type "nani" then press the spacebar once.)
doushite nano? - どうしてなの? - what are you doing?
doushite? - どうして? - why?
ano - あの - This equates to an "um" in English.

Well again, I'm not 100% sure on the accuracy of some of these... (ㅇㅅ ㅇ ) /

Well...a lot of the above depends largely on context and can't be used generally but...

-ja nai specifically is incorrect. To make a verb negative, it must be conjugated and I'm not about to explain how to conjugate each type of verb. Here's an example though.

Iku (行く) - to go
Ikanai (行かない) - to not go

As you can see, -ja nai is nowhere in there.

betsu ni - 別に is short for betsu ni nandemo nai which means "nothing, really". Specifically, the "nothing" part comes from "nandemo nai".
ex:
P1: 何してるの?(nani shiteru no?) "What are you doing?"
P2: 別に何でもない。(betsu ni nandemo nai) "Nothing, really."

まったく (mattaku) is more like saying, "Geez."
ex. まったく、まだやるの?(mattaku, mada yaru no?) "Geez, you're still at it?"

The "cutish" way to say thanks is サンキュー or sankyuu. Maybe サンクス or sankusu. It's not really cutish, it's more like...literal. They're trying to say "thanks" in English. A very informal way to say thanks would be あり (ari), short for ありがとう (arigatou).

"Doushite nano" is more like..."why's that?". "What are you doing?" is ”何しているんですか?" (nani shite irun desu ka?) or a more informal way "何してるの?" (nani shiteru no?).

You can also use "naze" (なぜ) for "why".

That is correct. I really doubt you can type this if you're desperately in need of help, but you can use 助けて or 助けてくれ (tasukete, tasukete kure) to request for help. It literally means "save me!".

If you simply want to ask for help, you can say "ちょっと手伝ってくれないか?" (chotto tetsudatte kurenai ka?), used if you need help on a particular stage or something.

Edit: With the Japanese language, a lot of what you're saying is in context or implied. Some of the things you say will have a masculine connotation, others, not so much. You'll never hear a badass use "no" at the end of a sentence (like the in above example, "nani shiteru no?" for example.

ちょっと まって would be "hold on" or "wait".
