- Mar 9 9:16 AMFolks, I'm as much of a geek as anyone, and sure enough I've learned a
wonderful new word ("morae"), but this is a beginner; let's not give
the impression that it requires a degree in linguistics to learn to
pronounce Japanese adequately.
One other thing I didn't mention, by the way --- doubled consonants.
Watch out for words like "seppuku". There's a distinction between a
single and double consonant -- "se pu ku" sounds differently than "sep
pu ku". To my ear, it sounds like a tiny hesitation between the first
and second "p".
