    Default Japanese Grammar Question

    Hi, I am trying to teach myself Japanese using various webites, and there is one question I have in regards to Kanji. When the Kanji is like below:



    What does it mean? Does it have different meanings or different accents? Or what? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    hmm. thats a trick one. Its a katakana "ma" over the kanji for man.

    I vaguely remember Yuu being hot water, but I could be very very wrong. This is purely speculation.

    Its ok, I just put some random one. I just want to know what it means when it has the extra characters on the side (either to the right, top or bottom I have seen. I am trying to teach myself Japanese, so I can attempt to translate things, but I want to make sure I am not barking up the wrong tree and seriously screw things up.

    i didn't want to start a new thread for something somewhat similar.

    i was wondering if any of you speak french and could tell me what "d'spoir" means? i've tried translators but i guess it may be slang or something.

    I took a bit of french in high school, but try spoir by itself. D' is de most likely which mean of. Let me check it out a bit.

    lol. The word spoir doesn't exist. "Désespoir" means desperation/despair; unless he meant "d'espoir" which mean "of hope". I am assuming the word is désespoir because it's sounds the same but if you give me the sentance I could translate it for you.
