I'm hitchhiking around Asia, learning bits of the languages on the road as needed.

I'm now in Kagoshima after over a month in Okinawa.

comment Is there a “right” or “best” way to write this Okinawan expression for “cheers”?
I'm not looking for a kanji for "sabira". I'm just looking for how best to write "karii sabira" these days out of the forms I've found or any other I don't know about. Of my three books on, in, or about Ryukyuan, they all vary but they're from different eras. I don't know if the speech community has a current preference today in 2014.

At least a couple of the 盃 looked very much like the short stubby cylinder shaped お猪口 but still were labelled 盃. Photography wasn't allowed and I couldn't find pictures of the exhibition online unfortunately.

comment Are ~つ and ~り the only two counters that can occur with the native Japanese numbers (ひと~, ふた~, etc)?
Yes I think true counters would have to be fairly consistently used over more than just one or two set phrases to qualify.

comment How do I say “before” or “used to” in Japanese?
It's complicated in English too! It's colloquial only and people don't agree on whether it should be "didn't used to" or "didn't use to", or different wordings altogether.
