J'accepte les réponses rédigées en français, anglais et japonais.
I accept answers in English, Japanese and French.
日本語、フランス語や英語での答えを認めます。

  • I write in British English, so, if you correct my messages, please stick to it (e.g., colour/color, kerb/curb, flat/apartment, marmite/vegemite).
  • J'écris principalement en français de France (avec une orthographe non-simplifiée de préférence), mais il m'arrive d'y mélanger du français du Québec.
  • 主に標準語で書くんだけど、なかなか流暢に使える東北弁でも書くことがある。んだげんともほどんど通ずねぇがら、使わねごとにすっぺちゃ!

comment Why do children call themselves by their name?
@Chris: yes, I think it's very common. For girls, I think you mostly use the child's name, or お嬢ちゃん (ojouchan).

comment Why do children call themselves by their name?
Also, it's common to call a young boy as "boku (僕)." In the end, he associates "boku" like his name with himself, and ends up saying it to mean "I".

comment The plural 等 in おいら, おら
Tohoku's "ora" is singular, and written 俺 in kanji. I don't know why you think it's plural. Moreover, I don't see why you post Yoshi Ikuzo's picture either: he song "おら東京さ行ぐだ" is about a single person, not a group. FWIW, all my Tohoku-ben speaking friends and I say "おらたち" (or rather, おらたづ) when using plural.

comment Describing aptronyms (names that fit their owner)
I do not wish to make my name public, but it is an aptonym related of a feat of my body (in French). Other common examples you can find in French communities are tall people named "Legrand" (i.e, Mr. Tall), or "Petit" (ie, "Small").
