It was hot and now it is cool. I took Lynettea out for her walkies and now she says I have to help her with her Japanese homework. She has to write a few sentences to read out, but she usually can't manage it and uses something I have written.
What a life!
猫 = cat. neko
子猫 = kitten. koneko
Last year we were trying to do Chinese as well, but I think her brain is not capable of trying two languages.
猫 = cat. māo
小猫 = kitten. xiǎo māo
It is interesting how the words for cat look the same in Japanese and Chinese. The parts that add on to show 'kitten' are different.
子 = ko the Japanese for 'child'
小 = xiǎo in Chinese and means 'small'
小 = ko in Japanese and means 'small'
We thought it was interesting that a kitten in Japanese is a child cat and in Chinese is a small cat.
I am busy and my brain is whirling.
