|shiho-chan||Im not sure if it matters but, maybe it should noted that this is often shortened to ったら|| |
|kadoka66||Hmm to make one of the usages of this grammar item a little more understandable there is a Japanese drinking game which I often play with friends.|
It goes like this:
What would you think of if I said ??
It's a bit like Mallets Mallet for those of you who are familiar with the British 80's Morning show.
|tigert||[#6329] is the strangest japanese I have every seen. これを見たときの私の驚きといったら??? say what? |
When I saw that, to say I was suprised is insufficent.
|seanohagan||The example sentences are a bit confusing. The first two make sense given the meaning above "how +adj". But the rest of the examples seem to be a different usage. Am I wrong?|| |
|nay||No, I agree. "to ittara" is used in a "to ieba" sense in all the other examples. I know that's common for "ttara" (which is a contraction of "to ittara"), but I'm not sure myself how to distinguish these obviously two meanings properly.|
Maybe a native speaker can help us out.
|karekano||#6333 and #6337 are both the same thing, right?|| |
