    Kun and Chan are Japanese yea.

    Korean has things like -Yo which goes at the end of a verb.
    Similar things for nouns, different versions of them for different occasions, and sometimes they change the previous letters.
    Think theres some others too, been a while since I was trying to teach my self korean xD but I think there's some for the ends of sentences as well.

    One example "Ha" means "Do" but if you add the honorific "yo", which you would do unless talking to a close friend, it becomes "Haeyo" but "Sa" which means buy just becomes "Sayo"

    Well, I guess Korean is kinda more complicated then. I always liked the honorifics like -chan and stuff like that, after a person's name, but I had no idea people used it for more than just names.

    But it's still nice I think, atleast for me since my language, and probably a lot more languages, don't have these kind of honorifics. I mean we do, but it's only like Mr., Miss, and stuff like that, but meh.

    In terms of honorifics Korean has more to it I think than Japanese, but overall Japanese is way way way more complicated than Korean. Korean was changed a few hundred years ago by one of their kings for the specific intention of making it easier for his citizens to learn
    So although there's more honorifics, the rules for them are quite simple. Where as Japanese has all that kanji and shinji and Chinese symbols that scare me.

    The only thing form Chinese, Japanese and pretty much all related to them, is the symbols. I mean, what the hell do they mean? Also, do people actually write those on papers like if it was nothing? Like, "piece of cake I do it every day." I'm still wondering that.

    I know, some of their symbols are insane!
    Korea doesn't use them though, korean is mostly straight lines and circles

    They also use an alphabet. (Each symbol represents a single sound) There are only like 24 symbols compared to the thousands of Japanese ones (well maybe it's not thousands, but it's a lot )

    I like straight lines and circles.

    Also, I'm done on my new avatar and signature, I don't know if they are crappy or not, only when I put them here will I be able to see if they are or aren't.

    Well, they are a lot indeed, I don't even understand how people can decorate all those symbols. xD

    Yay Dyra, I also just got home

    No more studies today. Nop. 8-17 is clearly enough. Got done with the most stressing project too which had to be in by this friday, so I'm basically deadline-free up until 2 weeks where my first real exam is. Aka I'm walking towards my doom.

    Question, do you count both negatives and positives for your score?

    No, don't try it out on LFR, if you do, all the bosses will poop on your raid Dars, you do not want that.

    I don't, thank god. I don't because Pyr was just putting the number whether it was negative or positive. Thank you Pyr!

    Otherwise I would be doomed, Anak. I would be stuck with this sig and avatar for a long time, it's not easy to get the negative numbers.
