dillo_dillo Posted March 20, 2008 Share Posted March 20, 2008 I thought how do you say"Yattaaaa!" in your language when I 've seen "HEROS" I think It's "I did it" probably the literal translation of a English term. but "Yattaaa!" is more emotional word.... not a word ... neary "shout" or "emit a cry" types word... like "Woo-Hoo!" "Oh Yeah!" type. It's not "Onomatopoeia" but I think close. (Lot's of sound-words in Japan. It's easy to see If you see Japanese comics-Manga) How do you say "Yattaaaa!" in your word/language? sample of Onomatopoeia [ Dogs' barks ] Japanese・・・wan-wan English・・・bow-wow, bark-bark, woof-woof, arf-arf Chinese・・・wang-wang ・・・wau-wau ・・・ouaf ・・・guau-guau ・・・baruw-baruw ・・・bau-bau ・・・baggo-baggo ・・・hau-hau ・・・gaf-gaf ・・・mon-mon ・・・bhu-bhu ・・・wob-wob ・・・gon-gon ・・・ang-ang ・・・hav-hav ・・・hao-hao ・・・baw-gaw Onomatopoeia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onomatopoeia Japanese sound symbolism http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_sound_symbolism Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
