It's basically a way of ending a sentence.
Kinda.. In naruto's case it's a really hypur n' cocky way of ending it..

Like Kakashi talks with...well I can't remember what it's called in Japanese, but it's like an accent.

You mean the "Ma" he adds at the beginning of most sentences? :)

O thanks, but isn't it kind of a long way to end a sentence?? Just a thought then again i don't know much about the langue.

Maybe. *shrug* It might seem long to someone who doesn't know the language or even to someone who knows the language but is not used to saying it. However, I guess if you're used to it, to saying a favorite expression, I don't think it matters how long it is anymore. you just say it whenever you feel like saying it or it automatically slips out. ;)

It's like "you know what I'm saying"
I think konohamaru also says something like that.. "dakore" or something

Yeah I just recently realized that Konohamaru says that "kore" stuff at the end of like each and every sentence he says. Though, in Konohamaru's style, that "kore" stuff just annoys me. :mad: Whereas naruto's dattebayo - well, it's not that distracting, i think.

it depends on where the people are from and who they grew up with... in japanese you have to use different verbs for different uses of the sentence, like "arimasu" is used at teh end of a sentence as an "existence verb", and as for kakashi, its either ma or mo, i think i remember it being mo because taht is how you connect two sentences together to make a long one. point is theres different words for the same meaning but it just depends on where you were brought up.

Oops so yeah maybe it's "mo" and I just didnt hear it that way.. :o thanks, issuedman. :D

haha... no problem, the only reason i knew that is because my japanese teacher yelled at me when i used a different letter to add the sentences together. he said it was too imformal or something. eh oh well.

Um.. good for you! (I think, hehehe) But I find spanish easier to understand than japanese. (I live in a country that was once colonized by Spain for many a hundred years so we also have a lot of spanish words) Maybe it's because Im used to the english style or syntax (e.g. Subject-Verb-object, etc, etc) and jap's, like, subject-object-verb, so it tends to be confusing.... :o

yeah japanese syntax is kinda confusing. -_-' but it's pretty easy to pronounce or read.

i never even knew that kakashi has an "accent" hm...maybe i'll try to take notice next time.
