SCHIZO-ALIAS

Musings about Japan and life as a human, a cosplayer, a minority, a music lover, an English teacher.

Jisho.org Sentence examples

Whenever I’m working on something Japanese-related (which is all the time) I use jisho.org to look up words I don’t know. It uses the same database as the famous Jim Breen’s WWWJDIC, but the interface is more user-friendly. Every once in a while I look up example sentences for certain words and a peculiar example comes up.

The example sentence of the day is this:

米消費者団体がRealPlayerを「バッドウェアと認定している。
American consumer group identifies RealPlayer as ‘badware’.

The translations aren’t always 100% accurate; neither are the original Japanese sentences. But it’s amusing to find such examples in the dictionary, as if we would really use them in real life. Who knows, maybe someone will find themselves in a conversation with a Japanese person about RealPlayer.
