ABOUT SUGGESTED USAGE:

ん at the end gives it a more casual feel. It is a shortened form of ~NO
DESU used often after -i adjectives. takain desu (it is expensive).


だけど dakedo – however (conjuction)

では dewa – as for…
boku – I, me This is a casual male form
猫語 neko go – cat language of course, this isn’t really a word, but you can make language names by adding 語

ぺらぺら pera pera – fluent One reason Japanese is so much fun is it has so many of these fun onomatopoeia words
なんだって nandatte – (emphatic)
Keeping with the casual theme, our hero uses this to wrap up his
speech. In formal speech, this would be NA NO DA – TTE (The trailing
TTE is like a quotation mark and the first NA is the NA from the NA
adjective PERAPERANA)
