English to Japanese Translation
ranks as one of the world's most important languages with over 128 million speakers in Japan and in Japanese
emigrant communities. There has been a great surge of interest in the study of Japanese
as a second language throughout the past 30 years, due to the Western world's fascination with Japanese
culture, as well as to Japan's status as a world economic power. Japanese
is a member of the Japonic language family. It is an agglutinative language. It is distinguished by a complex system reflecting the nature of Japanese
society, with verb forms and particular vocabulary to indicate the relative status of the speaker, the listener, and persons mentioned in conversation.
The English language
was first introduced to the Americas by British colonization, beginning in the early 17th century. Similarly, the language spread to numerous other parts of the world as a result of British trade and colonization elsewhere and the spread of the former British Empire.
Over the past 400 years, the form of the language used in the Americas, especially in the United States, and that used in the United Kingdom have diverged, leading to the dialects now occasionally referred to as American English
and British English. Differences between the two include pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary
, spelling, punctuation, idioms, formatting of dates and numbers, and so on, although the differences in written and most spoken grammar structure tend to be much more minor than those of other aspects of the language in terms of mutual intelligibility.
