don't blame abbreviations.

watamote isn't an abbreviation

wata means disgusting in japanese, and mote means girl, so it's just the japanese title for Disgusting Girl Manga (ft. Disgusting Girl)


not...in any Japanese I've ever learned or used?

also I appreciate these abbreviations because they allow me to refer to the anime about Kirino as "my potato." (imo means potato)


lmao lemme guess you're learning japanese at a state school xD

It doesn't matter if it's a cultural thing. It's a cultural abomination and bako's right about it.


"Cultural", huh

That second article's title is certainly and abomination. The plural or 'portmanteau' is 'portmanteaux', not 'portmanteaus'.

Whether they mean what you claim they do or not (of which I have my doubts; you're gonna have to provide some evidence if you want to be believed), it is nevertheless an abbreviation (or rather a portmanteau) of 'watashi' and 'motenai'.

I like how you sidestep the fact that English speakers also use their own portmanteaux.

And where were you people when Pokemon first aired? I don't see anyone complaining that it's a portmanteau for Pocket Monster.

I'm surprised at the responses of board regulars to Bako and Feeny.

That's because I agree with you, so I didn't think there was any point in mentioning it.
