Response to Real Japanese?
|We obviously don't deal with sarcasm very well...|
The basics of Kansai ben are easy enough, it's the occasional use of obscure slang and phrases that aren't so easily deciphered that I'm alluding to. And I say 'real Japanese' in the sense of standard Japanese. Once again, sarcasm. And personally, I think the Tokyo dialect is cooler. Maybe that comes from living in Tokyo- Kansai ben there is laughed at and looked at as being 'country'. It may be older but it's no longer dominant.
Keep the faith...
