Just a quick cool kanji for today. Can you figure it out what it means based on the radicals alone? Check after the break to see if you are right.
言 means speak, and 化 means change. Together they are read as – have you figured it out yet? – なまり: accent or dialect. Very cool – speaking changes; voilà, accent. This can also be used as a verb – most oftenly, 訛っている. Your goal as a non-native student of the Japanese language should be to achieve ちょっとだけ訛っている status.
