I bought an iTouch the other day, and stumbled on some stuff while transferring a few gigabytes of music to my new music player - the whole "DaYoNe" collection. Basically the same goofy J-Rap song done in seven different regional dialects. I'll have them up for a limited time, so get them while they're hot:

DA YO NE (Standard Japanese)
DA BE SA (Hokkaido)
DA CHA NE (Sendai)
DA GA NE (Nagoya)
SO YA NA (Osaka)
HO JA NE (Hiroshima)
SO TA I (Fukuoka)

Osaka and all points West are no problem for me to understand, but Sendai might as well be another language altogether...

I'm taking these down tomorrow, so if anyone else wants 'em, now is your last chance.

When I visited a place near Sendai and heard peoople talking it, I thought it was another language, until I heard various people talking it.

My wife is from Sendai, and it's funny to hear her slip back into the dialect when we're visiting. I still can't understand my mother-in-law half the time. My wife's theory is that Sendai-ben sounds the way it does is because of the chilly climate: cold faces lead to a lack of enunciation. Wink

My wife is from Tochigi. I don't know if it is a dialect or just a local accent but apparently the Tochigi accent is equated to being country bumpkins.

You can say that about any location not named "Tokyo" or "Osaka". Hell, Nagoya's a city of 3 million and I might as well have been studying in Alabama, with the thick accent I picked up.

Last summer when I was back in the Kanto for a bit, several coworkers commented on my Kyushu lilt. I don't see it, but 2 years in Kumamoto will warp you.

I've been listening to Kumamoto dialect for the past 8 months or so, but having learned Japanese in Nagasaki, and having spent quite a while in Oita, it sounds "normal", although not even remotely as "clean" as Tokyo.

There's an overall Kyushu dialect, as much of what one would say in Kumamoto is the same as what one would say in Hakata, etc. There are of course differences, but the intonation, timing, etc., is mostly the same, as are some of the key phrases that pop up (~~ばい, for example.) The outlier is definitely Kagoshima--no one understands them.

If you've still got these, I'm definitely interested.

Heck, at the time it seemed to me that no one had downloaded any of them Just Kidding I'll try to put them up over the weekend - I'll drop a line here when I put them back up. But if I remember correctly, you must have been in Japan when these were going around back in the early-mid 90's like I was.

Ok - the mp3s are up again for a limited time only, grab the Ipods and load up, and feel free to comment.

And 'domer should recognize this from the good old days.

Can you leave them up through the weekend? I'm on the road without net access from my own computer. Should be back Thurs/Fri-ish.
