Japanese Buzzwords 2007 - 12-10-2007, 08:40 AM

I thought Japanese speakers and learners might be interested in the "Japanese Buzzwords of 2007"

These are new words and phrases that entered the Japanese lexicon this year.

The link is from Pink Tentacle, and has explanations of the nominees and winners (announced last week) in English.

I had heard どんだけぇ~ even in the US, but wasn't sure of the "correct usage".

The interview with comedian Yoshio Kojima after he's catchphrase そんなの関係ねぇ won was funny because every answer to the reporter's questions was "そんなの関係ねぇ", but said thoughtfully.
