Translation:I will put food in my mouth.
それから何回も（なんかいも）噛む（かむ）。そのあと飲み込む（のみこむ）And then I chew however many times. After that, I swallow.
Good to see that I'm not the only one who immediately thought of this! I have that image of Martha Stewart "eating" the turkey stuck in my head now...
Is kuchi really pronounced like this, with almost no vowel after k? k'chi? I ask becaude 入口 (いりぐち) does seem to have a pronounced vowel after the g.
Yes. "Some Japanese vowels (mainly i. u) often devoiced when they are between voiceless consonants. " http://japanese-correction.com/jcc-learningtips-listeningandspeaking_01whisperedvowels.html People learning martial arts often have trouble pronouncing "突き" saying "つうき" instead to "つき." "The second syllable is accented, with Japanese's unvoiced vowels making it pronounced almost like "ski" (but preceded by a "t" sound)." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsuki
Never underestimate the internet... NEVER. Two examples: lol, an entire video of someone silently eating dinner and this blog name haha
Same here. Worst scenario is when you end up with similar words which trick you, like "food" and "foot" or "bag" and "buy"...
Duo is less of a rote memorization "phrase book" and more of a way to learn the grammar and vocabulary to make your own sentences.
Exactly. This is why the silly sentences are both fun and useful. They make us smile and also help us remember them by standing out. Remembering any sentence can be helpful in properly constructing any other, or even just recalling word meanings. I'm a huge fan of the silly phrases. :)
