QOTD #1: Respond in Japanese! 日本語で応えなさい

I thought it would be a good idea to post a question a day in Japanese, and then to have those who want to answer to answer in Japanese to practice writing. This is a test, if a majority do not want posts like these, I simply won't make them. But I believe it's worth a shot.

今日の質問は;

この世界の一番好きな物は何ですか?

このせかいのいちばんすきなものはなんですか?

What is your favorite think in/about this world?

自分の答え(My answer)

一番好きな物は言語です。

いちばんすきなものはげんごです

My favorite thing is languages.

ヤギの漢字は「山羊」だ。
それはとてもすごいね。

Yagi no kanji wa "山羊" da.
Sore wa totemo sugoi ne.

My top favorite thing is goats.
Goats are stubborn and amusing.
The kanji for goat is "山羊".
That's really great, don't you think?

応えなさい is an interesting fail. Caveat utilitor

When I tell people to start with Gboard's 4×3 layout and flick input, I conveniently gloss over the issue of learning to choose the correct homonym.

• 機能 vs. 昨日 for me because I use both dozens of times a day. My solution is to use さくじつ for the latter.

• 洋画 vs. 用賀 for Microsoft. I have never used Microsoft's choice, but lived in the latter for over a quarter of a century. Android at least learns.

• とる、撮る、取る、摂る、採る、執る、捕る、録る、獲る、穫る、etc.

• Auxiliary verbs are now always written in ひらがな, but watch out for such real-verb homophones as 上げる、挙げる、and 揚げる。Then there are things like the marriage proposal お嬢さんを下さい and the 小椋佳 song 愛を下さい.

• In the sciences, plant and animal names are supposed to be written in カタカナ. Examples include イヌ (Canis), カクレクマノミ (Nemo and her short-lived sisters), ホッキョクグマ (polar bear 白熊)

My favorite thing is action and fighting games.

Tsk. Tsk. "Favorite" twice in two adjacent sentences!

Try: My thing is action/fighting games.

A pedant (moi?) would zoom in on the failed subject-verb agreement, but I opted for a colloquial solution.

Naruto Shippuden and Skyrim is my favorite games.

No such solution here.

Try: Naruto Shippuden and Skyrim are my favorites.

==========================

That said, video games are not my bag. I play cribbage, Mexican Trains, and very rarely Kings' Corners. When not wielding a red pencil (赤ペン先生), that is.
