Are there any rules against asking for a transcript of some Japanese lyrics?
I just need the Romaji and Kanji lyrics of a song.
EDIT: They're not anime lyrics
If anyone is interested in giving me at least the Kanji lyrics, I'd be happy. I'll translate them myself.
If you mean asking on Duolingo for translation and transcription work, it's generally frowned upon, but there's no actual rules against it. Some people will be happy to for practice, others will downvote it because it's not exactly related to language learning in their opinion. In anycase, you can. Just be mindful that they might not be perfect transcriptions.
I don't really want a translation, I want to do that myself. Even if it's just Kanji I would be happy.
Would you say the singer's accent is usual? I've listened to many Japanese songs and he pronounces words rather oddly from the way I'm used to hearing.
You should ask a native speaker, anyway more than the pronunciation I would say maybe the singing style and the overall effects, mixing and stuff in different songs might make a singer more or less understandable.
Personally I wouldn't define the pronunciation in that song 'odd'
Me as a native, their pronunciation aren’t wrong. However... hmm.... I don’t want to criticize people’s song...I am a horrible singer and not even professional musician ... I’d say... they’re just not my style...
I’m not sure what kind of song you’re looking for, however I found a very very very very old song with lyric in romaji and kanji, hiragana. The song is called 上を向いて歩こう(let’s walk with our face up) by Kyu Sakamoto, however, somehow was changed to “Sukiyaki song” when they were introduced to America.
