in japanese cartoons or anime or whatever how in the fuck is "kekekekekekke" supposed to represent the sound that someone makes when laughing?

i dunno, but i think it is interesting how different languages represent natural and animal sounds. i mean, essentially the sound a rooster or a dog makes is the same around the world, but depending on the language you are speaking it is represented differently.

example:
english rooster: cock-a-doodle-do
french rooster: krak-a-karou (something like that, french immersion was a long time ago)

the semiotics course i took in first year only lightly brushed on this but if i remember correctly, the description of the sound is an iconic representation of what it is, but that will always be heavily influenced by cultural connotation.

Ok, deep-
let me answer the question for ya.

well, "kekeke" represents the sound of laughter
-when one is being silly about the fact the person/i is laughing..
-when the laughter is supposed to be a *sneaky giggle*

in English language,
it seems *hehe* does the same to how people use
*kekeke* in Japanese language..

In Japan, *hehe* sounds more absurd and weird
just like how you feel about *kekeke* being used in Japanese language..


But that does not mean that people
go ahead and use this express of laughing *kekeke* openly in public..

online, we just use this chinese character meaning laugh..so
we would do this: (laugh)

and that supposed to mean *hehehe* or laughing or whatever you do in the cyber world..

so that *kekeke* seems to be only found in the comin world..

it is the language of otaku..geeky maniac..

hope this clears your mind, deep.

btw, ask skebe jijii to answer this question..
;)

peace

not that japanese hear differently than the rest of human, but
the sound of dogs is: wan wan..like one one in Japanese...
the sound of cat is: mya~ mya~..like mia mia ..
the sound of frog is: kero kero like those kero kero keroppi shite.
the sound of little birdie is: chun chun..

when i started learning english, i used to play with
children..so that i would be speaking non-sense and
they would be too..lol

but what i learned from them was how
some of the animals cry (sound) differently in english language..

afterall, that was not a silly thing for me to do i think..lol

Yes. Might have been Owl or Cheekadee though, who knows, as long as Dr. Zed and his wacky, yet fun, experiments are there, I'm in.

Speaking of wacky laughs, my dentist goes (I shit you not, this is the exact sound) "tock tock tock tock tock"

What the sweet merciful fuck is that? Do you know how hard it is to resist the urge to just bite down on his hand and scream at him to laugh normally?

Has anyone else heard shit like this?
