@broccoliforest Thanks for your suggestion. Is there any offline version dictionary? Not a software. I'm using Goldendict. (hope can be a format that Goldendict supported). Thanks in advance.

"let" is a verb, but "don't let's" still sounds strange to me.

Q: Watashi versus Wataxi, are they different accents?

BlaisemI've noticed after watching a lot of anime that sometimes "Watashi wa" sounds like "Wataxi wa" or maybe "Watakshi wa." The instances I've heard the latter were always from females.

The Nippo Jisho Japanese: 日葡辞書, literally the "Japanese–Portuguese Dictionary") or Vocabvlario da Lingoa de Iapam (Vocabulário da Língua do Japão in modern Portuguese, translating in English as "Vocabulary of the Language of Japan") was a Japanese to Portuguese dictionary compiled by Jesuit missionaries and published in Nagasaki, Japan, in 1603.

Q: I'm stuck on Step 70 of HOJYO Takashi's Buddha... what does the diagram mean?

Here is the image of the text if it helps

ahh...
I can read but I don't know much about origami
anyway it reads
"roll up a layer and cover up opposite side with it so that visualize thumb's muscle"?
