    Language Question Empty Language Question

    Post by Co10Broek Mon Jul 15, 2013 10:11 pm

    So I've finally started reading Daigo Sensei's Kodokan Throwing Techniques.
    So far I'm learning a great deal. I am stumbling over one nitpicky word.  Each technique has several subdivisions which start with the word "Sono" followed by what ever number it is.
    What is the appropriate translation for "Sono?"
    From the context at first I thought it was variation. But toward the end of the techniques I've read so far there are notes about the history of the technique.  So would a better translation be "point" or "item"?

    Thanks,
    Co tenBroek

    I too would be interested in the exact translation. That said, I took sono to mean 'that' variation or the variation "closest to that' example....

    Not seeing the context, I'll keep it general.

    kono x = this x (thing, object, whatever) close at hand
    sono x = that x "  " over there, away from me but close to you
    ano x = that x "    " way far over there / far from both of us

    In the context of such a text, it usually goes something like:
    Technique A
    Modifications
    - Mod 1 (That is, #1 / Sono 1....)
    - Mod 2 (That is, #2 / Sono 2...)

    that make sense?

    So then ... the original Kono was the loco boy closest at hand?

    And ... just personally Miss Park suits my aesthetic sense better ... to cast a vaguely Asian/Polynesian actor in LA, a Korean is usually the closest at hand?

    Yeah, McGarrett never said "book 'em Kono" ... which is probably why they both quit.

    A few simple Japanese sentences:



    Look for a similar (longer) videoclip by the same person on the YouTube page. Forum rules do not allow me to link that one.
