Another word please...
« on: April 25, 2011, 11:49:03 pm »
つぼつさ
Pretty sure this is tsubotsusa... looking up the words, it appears that tsubo used in the medical reference is a pressure point (mapped points on the body that correspond to and influence certain organs)... I went with the medical reference because it does not match in the sense of being a measurement in my opinion... and tsusa is used for proper  names...

I am pretty sure that this a some kind of restorative spell...

But, lets say for example... this is actually a weapon and I mistyped one letter, the new word would be tsubatsusa (つばつさ) which, again, if I looked it up right would make tsuba like a blade or a sword... but the tsusa I don't understand what it could mean... can anyone give me a hand?

I say that I may have the word wrong by the one letter because the game I am working on uses 1byte sjis with a modifier and while making the table, I may have goofed it up after getting to this word... however, I am pretty sure that it is indeed the first choice of tsubotsusa. Although as stated above, the part of the game I am working on right now seems to be restorative skills/spells.

If I am wrong with any part of this, please help correct me as I am still learning Japanese and would rather be corrected rather than learn it wrong...

If you can find it in-game and screencap it, it'd be helpful. Double-check your table file, too.

Try reading it backwards. That'll give you さつぼつ, which is probably 殺歿. The characters in this word mean 'kill' and 'death'. You said that it's likely a restorative spell, so my guess is that this spell reverses death, which is why it's backward
