We at are
celebrating 2010 as a year of English as a language without borders. We are
interested in how English is used and adapted in different countries all around
the world; how different languages and cultures uniquely influence English so
that it no longer belongs to ‘native English language speakers’ but to the world
as a lingua franca.

We are aware that March is a month for
festivities in Japan because of the Vernal Equinox, and we thought that this
would be a great time to focus exclusively on Japan and English as it is spoken
in Japan.

In March we want to add words to our Open Dictionary
that have come to English from Japan, or English words that you have invented in
Japan or use in Japan and are not used anywhere else.

We would
be delighted if you could contribute to our blog with your ideas, thoughts, and
comments of the way English is spoken in Japan with us.  I’m sure you have a
funny story to tell connected to the English you heard being used by the

We would really appreciate if you could send us a
post to publish or comment on the ones that will appear in March at
where we will have Japanese guest bloggers posting throughout the month.

We look forward to hearing from
