Whole text box:
she's talking about making cakes, BTW. I kinda get what she means, just want to make sure.

That would be 強引 -- forceful, coercive.
And yet another one: I seem to hate katakana. Why are they written in kata if they have kanji?
and also.... how does this translate? it's not katakana. kinda.
What's the "dokoroka" mean? it sounds like... 'place'.

One of the functions of katakana is to emphasize text. So a word normally written in kanji might be written in katakana for emphasis.Quote:
You can use a dictionary for something like this.Quote:
もたもた (adv,n,vs) (on-mim) inefficient; slow
モタモタしない -- something like "get moving"
Again, use a dictionary.Quote:
所か; 処か 【どころか】 (suf) (1) (uk) far from; anything but; not at all; (2) let alone; to say nothing of; not to speak of; much less
So w/o additional context, this is probably something like "anything but forceful".
Make a cute face, have a cute expression on the face.Quote:
Thanks. i knew what the last two meant. XD that was the context for the first.
i dont own a japanese dictionary. >_< it'd probably help.
You don't need to own a dictionary. I've been using http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/c...wwwjdic.cgi?1C so far.
