I'm not an expert on this so take my answer with a grain of salt but my Japanese teacher callled Hello Kitty, Kitty chan and when I told her about my dog she always asked me "how is Priya chan?"

Based on the descriptions I'd imagine they find it much harder to function than their equivalents who use languages where such distictions are relatively minimal (like English).

Koko wrote:The very last two lines, am I right in saying they read (in hiragana (some kanji I know), so I don't have to add spaces)?:
I can't read kanji And I really can't even begin to figure out whether it's ragae, garae, gagae, or what. I just know it ends with an e.
Koko wrote:Another question for the same song: what does the kanji at 3:54-4:04 read? And is it possible that it is the same as the conlang[*] beside it?
I think the first line says: 辛いらな忘れてほしい。
Which then would translate to something like "I want to forget if it it hurts"?? I'm not sure what the 〜なら means. Wordreference was little help. I do recognize the "kimi o" of the next line, and after that, a kanji i don't recognize and "付けるだけの."
[*] I really want to know what it is. It looks so interesting and I won't believe it isn't a conlang
