well i haven't taken any words from anime (and i must admit my anime experience is limited to sailor moon, poke'mon, and 2 episodes of ranma 1/2) but i do take words from other sources... the word for 'scar' is 'forde' after harrison ford (the actor... who rocks whether in space or in a fedora)... the word for evil is 'spike' after the character spike from 'buffy: the vampire slayer'... and then i use my own idiosyncrasies (for example: naming one of the bathroom stalls in my dorm 'harvey' and then using 'harvi' to mean bathroom in narethanaal)... i have also stolen several words from german, english, and polish and a lot of the time i come up with words by looking at a word in english and then rearranging the letters... and of course there's the tried and true method of stealing other people's typos :)... i've also been thinking about stealing the 'farscape' curse words... __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
