Hey, Japanese Speakers!

(1/2) > >>

how the hell do you pronounce the ssh in something like 'itterasshai'?

I could probably just pick an episode of slice of life anime and hear it a dozen times, but I know a bunch of you are familiar enough with the language to save me the trouble. So thanks in advance.


EDIT: Nevermind, just go here and click the speaker:,or.r_cp.&bvm=bv.115339255,d.dmo&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&client=tw-ob#auto/en/%E3%81%84%E3%81%A3%E3%81%A6%E3%82%89%E3%81%97%E3%82%83%E3%81%84

EDIT2: "itterashai" in English is "Bon Voyage" according to Google...

Towns Car Marty:
damn, google

Guys, he's asking for pronunciation, not translation. 

Anyway, I pronounce the "ssh" part of itterasshai like "shh" (when you're shushing someone) but more staccato- where the sound is more sharply detached.

Thanks, Din!

That was my confusion. Wasn't sure if it was pronounced with a double-s sound and then "hai" or if the sh sound was indeed correct.
