Exclamation Japanese Terms or Glossary?

Hi Everyone!! I was wondering if any of you know where I can find a glossary of japanese terms? I am making a fanfiction site (hint hint) and am going to put up some terms. Any info would be greatly appreciated. ^__^

Try going here http://linear.mv.com/cgi-bin/j-e/dict it translates to English words to Japenese and vise versa. That might help you out a bit.

If you go to www.savergen.com/onldict/jap.html you can get single words but don't do phrases. It won't work, I tried once and never again.

Chin chin atama...::shakes her head:: How immature are you? That's not right. Schmuck.

"Ogenki desu ka?" Or "Genki ka?" or just..."Genki?" would be "How are you?"

Dopefish....::smacks his knuckles with the ruler:: See me after class. I want you to write, "I will not dupe people into using obscenities," on the board 500 times...

'ki' (a.k.a 'chi') means energy

genki means health/healthy.

"Ogenki desu ka?" basically means "are you well/good?"
so in other words, "How are you"

how about typing in 'japanese words' into your search engine, and find the link that says 'Jeffrey's japanese dictionary' i can't remember, but it should say Jeffrey something though.
