Tamana City of Kumamoto Prefecture created a unique list of local dialects. Aiming to support those who move into the city from elsewhere, eighty-five expressions are introduced in a sheet designed like a traditional ‘ban-zuke’ sumo-ranking. The yokozuna-ranked word is ‘totsukemunyaa’ – guess what it means! The list will be given to anyone considering relocation and is also available online. Source: Yomiuri / Tamana City facebook
