Kansaiben (関西弁) and Oosakaben (大阪弁) word list

An integral part of any dialect is of course, vocab differences. And there are many. The following list does not contain everything like different names for dishes, or flowers, or children's language, or... well a lot really, this is more of a list of words I figured would be the most desired without going into meticulous detail. HOWEVER: if you know of words not in this list, contact me. Right away. That's right, don't just sit there, go to the contact page and let me know what this list can be appended with!

This list is sorted on japanese order (so that means not alphabetically), and the indexing system used in it is also the japanese indexing system. My apologies to those that cannot read hiragana, I'm afraid you'll have to scroll based on the romaji you see next to the words.

ON TO THE LIST!

Well, almost anyway. A quick primer: the blue fields are section headings, the green fields are indices to jump to either the next column of syllables, or the next syllable in the same column, for left and right index respectively. Right, enough of that, on to the list! (really this time)
