Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com! Well, it's not always polite, but sometimes we make noises when we eat. Ever wonder how a word like "slurp" came to be? The word sounds just like the noise it describes. "Slurp" sounds like a slurp. Japanese has many onomatopoeic words too, and a number of them are about eating. Don't get the idea that the Japanese are sloppy eaters just because we have so many words to describe eating sounds. Far from it.
