A foreigner residing in Yokohama City is arbitrarily inventing katakana words at will, according to local sources.
Several local residents have been confronted with a range of spontaneously contrived katakana words orally communicated by Barry Harvey.
“Within minutes the gaijin gave birth to an assortment of new katakana words that were only conceived in his brain a split second prior to them spawning from his mouth,” said Hiroko Taniguchi.
Barry Harvey remains confident that English words become clearer if spoken more loudly and communicated in katakana speak.
“At first I thought these terms may be some specialized borrowed words recently imported into the Japanese language but then I realized this guy was just an a***hole.”
Over 90 per cent of the words pronounced in katakana speak by Barry Harvey are not actually Japanese words.
