English to Japanese translations [Non-PRO] Linguistics / Formal and informal style
English term or phrase:Japanese formal and informal style
I would like to know the main differences between Japanese formal and informal style. When and why do you use each of them? Does this depend on the targeted audience? Or does it depend on the length restrictions? Thanks!
