~cha ~ちゃ

WIP : this article is incomplete and might change in the unforeseeable future.
In Japanese, ~cha ~ちゃ is a contraction of ~te wa ~ては. Although sometimes it means "tea," ocha お茶.

A couple of examples:
  • hito wo koroshicha dame
    Killing people: no good. (literally.)
    You shouldn't kill people.
    • hito wo koroshite wa dame
      (same meaning.)
    • dame ダメ
      No good.
  • kangaecha-iru-n-da
    Thinking, [I] am.
    • kangaete wa iru no da
      (same meaning.)
