Can you read it? This one happens to be katakana (borrowed from
English/French). It could be romanized as <messeji> or <messeeji> (and
perhaps others, depending on school). It might be appropriate for talking
about object oriented languages.

If the context were the like of telephone messages, then it would probably


which is kanji, (romanizes to <dengon> or <den-gon>). In other contexts, we
might need other transliterations.
