言い分's meaning
It's slightly difficult to understand what "ones way" means. "One's" point is almost as ambiguous. In American English, we have the phrase "my take on(a topic)." At the very least, I think it should include "One's stance (on a topic)."
The words and kanji on this web site come from the amazing dictionary files JMDict, EDICT and KANJIDIC. These files are the property of the Electronic Dictionary Research and Development Group, and are used in conformance with the Group's licence. The example sentences come from the projects Tatoeba and Tanaka Corpus. Kanji search by radicals is based on the Kradfile2 and Kradfile-u files containing radical decomposition of 13108 Japanese characters. Many thanks to all the people involved in those projects!
