So, it's just like [上]?
計算から言えばこれで正しい is a correct sentence?
Jordi
Yes, it is. You can also say like 計算上(で)は、これで正しい。hmm it's just like 上.
Miki
is that 上 a [uede] or [jyoude] ? I guess from the example it is uede, which i thought was more "upon" than "based on" - ie implying a careful thought and conclusion. whereas "based on" is more like a conclusion is obvious, based on the information... is there that same difference in japanese or are they the same?
your name
計算上(jou)(で)は、or 計算の上(ue)では
Miki
Please see [uede].
I don't think からいうと implys a careful thought and conclusion.
Miki
計算から言えばこれで正しい is somewhat awkward - 計算からするとこれで正しい is preferable.
