looking for the Japanese word for "mix" - hapayonsei - 08-03-2008

Hey there Halvsies...

I was reading the newspaper that I write for (hokubeinews.com)
and found an article about cooking... well, there was a word like "mazeru" (I am sure I have it wrong!!)
for "mix" that i thought was intriguing

and unfortunately as I was cleaning up, I threw away the article... can't find it on the website, either!

any ideas at all?

thanks !

Ethnically mixed people? Then the use of katakana ミックス (mikkusu = mix) is starting to take foothold.

But, yes, "mazeru" is right for the general verb "to mix."

happayonsei, the word for mixed people in Japanese is 混血(konketsu) While ハーフ is commonly used, this is a loan word, 外来語(gairaigo). If you are going to publish this word, I hope you don't write mazzatta hito, as this is not how they say it in normal Japanese.

I am wondering 中山Delia 富野さん、, are you hispanic and Japanese mix? I am wondering from seeing your avatar. Being 4th Generation Japanese, how many percent Japanese are you? Or are you a Pacific Islander (Hawaiian Japanese mix?) Happa Kepani.
