Help with today's word of the day "フットボールのたまをとる"

Postby ricks.travis+nihongo_519678 » January 18th, 2018 11:23 pm

Please help with the middle word たま。
I know the first word is football and the verb is 'to catch', but what does "たま" mean?

ありがとうございます!

it's the Japanese word for "ball". So it's "to take the "football-ball"".

Hi all,

Thank you for the comments!
フットボールの玉を取る means "catch a football." The word とる has a several different meaning. This dictionary link is very useful.
