Your favourite Japanese word

Postby andycarmenjapanese8100 » March 23rd, 2013 10:28 pm

Mine is "kimokawa."

A mix of the words "kimochi warui" and "kawaii" it means "disgusting but cute." Like a kitten being sick.

こんにちは、アンディさん。僕のなまえはエリックです。どうぞよろしく。

As being relatively new to Japanese, my vocabulary is rather weak. Though, at this time, ちず (map) is my favorite word. I just like the way it sounds. :mrgreen:
Sheegoth are large predatory creatures native to the frigid Phendrana Drifts region of Tallon IV from Metroid Prime.

Shuwa chan

My sensei's favorite nick, not entirely a word but it represents 1 thing.

For some reason, whenever the lady who does the "word of the day" says ひとびと it makes me laugh. I can sit there pressing the replay button again and again :mrgreen:

モロヘイヤもね is a line in the AKB48 song やさいシスターズ.

(about 1.25 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pizw3Wf8MHM)

I spent a long time being mystified by what it could mean, and now I can't get it out of my head. I find myself muttering モロヘイヤもね to myself at random moments. :|
