Hey listeners! Can you come up with any words or phrases using Gorawase?

由紀先生、

説明してくれてありがとうございます。
ごろあわせの普通の書き方は何ですか?漢字を使いますか?
私はグーグルの自動補完の機能が「語呂合わせ」を入力してくれることに気付きました。

( Thank you for the explanation, Yuki Sensei.
How is goroawase usually written? Do we normally use kanji or just kana?
I’ve noticed that Google’s auto-complete feature enters 語呂合わせ for me. )

モノノフしょうがない san

すみません。
The word in the first post from us is wrong.
It must be ごろあわせ 語呂あわせ  which means ‘game of rhyming’ and ‘a game of making puns’.
I am really sorry we made you confused.

皆さん、こんばんは。楽しいですよ。「ごらわせ」と呼ばれていますか?私の辞書には載っていません。新しい言葉ですか?一ヶ月前、数字につけた可笑しい振り仮名を気付いた時に、分かりました。

( Good evening everyone. This is fun. So it is called gorawase? It’s not in my dictionary. Is it a new word? I got wise to this trick a month ago when I noticed some strange furigana over some numbers. )

Hi Jonathon Eng!

4649 is a great one! Maybe my favorite one is 39, because it is very short 😇

I didn’t know there was a name for these types of phrases, but glad to know now. My favorite one prior to reading this is よろしく 4649
