I recently got to 混乱 in Wanikani, which reminded me of something I’m still at a loss over. How do I say I’m at a loss?
Wanikani labels 混乱 as “confusion,” but since I didn’t think I’d heard it very often in Japan, I double-checked with a dictionary and sure enough, it’s more about a general (chaotic) state of confusion, which makes sense with the kanji involved.
So what is the best way to just say, in day-to-day experiences, that I was confused? (A misheard word, a custom I don’t know, etc.). Now that I’m looking, dictionaries list several. Help me through this confusion in expressing my confusion!
