I’ve been researching the verb “to wear,” and have found it varies a lot more than it does in English. I want to make a cute sign for my desk that says “Please remember to wear your mask!” and I want to use the right verb.
I suspect strongly that 着る is out because it seems to only refer to things you wear from the shoulders down. My best bet so far is 被る, which is “to wear” and also “to cover,” but I’m only seeing it in the context of a wig or a hat. Can someone smarter than me or more experienced point me to the correct verb?
While we’re at it, if you would post how YOU would say “Please remember to wear your facemask” in Japanese, I’d be interested in the whole thing.
