I didn’t want to post this to the Japanese Language section, because my question is mainly about the English meaning.
The Meaning mnemonic says “A tsunami is coming, and you want to walk over it, so you have to ford it. Think about it – you ford a river, you ford anything that’s water, unless you’re Jesus – you’re not Jesus. You don’t walk across a tsunami, you ford it.”
I honestly do not understand the exact meaning of the word ‘ford’. If you are fording (?), what exactly are you doing? It’s an English word I’ve never seen used, nor heard someone use it. I know the car company…
Please help a desperate Dutchie… when I understand the meaning it’ll be much easier to learn the kanji itself! Thanks in advance!
