Most recent Japanese word you've learned?


#1227

I was in Japan last week and picked up the word 店内. I’d never heard it before but knew what it meant instantly because I could picture the kanji in my mind as it was being said.

Me: ダブルエスプレソをお願いします。
Barista: 店内ですか?
Me: ええ、店内です。

I expect this to happen more and more as I advance once more through my (mostly forgotten) kanji.


#1228

A pedestrian mall in Japanese is 歩行者天国 (ほこうしゃてんごく)

歩行者 = pedestrian

天国 = paradise


#1229

戦線, meaning war front. My first new word from watching my new subscription of TV Japan.


#1230

せり出す to jut out; to protrude
轟く とどろく to reverberate; to roar
珈琲 コーヒー coffee

All from JLTP prep. I was quite surprised to discover there’s kanji for コーヒー, even if they are 当て字.


#1231

的外れ off the mark; off base. I’d recall it as “missed the point”

I’m struggling with 外れ on itself (definitely one of those pesky leeches on my end). While trying to understand the context of this word on Jisho, I found many instance of this particular phrase in the example sentences.

#1234

I don’t want to find these words; these words find me :sob: :sob: :sob:

親 (おや): dealer, as in cards, not drugs. I just learned this kanji as “parent”. Then I saw it on a YouTube video about learning how to play Japanese Mahjongg. 親 has now been burned.
