Previous senryu

  1. 爽快に起き目覚ましの故障知る
    woke up refreshed; / realized my alarm / had malfunctioned


Current senryu challenge

Volume: Husbands

  1. いい家内10年経ったらおっ家内

This one’s great! Sounds like a dad joke I might make. :smile:

This time the competition may be figuring out the reading more than the interpretation (not to mention figuring out how to express it in English!).

Forgot to add this definition which will help: おっかない

Remember to please use the spoiler tag with your translation attempts! Also, please include the reading in kana with your submission.

Everyone is encouraged to participate, no matter your level!

Online tools like dictionaries, sentence databases, and even AI translation engines are fair game and can be extremely helpful. Yomichan is particularly handy if you use the Chrome or Firefox browser. The 語源(ごげん)由来(ゆらい)辞典(じてん) is also an excellent resource for researching the etymology of various words and expressions.

Here are the links to the 356 Japanese originals (spoiler free) and to the the spreadsheet with all the upcoming senryu as well as the translations to date.
