Uses of 噌?


#1

Okay so I know 噌 is supposed to mean Boisterous, but can anyone give me any words where it uses this meaning?
Heck, I’ve only ever seen it used in 味噌, which maaaaybe uses the boisterous meaning, but yeah.


#2

Yea that’s about the only place it is used in modern Japanese.


#3

Ah, good to know. Suspicion confirmed. :smiley:

You asked a bit ahead of time but thanks (it’s level 35 so just got it this week, and was also wondering!)

And now I’d better not miss the guru tomorrow. :stuck_out_tongue:


#5

Haha, I reset my level recently, so I had encountered it before. :stuck_out_tongue:
And with reminders like this, there’s no way you’ll miss it. :slight_smile:


#6

You’re gonna miss it and delay your level by 2 days just so that I can surpass you :smirk:

脳味噌 – brain tissue … … what is wrong with these people?


#8

This is the same word as 脳みそ, right? I guess 脳みそ is the most used one, since WK has it.


#9

I didn’t expect it to be actually Miso :wink:

Something fun I learned. While I often say things like “My brain’s turned to mush” or similar gooey imagery when my brain just isn’t seeming to work, in Japanese the feeling can be expressed as
脳みそが固まっている(感覚)
… In other words, the opposite of my intuition about a brain on the verge of meltdown.
