Word usage

is moshimoshi used on the phone only?


Usuallly. Check out this article:

Saying yes to it only being used on the phone seems inaccurate based on that article. That article says it’s also used to get somebody’s attention even when you’re not on the phone.

You’re not going to use moshi moshi off the phone too much. But when you do it’ll usually be to get someone’s attention. If your friend is spacing out, you can wave your hand in front of their face and say, “moshi moshi.”

Or, if you see someone passed out on the sidewalk, you can tap their shoulder and say, “moshi moshi!”

Huh, guess I didn’t read the whole thing carefully enough.
