It occurred to me that I use a lot of Japanese in my writing, so it’s the once-a-week dictionary!!! [kinda]

♥♥ This week’s word is the following: Henide – Insanity♥♥

SUFFIXES:

-chan
The most familiar term, usually used with pets, close friends, [sometimes] family members, etc.

-kun
This suffix denotes a general respect for the individual, and is mostly used in regards to males or boyish individuals. [ie: I (Ryuuzaki Kusakûrin) am female, but most of my friends address me as Kai-kun] This would be used with the name of an acquaintance or somewhat close friend/friendly person.

This suffix can be used for females as ‘-kun’ is for males. It is also more respectful and can denote a higher degree of wealth, respect, social standing, fame, power, etc. It is essentially Mr., Mrs., or Ms. is in English.

  1. Uhhhh…. not to try to undermine the girl that speaks Japanese, or anything, but, ummm… isn’t “roku” six? ‘Cause I seem to remember from those Japanese counting lessons (when was that? Like, second grade? As such, my memory could VERY EASILY be faulty) that “Shi” was four…. but… yeah… remember, I’m trying to draw on memories that are AT LEAST 5+ years old… and that’s if I’m lucky… so yeah… ummm… stuff…

  2. Thank you! Seriously, I had it wrong. It’s ‘yon’, ‘roku’ is six.
    I remember the first three due to Bleach… in Japanese, Yachiru calls Ichigo ‘Ichi-nii-san’, which means ‘big brother Ichi’.
    All the same… ‘ichi [1] – nii [2] – san [3]’

    =P
