What does the phrase 'sou janai' (romaji) mean in an informal speaking context?


'That's not so', 'no', 'you're wrong', &c. By the way, it's 'Rōmaji' (no N), not 'romanji'.

  • Something like 'that's not true, is it?' It would depend on the context. – Angelos May 30 '15 at 17:51
  • Now I see. I heard some people expressing their surprise with this phrase. – iamawebgeek May 30 '15 at 17:54
