Just a quick question here, but somehow hard to find: How could I say "as in" in japanese ?

For example :

I learned the kanji 「評」as in 「評論」today.

Here is my attempt, sorry for the lousy japanase :

You can simply use の:

  • 今日は「評論」の「評」の漢字を覚えました。
  • ブラボーのB、デルタのD
  • 「服を着る」の「着る」じゃなくて、「髪の毛を切る」の「切る」です。
  • Doesn't 「髪の毛を切る」方 need a の before 方?

  • @Sweeper I think it's optional.

You can safely say:

私は「評判」の評、「評価」の評、「評論」* の評のように、評の字を覚えました, or 私は「評判]、「評価、「評論」に用いられる(ように)、評の字を覚えました

as 評 is not exclusively used for the word, 評論.

Note: * in order of popularity.
