For example, I want to emphasize the word しらない by saying shiiiiiranai, しいいいらない seems a little bit weird to me. How do you write this in japanese character, can we also write this in the form of kanji?


Yes, writing it as しいいいらない is okay, but is relatively uncommon. More common ways to write this are:

  • しーらない!
  • しーーーらない!
  • し~らない!
  • し~~~らない!
  • しいぃぃらない! (with small ぃ)

Needless to say, don't use these in business settings or in formal letters.

  • しかも、しいいらないは全然OKじゃない – Takahiro Waki Jun 6 '17 at 12:21

全然知らない。I don't know at all.

しーらない、知らないもんね is like female or child. It means "so I am concerned about that."
