As topic, "(アタシは当時、バイクなんて全然詳しくなかったけど、タカのその横顔が、すごく楽しそうに見えた)"

タカ in this sentence, what does it mean (it's not a name taka for sure)

  • 3
    It's almost certainly a person whose (nick)name is Taka. I can't think of any other ways to interpret this.

タカ means "hawk" maybe, if it is not the nickname or the name of the man.

Maybe the woman confused ワシ (eagle) with タカ (hawk).

I knew next to nothing about motorbikes, but I was interested in them when I saw the eagle's (hawk's) profile emblem.

    Hawk タカ is タカ{LH}(0) while name タカ(貴、考 etc)is タカ{HL}(1).
