Lots of words/expressions/phrases use 気 in one way or another. For example 気をつけて, 気味, 気になる, 気がつく, 気がする, 天気 etc...

Is there a reference somewhere for the seemingly more "interesting" phrases (like the ones using つく as described in Dissecting つく verbs). By reference i mean translation, sample usage and maybe even an explanation of why it means what it means.

  • Hard to forget stuff you don't know :) Are you talking about something like 人気がある?

You can try looking for these phrases or words with these sites:



If you become a member of http://lang-8.com/ (it is free), you can ask native speakers for examples or explanations.

  • I was looking for a more formal description, so I am not sure that native speakers can be of great help here. Weblio is nice, but I could not find what I was looking for.
