I knew about より and its comparative function but it seemed not suitable for this sentence:


What's the meaning of "実家より" in this context?

1 Answer 1



「より」, in this context, means the same thing as 「から」("from"). 「より」 is more formal than 「から」.

"I will contact you again from my parents' home."

The official Japanese title of the James Bond film 'From Russia with Love' is 「007 ロシアより愛をこめて」. It would sound too light and casual to use 「から」there.

  • Can you please tell me just for my practicing, how Japanese pronouce 007 in the title of this James Bond movie? Maybe ゼロゼロセフン [zero-zero-sefun]?
