I know 〜はどう言う意味ですか? but how might you ask this question in a casual setting among friends?

2

A phrase like this can be asked a lot of ways, in a casual tone.

Simplest I think would be:

xxって何{なに}?

This can be used both for meaning and also identification of objects.

If you want to be specific about asking for a meaning, I'd try:

xxの意味{いみ}は何{なに}?

Or, say, something with two possible meanings, I'd go with:

xxって、何{なん}の意味{いみ}?

or

xxって、どんな意味?

  • thank you! this is a perfect answer :)) – jacoballens Jul 24 at 1:03
