By 止す, do you mean よす? It is almost always written in kana alone. Besides, 止める has two readings (とめる and やめる) and two meanings. Which do you refer to? You have to choose the right verb depending on the intended meaning: とめる: to stop doing something (that is already in progress) / to stop (a physically moving object) やめる: to refrain from doing something (usu....

I also believe the word fuck has too many meaning too, but... There's a word for it: まぐわう. This dictionary even has "ファックする"(To fuck). It's a word that we don't see much anymore (because we have ヤる, セックスする, etc...), but I think it will be understood by most people. ...Maybe.

I feel like this question is lacking a super detailed answer, so I'm going to give an excruciatingly detailed breakdown of various kanji thresholds. 1500ish: This is probably the range of kanji that the average person remembers how to actually handwrite directly from memory. 2135: This is the number of jouyou kanji. These are the kanji that are required to ...

ゲロシブ splits into the part of ゲロ and シブ. シブい comes from 渋み. It describes bitterness or a bit of sourness. The aesthetic nuance describes maturity, so it's actually fashionable not in a so young and fresh way. Probably it means “dandy” in this context. ゲロ literally means “a vomit”, but it is simply used as an intensifier like “damn” cool or “badass”. Thus the ...

So, the question is a bit awkwardly phrased and the emphasis on “fuck” is a bit over the top, but I did try to find a native Japanese word for “to have sexual intercourse”. As you may know, native Japanese words are commonly called 大和言葉 (Yamato kotoba), so I searched for “性交する 大和言葉” and came across this page which reviews a book “Speaking Yamato Japanese ...

As a matter of fact, there is a food called 梅漬. The difference between 梅干 and 梅漬 is that 梅干 is made by drying the plums in the sun and then pickling them in salt, while 梅漬 is made without any drying in the sun.

For me personally, I have never seen or heard the word "Mikasa" used to refer to oranges. I was born and spent a lot of time in Japan, but I have never heard of the word "Mikasa" except for: A company Mikasa city in Hokkaido The mountain in Nara and the battleship named after it The anime character you mentioned And lastly, the names of ...

In simplest form, on'yomi and kun'yomi are ways of reading kanji that relate to the meaning of the character. So, for example, if 独 is referring to something being alone, then you're using either an on'yomi (e.g. doku) or a kun'yomi (e.g. hitori). If you take a kanji's reading and use it to write another word, then that's ateji. For example, if you use 独 as ...

一般 is general as opposed to special, and can also be a translation of ordinary, average (in the sense of non-special). 世間 originally meant secular world (as opposed to the world of Buddhist monks), and 世間一般 can be translated as worldly, ordinary, average. A short answer is, in the sense of average, ordinary, you can most probably use always 一般 without ...

It should be a typo. やって来た is always read やってきた. A wild guess is that up to some point it was やって[来]{く}る and changed at the last minute.
