This may not be correct, but my impression is that with 一斉, it's multiple "copies" of an action happening at the same time such that it really only feels like one action. 一斉メール → Sending one email to multiple recipients at the same time 選挙の開票は全国一斉に行われる → Ballot counting will begin simultaneously [at the same time] throughout the country. So even ...

I am wondering if there is any nuance or difference between them ? Yes, there is. I'll try to explain my opinion. I am also wondering if there is some politeness attached to it ? No, politeness isn't the factor 一斉に I would say "along with" Timing is not important compared to 同時に Larger scale compared to 同時に Dynamic and impactful compared to ...

The word "一斉" is used when a lot of people do something at the same time. e.g. コンサート会場{かいじょう}に居{い}た人々{ひとびと}が一斉{いっせい}に拍手{はくしゅ}をした。 The people in the concert hall clapped in unison. On the other hand, "同時" is used when (not a lot of) people do something at the same time. e.g. 路上{ろじょう}パフォーマンスを見{み}ていた人々{ひとびと}が、同時{どうじ}に拍手{はくしゅ}をした。People ...

Not a native language speaker, but I've seen a phrase in a Chinese historical romance (set in ancient times) that went something like this: meiren (美人) is easy to find, jiaren (佳人) is difficult to seek.

ゲロ = vomit シヴ = civilization ? It could mean a suit that is reminiscent of bum/dirtbag, non-conformist, dadaist, or punk (or any combination of these, for that matter) culture. This could possibly be related to what you read that involved bikes and cars in the sense of punk roughly equivocating biker or dragracer, if those are the types of bikes and cars we ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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.
