What is your Favorite Japanese Term, Phrase And anything really.
I'd just like to see what people find Amusing, Interesting, Ect.
I think 救急車 - "kyuukyuusha" - ambulance, and 消防士 - "shouboushi" - firefighter, are fun to say. Words with a lot of repeated sounds like 暖かくなかった - "atatakakunakatta" - was not warm.
One I've come across recently is a bit dark but 人身売買 "jinshinbaibai" - slave trade/human trafficking - is very unfairly cute sounding.
The kanji for 大丈夫 - "daijoubu" - safe/alright are "big" "stature" "husband"
素敵 - "suteki" - Lovely, Wonderful - is an "uncovered" "enemy"
atatakakunakatta - Lol it's even better than red lorry yellow lorry! :3 ...I'm going through nostalgia now of saying red lollie yellow lollie... :)
I've always liked how the word ダイエット consists of more syllabic characters than there are alphabetic letters in the word "diet". ^^
Some of my favorite Japanese words are: ひかり、あめ、雪、かさ、花火、きつね、ほたる、魔法少女、アニメ、せいぎのみかた、きせき、せかい、きぼう、ぜつぼう、猫、神社、しつれいします、わかりました、いただきます、かみなり、水、先生、きゅうけつき、ほし、さくら、未来、なつかしい、友達、お姉さん、妹、お兄さん、弟、こたつ、こたえ、あんさつ、じさつ、むげん、もみじ、夏、はる、心、なら、自分, any adjective-made-noun-by-ending-in-sa, such as らしさ, and any verb that ends with たくなかった such as 食べたくなかった。 That's just off the top of my head. Japanese is just so beautiful and Japanese words and sentences are so beautiful and fun to pronounce. I love syncopation in music and I love how the small っ in words gives the language a syncopated feel.

めんどくさい is great because i can't think of a good English equivalent. It basically means 'oh what a bother' or 'how troublesome' but those phrases sound so awkward in English. Also 花火 (はなび) for 'firework' becauseit's a) fun to say and b) has such a cool literal translation (fire flower)
