今日の日本語 p(^_^)q Today’s Japanese.

Nobody is pretending that Japanese is an easy language to learn.

Take the verb ‘to wear’ for example.
In English you wear trousers, you wear a T shirt and you wear a hat.
The Japanese like to mix it up a little.

To wear trousers you would use 履く (haku)

To say you will wear a t shirt you would need the verb 着る (kiru)

For a hat it would be 被る (kaburu. Another use of this verb is to suffer, hat hair?)

Accessories use the verb 着ける (same kanji as above but said tsukeru)

Rings are 嵌める (hameru. The old verb for make love, I’ll leave the visual up to you)

Taking off is a little easier, tops and bottoms are 脱ぐ (nugu).
Hats, scarves and gloves are 取る (toru).
And accessories are 外す (hazusu)

So there you have it, enjoy putting on and taking off your clothes.

Happy Japanesing!
