|Japanese Swear word - Shimatta|
Japanese Swear Words Part 2 Video Transcript
Hey guys! This is Ken Cannon and Welcome to part 2 of the top ten most common Japanese swear words!
And as you all should know I’m using the Japanese anime “naruto” as my helper.
Swear word number 6,
This swear word is very similar to the swear word Temee, in the essence that’s it’s actually a pronoun meaning the word “you”. And while temee carries a more vulgar connotation, kisama actually begets the air of “hate” or “detest” to whom it’s directed. Therefore a good English equivalent might be “motherfucker”
Kisama also is used by more mature individuals, or people or think their mature. And temee, is a swear word mostly used by a brasher younger crowd.
Here's an example depicting the difference between teme and kisama..
“Temee! Don’t touch my girlfriend’s ass.”
Temee! Kanojou no ketsu sawaruna!
“kisama… how dare you touch my wife’s ass…”
Kisama yokumo tsuma no oshiri wo
So basically… if you touch someone’s ass, be prepared to called one of these names…
Swear word number 7!
This swear word literately means “oh no! It happened” but is usually translated as “crap”, or “damn.”
Now shimatta is probably in the same category as “baka” ….the category that isn’t really Swear words at all.
But I’m including them because as opposed to other nastier swear words, shimata and baka are used much more often and therefore more essential to learning Japanese.
“Shimatta! I forgot to let grandma out of the closet!”
Shimatta baachan wo corousetto kara dasu no wasureta!
Yeah use it like that...
Shimatta is also used at the end of other verbs, like eat. To mean something like (oh no, I ate already!) but that’s something Ill cover more in depth in another lesson.
On to Swear word number 8
The swear word Urusai literately means “noisy” or “you’re noisy” but since in Japan saying that is more or less a suggestion to be quiet and a bit insulting at the same time, it’s usually translated as meaning “shut up!”
In essence it’s used like this...
Usrusai! I’m trying to watch to watch sailor moon!
Urusai! Seeraa moon chuu da zo!
Now if you wanna be one of the cool kids, you have to use the slang version of this swear word“urusai”, which is “urusee”
This version is also a lot more common in casual conversation.
Swear word number 9!
The swear word Che in Japanese is more like a grunt than an actually word. But in English the translation often comes out as “damn” or “shit”
Che also comes close to the English “psst!” or “hump” depending on the context.
Basically you can use che whenever you’d like to scoff someone.
“che! I can’t believe you have actually have 7 nipples”
Che! Nana chikubi wo moteiru to wa na…
Here are some more examples from naruto
And the last Swear word for today’s lesson is, number 10
The swear word Damare is a verb that means “shut up”. But since commands of most kinds are pretty harsh in Japanese, it also carries about the strength of the phrase “shut the fuck up!”
This phrase is used when you’re usually upset about something...
“Damare! I don’t look like Taylor Lautner!”
Damare! Teiraa ratonaa ni nitenee yo
And here are some examples from naruto
Just remember this phrase is very powerful, so if someone says this to you probably fucked up.
Alright! That was my presentation of the top ten Japanese Swear words. I used word frequency charts of, no surprise here, naruto! As well as my own 7 + years of Japanese knowledge to come up with the words so it’s quite accurate.
