Just when you thought I was making empty promises, here is the third and final post devoted to the word 「言う」 and the wait was worth it because the third post is a podcast!
Various Slang for 「言う」 (length: 14:19)
You can subscribe to this podcast with iTunes from the following link:
This podcast features Akina as we discuss various slang for 「言う」 such as pronouncing it as 「ゆう」 or replacing 「という」 with 「つ」. We also get an explanation of 「というか」 in Japanese as well as looking at variations such as 「ていうか」、「つうか」、and 「てか」.
We also discussed 「つ～の」 and the fact that you need to have the declarative 「だ」 for nouns (and na-adjectives).
I also learned some new words like 八方美人、むずい and some culture from 10 years ago.
This is the last of three posts discussing 「言う」 so make sure to check out the previous two posts if you haven’t read them yet.
The first post discussed “Defining things with 「いう」“.
The second post discussed “Using 「というか」 to rephrase things”.
