Outrageous Japanese Summary

Outrageous Japanese: Slang, Curses and Epithets by Jack Seward

This is a user-friendly and concise Japanese phrase book and guide to Japanese slang and Japanese curses.

The Japanese are extraordinarily polite and soft-spoken people who are always indirect and evasive in their dealings with each other. Right? Well, not really. They can be just as explicit, vicious, vile and downright vulgar as anyone else when they want to be. This little gem of a book teaches you hundreds and hundreds of Japanese language taunts, threats, curses and expletives that you'll never find in any dictionary-showing you how the Japanese really talk to one another when they are angry or emotional. Fun and entertaining, it will help you to read Japanese, write Japanese, and speak Japanese. It leaves no taboo untouched and sets the record completely straight. Learn how to call somebody a lecher, a deadbeat, a tub of lard, (and much worse than we can show here)-and arm yourself with phrases such as "Drop dead" or "what sewer did you crawl out of jackass? Fun and instructive, it is the perfect antidote for those boring language classes you have been taking, and your Japanese friends will die when they hear you trying out new expressions like tonji (pig-child) and dauma–geisha (fat-bottomed geisha). Highlights of this Japanese phrasebook include:

  • Hundreds of colorful phrases organized by topic and use.
  • Explanations of context and culture.
  • All phrases shown in written Japanese script (hiragana, katakana, and kanji) and Romanized script (romanji).
  • compact travel size.
Intended for students of all levels and anyone interested in how Japanese is really spoken, this book is absolutely indispensable for foreigners who live in Japan and want to know what is being said when someone insults you in Japanese!
