    Hope is "kibou". You're one letter off. LOL.

    ...and lets see, "Trust me" can be said as, "_____(Boku, watashi, ore, jibun or any other word refering to self or name of self or someone else) wo shinjiro."

    That last word there, "Otorashikun", dont know it, maybe its another mixed up word or I just cant remember it. =p

    @ Shinku: Ahhhh. I guess. ^^;;


    Again, the closest thing to otorashikun I can think of is otonashiku. The word otonashii means "adult-like" (mature, grown-up, etc) and comes from the word otona, which means "adult". Otonashii only becomes otonashiku when you put it directly before a verb, i.e. otonashikushite (act like an adult), otonashiku mattete (wait like an adult), otonashiku damattete (be like an adult and shut up).

    Lets see, first of all "sabishii/samishii" means feeling lonely and not alone.

    So "I feel very alone" would be "Watashi wa totemo samishii/sabishii desu...". "I am still feeling lonely" is "Watashi wa mada samishii/sabishii kimochi desu..."

    ....and lets see "I am alone that it hurts"!? Well, I'm gonna have to get back on that.

    Thats a really good question.

    The best answer that I can give you to that is "context". There's a different word with the same meaning used in a different context. Theres probably more reasons like the origination of the word but I dont really feel like going into details like that...(^^);

    But you gotta think, this doesnt apply just to Japanese but to other languages as well.

    ...jeez, its like all I say here is "context". LOL

    BTW@blue_rebel: I actually went and looked up the word "Otanashii" cuz I always thought that it MEANT calm, quiet, and/or silent. But guess you taught me this time huh!? The word does originate/ branch off from the word "Otona"-adult.

    Shame on me...XP

    Re: Japanese language learning.

    Hahah. Know what? I never looked it up before, and no one taught me what it meant. ^^;; I just kind of figured after hearing it a million and one times that it did come from otona, because there are other words that have shii added to them too (right now the only one I can think of is narushii, though I don't think that counts because it's a foreign word ^^;, and then it's always otonashiku-something.... so yeah. Kind of like how you learn things by just listening.


    @ RayMe: There are two words for lonely, like Shinku mentioned - sabishii and samishii, both of which are written the same way. A colloquial version of this is sabii. NOT samii - that's a slangy way of saying samui; cold.

    The way to say "I feel so lonely it hurts" is itamu hodo samishii (you can add your version of "I" in front if you want; doesn't make a difference - without the "I" it works in any context). Although, people don't normally use itamu hodo - they'd rather use shinu hodo; which is "to the extent of dying"... so shinu hodo samishii would be something like "so lonely I could just die".

    Re: Japanese language learning.

    @Blue_Rebel: Ah, I think it's alright for members to post random questions on this thread, as long as it pertains to 'japanese language learning', which they do, from what i've read!

    Well, information: Common honorific titles in Japan

    1. San is the most common honorific title, used when addressing most social outsiders, for example, non-family members. San is used unless the addressee's status warrants one of the other terms mentioned below.
    2. Kun is an informal and intimate honorific primarily used towards males. (It is still used towards females, but rarely.) It is used by persons of senior status in addressing those of junior status, by males of roughly the same age and status when addressing each other, and by anyone in addressing male children. In business settings, women, particularly young women, may also be addressed as kun by older males of senior status. It is sometimes used towards male pets as well.
    3. Chan is the hypocoristic suffix, used to refer to children, animals, and people whom one has known since they were children. To use chan for adults whom one has not known since their childhood requires considerable intimacy, less for women than for men. Furthermore, attaching chan to a modified stem is more intimate than attaching it to the full form of the basic name. Chan may also be used for celebrities as a title of affection. For example, Arnold Schwarzenegger gained the nickname Shuwa chan in Japanese.
    4. Senpai is used by students to refer to or address senior students in an academic or other learning environment, in athletics and sports clubs, and also in business settings to refer to those in more senior positions. Kōhai is the reverse of this. It is used to refer to or address juniors, though it might be considered somewhat insulting or overly condescending in some circles to refer to someone as kōhai directly--kun is frequently used toward kōhai in direct address.
    5. Sensei is used to refer to or address teachers, practitioners of a profession such as doctors and lawyers, politicians, and other authority figures. It is used to show respect to someone who has achieved a certain level of mastery in an art form or some other skill. For example, Japanese manga fans refer to manga artists using the term sensei, as in Takahashi sensei for manga artist Rumiko Takahashi; the term is used similarly by fans of other creative professionals such as novelists, musicians, and artists. It is also a common martial arts title when referring to the instructor.
    6. Sama is the formal version of san. This honorific is used primarily in addressing persons much higher in rank than oneself and in commercial and business settings to address and refer to customers. It also appears in words used to address or speak of persons or objects for which the speaker wishes to show respect or deference, such as okyaku-sama (customer) or Tateishi-sama (a stone revered as a deity).
    7. Shi is used in formal writing, and sometimes in very formal speech, for referring to a person who is unfamiliar to the speaker, typically a person known through publications whom the speaker has never actually met. For example, the shi title is common in the speech of newsreaders. It is preferred in legal documents, academic journals, and certain other formal written styles. Once a person's name has been used with shi, the person can be referred to with shi alone, without the name, as long as there is only one person being referred to.
