Japanese Words & Expressions
+ Loser +Japanese people use the expression "make-inu" in a similar way Americans use the word "loser."
make-inu (or makeinu)
"Make-inu" literally means "a dog that gets the worst of it in a dog fight." Therefore, it means "a loser" or "an underdog."
(a loss; (a) defeat; a lost game)
(a dog [dogs])
Don't pronounce the first part "make" like the English word make. Try to pronounce "ma" as in mother, and "ke" as in ken.
Think the word "inu" like "i-nu." Note that "i" sound should be like that of leave, and "nu" should sound similar to the "nu" in nude; make the vowel sounds much shorter here. Remember, it's important to pronounce each vowel clearly.
This expression can be very offensive and rude.
