I was

going to tell Gelaye off for making a new thread just for this word, but then I had a look and we don't have

a "what's this word mean?" thread?

So I guess, this is a good thread [Image: whistling.gif]

how do you call someone's strong hand and foot? i mean, if
someone is left-handed, then his strong hand

is left. is there any word for
that?

in japanese it's "kikite" , and for the strong

foot it is "kikiashi".

but what's the words in English, anyone know?! Thanks

erm... not

exactly the topic, and also a little embarassing, but... does the word ブリブリ exist as

child language for penis, or is that something our family made up (like ずずず for vacuum

cleaner. I always thought it's a word until 3 years 前 or sth.)

It's like danielyuki sez, plus in surf vernacular, your strong foot is the one on the

back of the board, so left foot on the back is called 'goofy-footed'.

And as everyone knows, an

amphibian is a frog that can surf either way.

Is

there another meaning to the word "kanwa" besides that of "kanwajiten?"

Chinamini it's chin chin bura bura souseiji, not chin chin buri buri.

Buri buri is more like, geri or unko buri buri.

Doesn't buri buri refer to the behavior of a "burikko?"

Thank you for the answer. [Image: smile.gif] so buri buri would be like "pflshsqw".

Maybe you

mean 緩和 and not 漢和? Then it's relief. It's the only kanwa-wordI know, but I

bet there are tons.
