[Video] How to count things
物の数え方​

Reference from the Japan Foundation

- Japanese subtitles -

 3つ目は、ものの数え方です。

 

動物が好きですか。

 

はい、うちには犬が3人います。

 

人を数える時は「3人」と言いますが、犬のような小さい動物を数える時は「3人」とは言いません。

 

「3匹」といいます。

 

動物が好きですか。

 

はい、うちには犬が3匹います。

 

同じように、細長いものは「本」、水やコーヒーなどは「杯」、薄いものは「枚」、機械などは「台」を使います。

 

日本語では、数える対象によって、数の言い方が変わります。

クッション言葉を使いましょう
Use cushion words

クッションとなる言葉をつけると相手に優しく伝わります。

If you add a cushioning word, it will gently convey the message to the other person.

 

例えば、

いいにくいんだけど

よかったら

悪いけど

今いいですか?

せっかくだけど

相手の気持ちを考えると、なかなか言い出せないこともありますよね。そんなときには、クッション言葉が有効です。

Sometimes it is difficult to say something when you consider the feelings of the other person. In such cases, cushion words are useful.
