Correct use of the words -kun, -chan, -san, and -sama in Japanese

Correct use of the words -kun, -chan, -san, and -sama in Japanese

In this article, we would like to share our knowledge with all of you about the use of the words Kun, Chan, San and Sama along with examples. For those of you who are a weboo or like Japanese dramas, you must be familiar with the following words, -kun, -chan, -san, and -sama. Actually there are many types of name suffixes, such as -dono, -sensei, -senpai etc., but for the beginning we will discuss the use of the words kun, chan, san and sama. For those of you who are just learning Japanese, you might be wondering 'what exactly is -kun, -chan, - san?'. Here we provide the meanings of the words kun, -chan, -san, and -sama and their usage.

The use of the word kun in Japanese

To use a word ending in -kun, it is usually used to call the name of a man / boy. The suffix -kun can be used for people who are very close (familiar) to us. The suffix -kun can also sometimes be used to address a woman / woman, it's just that the one who calls her is someone who has a higher position than the woman.

Examples of using the word kun

When a woman is mentioning a man's name

  キ リ ト く ん は 超 イ ケ メ ン で す ね

Kirito-kun wa chō ikemen desu ne

Kirito is very handsome

Examples of using the suffix -kun for girls when a teacher calls his student, or when the boss calls a female employee

  ア リ ス く ん, こ の 本 を 持 っ て き て く だ さ い

Arisu-kun, kono-pon o motte kite kudasai

Alice, please bring this book [post_ads]

The use of the word chan in Japanese

For the word chan, it can be said to call someone cute like a child or girl (idol members for example). But the suffix chan is also sometimes used by a younger sibling to call Mas or Ma'am who are still in the same family, it's just that the younger sibling doesn't use the sister's name but uses the words -chan (お 兄 ち ゃ ん) or Onee-chan (お 姉 さ ん). The use of the word chan is not actually used for young children or girls, but the ending chan can also be used for people who are very close to us, such as friends or girlfriends.

Examples of using the word chan

  サ ギ リ ち ゃ ん は ち ょ う 可愛 い で す ね

Sagiri-chan wa chō kawaii desu ne

Sagiri-chan is really cute

  お 兄 ち ゃ ん 大好 き で す

Onii-chan daisuki-desu

I love my sister [post_ads_2]

The use of the word san in Japanese

For the suffix -san this can be used on anyone, especially for people we just met, superiors or it can also be used on people who are older than us. The -san suffix symbolizes politeness when we use it to address someone's name.

Examples of using the word san

  カ オ リ さ ん の 音 楽 は と て も 美 し い で す

Kaori-san no ongaku wa totemo utsukushī-desu

Kaori's music was really beautiful [post_ads]

The use of the -sama word in Japanese

The -sama suffix is usually used to pay tribute to someone who has a higher rank than us. The use of the -sama word can be interpreted as Tuan. If in the anime the -sama ending is usually used by waiters in cafes or in a large mansion.

  か ぐ や さ ま, 夕 食 の 時間 で す

Kaguya-sama, yūshoku no jikan-desu

Mrs. Kaguya, it's time for dinner

Maybe enough articles for the use of words kun, chan, san, and the -sama in Japanese, for the use of other words we might discuss at a later time. With this information, we hope it will be of use to you. [post_ads_2]
