Word of the Day: Ijiwaru

By February 11, 2013

Follow me on:

Today's word is "ijiwaru (a cross temper; perverseness; an ill-natured person)".  It is written with a combination of three kanji characters: "i", "ji" and "waru".

* Kanojo wa totemo ijiwaru souda. 彼女はとても意地悪そうだ。 --- She looks very mean.
* Tomodachi ni ijiwaru o shite wa ikenai yo. 友達に意地悪をしてはいけないよ。 --- Don't treat your friend unfairly.
