Word of the Day: Shitsurei

By April 29, 2013

Follow me on:

Today's word is "shitsurei (rudeness; impoliteness; bad manners; a breach of etiquette)". It is written with a combination of two kanji characters "shitsu" and "rei".

* Shokujichuu ni tabako o suu nowa shitsurei da. 食事中にタバコをすうのは失礼だ。 --- It is against etiquette to smoke at table.
* Shitsurei desu ga, doko ni osumai desuka. 失礼ですが、どこにお住まいですか。 --- May I ask you where you live?
* Dewa, shitsurei shimasu. では、失礼します。 --- Well, I must be going now.
