Results for Love

「愛」(あい) [ai] Love. 「恋愛」(れんあい)[ren'ai] "Romantic Love" (as a desired result or an objective on, for example, a dating show or reality show). While the term 恋(こい)[koi] has more nascent orientation, in a funny 漫才(まんざい)[man'zai] comedy skit by popular duo Sandwich Man, the new international student is asked by his boss at the new part-time gig in Japan, "do you have any questions?" to which the international student asks, "what's the difference between 愛(あい)[ai] and 恋(こい)[koi]?" 「愛と恋の違いは何ですか。」「あいとこいのちがいはなんですか。」[ai-to-koi-no-chi-ga-i-wa-nan-dess-ka]. The boss emphatically replies, 「知るわけねーお前!」(しるわけねーおまえ)[shi-ru-wa-ke-nehhh-oh-ma-e] which roughly translates to "How the eff should I know?!" somewhat literally as "there is absolutely no reason for me to know this, you!(inferior)." 愛情(あいじょう)[ai-jou] is sometimes used to expound love and affection. 「愛情を広げよう」(あいじょうをひろげよう) [ai-jou-o hi-ro-ge-yohh] "Spread the affection!"
