Introduction to Ibarakese 6

Some letters have fewer words than others, so this week’s edition will be a little small. Have fun!=)

 

~ない (~nai) : (so-and-so)’s house/home.

ながたん、ながたな (nagatan, nagatana) : vegetable knife, carving knife

なじした? (naji shita ?) : are you okay ? what happened ? (dou shita no?)

なす (nasu) : to give birth (umu)

なや (naya) : the Ibarakese version of nee/naa agreement particle

Ex : すげーなや→ (sugee naya) -> sugoi nee (that’s amazing (eh!))

なんしょ (nansho) : please do (X) (~shite kudasai)

なんちった、なんつった (nanchitta, nantsutta) : (what was/I) said,

Ex : 今なんちったんで? (ima nanchittande ?) -> ima nante itta no ? (what did you just say?)

なんちゃかんげえねえ (nancha kangee nee) : (he/she’s probably) not thinking at all

Ex : やぁろでれすけだが、なんちゃかんげぇあんめぇ! (yaaro deresuke daga, nancha kangee anmee !) -> aitsu doushiyou mo nai yatsu dakara, nanimo kangaetenai yo ! (he’s hopeless, he’s not thinking of anything at all !)

なんちゃない (nanchanai) : it’s nothing, doesn’t matter (doutte koto nai)

Ex : このぐれえなんちゃねえよ (kono guree nanchanee yo) -> kono kurai doutte koto nai yo (this is nothing (I’m fine/I’ve been through worse))
