Slang, Curses & EpithetseBook - 2013
This is a user-friendly and concise Japanese phrase book and guide to Japanese slang and Japanese curses. The Japanese are extraordinarily polite and soft-spoken people who are always indirect and evasive in their dealings with each other. Right? Well, not really. They can be just as explicit, vicious, vile and downright vulgar as anyone else when they want to be. This little gem of a book teaches you hundreds and hundreds of Japanese taunts, threats, curses and expletives that you'll never find in any dictionary-showing you how the Japanese really talk to one another when they are angry or emotional. Fun and entertaining, it will help you to read Japanese, write Japanese, and speak Japanese. It leaves no taboo untouched and sets the record straight. Learn how to call somebody a lecher, a deadbeat, a tub of lard, (and much worse than we can show here)-and arm yourself with phrases such as "Drop dead" or "what sewer did you crawl out of jackass? Fun and instructive, it is the perfect antidote for those boring language classes you have been taking, and your Japanese friends will die when they hear you trying out new expressions like tonji (pig-child) and dauma-geisha (fat-bottomed geisha).
