Hello, everyone. I would like to write about abbreviation today. I am sure you use your own unique abbreviation in your country. Japanese people are constantly abbreviating words to create new ones.
I always buy an obento box at Konbini by the station.
Japanese people say Sumaho or Ketai.
I like mocha frappuccino from Sutaba. Can you guess what it is? It’s Starbucks.
By the way, we call laptop computers Noto pasokon, but in general, every personal computer including laptops is called Pasokon.
You can say, “Would you please pass me the Rimokon (remote controller) of Eakon?”
Game center or arcade
You can find Ge-sen in a lot of places like supermarkets, shopping malls, etc.
I am sure you will often hear these abbreviated words in conversations with your friends in Japan.
