What does "aishiteru" mean? 2005/4/25 21:08
Oh, and I've been watching Kenshin for some time now, and I suppose it's time to ask. What exactly does "gozario" mean?

"Aishiteru" = Aishite iru = I love you/Love ya!

About the other one, I'm guessing that it's "... gozaruyo" that comes at the end of sentences? Then it's an old-fashioned way to say "... desu yo" or "da yo," just an ending to a plain statement saying "it is (something)," etc. (If you know some Japanese sentences, just take it like "... desu" in modern speech, with "yo" to add friendliness or emphasis in coversation.)

How would you write I love yuo in Kanji, I want to say it fallowed by a name.
by Gusmiko rate this post as useful

You can't write it completely in Kanji 2008/9/17 14:35
But the best way to say it would be

(Name)は大好き
xx wa dai suki

What does "wa dai suki" actually means?
by Gusmiko rate this post as useful

大好き 2008/9/18 12:03
aishiteru
愛してる

xxx ga dai suki means actually that you like somebody or something very much.

another way to say that you like somebody would be

xxx no koto ga suki
xxx のことが好き

'daisuki' is basically 'suki' (like) emphasized greatly to the level of 'love'.

The same goes for 'kirai' (dislike) to 'daikirai' (hate).

Woot! I'm actually able to help out for once.

Thank you so much DasSiggi.
" 好きだよ" what does this mean and what's the pronunciation?

suki da yo 2008/9/23 10:19
だ [da] is the informal form of です [desu]. It is a (the only?) copula (linking verb, a word that connects a subject to its noun/adjective. Ex: be)

[Is your example a complete sentence or a phrase? But anyway...]

In Japanese, if the subject is clear, it is usually omitted. So in your case, the 'I' is already implied, so 私 [watashi] / 僕 [boku] (you are male, right?) can be dropped.

And if I am not wrong, the same goes for objects as well. It is implied that you are talking to 'your lover', so あなた [anata] / お前 [omae] (you) can be dropped too.

So 'da' 'links' 'I' to 'you'.

よ [yo] is used to make assertions, which means you stress the sentence/fact you are making. It is used by female and (preferably) male.

[Hope I answer your question. Anyone, please correct me if I am wrong.]

the difference 2008/9/25 12:08
Aishiteru is strong love like permanent relationship. For my husband,I use this one. For lesser like new girlfriend or boyfriend it is more common to say Daisuki.
