チャレンジ (romaji charenji)
- self-challenge, trying hard to do something
- try to do something, try and (verb)
This word has shifted meaning from the English word challenge from which it came. It refers to challenging oneself, or taking on a challenge, rather than an attack on something. Therefore this word should be used when the speaker is taking on a new task, a new challenge. It is not to be translated literally as the verb challenge, or one will end up with sentences like "he is a challenging person" or "I will challenge tennis."
