Etymology 2Edit

  This entry lacks etymological information. If you are familiar with the origin of this term, please add it to the page per etymology instructions. You can also discuss it at the Etymology scriptorium.

SuffixEdit

(hiragana くん, rōmaji -kun)

  1. suffix for boys' names
  2. indicates respect
  3. indicates familiarity
Usage notesEdit

-kun is often used as a suffix when calling someone. The listener is lower or the same level in social position and is often, but not always, male.

Etymology 3Edit

Voiced form of kimi due to compounding in suffixation.

SuffixEdit

(hiragana ぎみ, rōmaji -gimi)

  1. indicates respect
     (ちち) (ぎみ)
    chichi-gimi
    your father
Usage notesEdit

There is no direct translation in English – as with other Japanese honorifics, it might roughly correspond to dear, as in “your dear father”.

Respectful suffixes also serve to indicate whose relative is in question: rather than “my father” and “your father”, one would say 父 (“father”) and 父君 (“dear father”).

Used of nobles. Attaches to close family relationship nouns such as (mother), (sister), (daughter of a noble family, princess).

Etymology 4Edit

/kindi/ → /kinzi/. From older きむぢ (kimudi).
