Words of the Day VIII

Off milk

Today, I bought milk that was best before a week ago. I still drank it, it was delicious.


Japanese Word of the Day is: ミルク
                                          Miruku

English Word of the Day is:  Contraindication


Miruku is the Japanese word
for milk. It's a transliteration, which means the sounds of the donor language are made to fit to the host language, and the meaning is kept the same. Milk!

Contraindication is a medical term used to mean 'it is not recommended you do that'. Contra meaning against, and indicate meaning indicate. "Drinking milk that has expired is contraindicated, but, you most likely won't die, Mr. Juan."



Miruku in a sentence: みどりミルクを飲んでみったらどうですか。
                                 Why don't you try and see what this green milk is like?.


Well, that's about it for me today. Tell me in the comment section if you've ever forgotten to change the 'tell me in the comment section' section of your blog from the last day.

  6. Doubt I'll be able to remember that word (or at least how to spell it). Hopefully you didn't have to pay full price for that milk. And my balls are still very alive fortunately :)
