Words of the Day XXI

Twenneh ONE!

Today, I woke up, and had horrible flash backs about my drunken antics from my party. I'm sorry reasonably younger girl, I'm sorry.



Japanese Word of the Day is: 学長

                                          Gakuchou

English Word of the Day is:  Nong


Gakuchou is the Japanese word for the head of a university.
The first character means school, and the second means boss, or leader. It is found in all business related Japanese terms. Kaichou, bucchou and so forth are all Japanese words describing a position of authority, and each has the 'chou' kanji. Interestingly, the chou part is also the kanji for long. Neat!

Nong means a silly person.

Gakuchou in a sentence: 
学長がスコットランド人が作ったウイスキを十七杯飯上がりました。

The Vice Chancellor of the University graciously lifted to his lips 12 shots of Scotsman-made whiskey.
  



Well, that's about it for me today. Tell me in the comment section if you match the Vice Chancellor's drinking abilities!

  1. 12 shots? Don't think I can do that. Never tried, never will.

  10. In some cases the gakuchou and the nong can be the same person.
