We are here again covering some more Japanese onomatopoeia! In terms of the way they sound, #1 is hilarious in our opinion. Let’s check them out and how to use them!
1- プニプニ – squishy / springy / bouncy
The skin of the baby is squishy and it feels nice.
2- フラフラ – unsteadily / shakily
When I stood up earlier I got dizzy and unsteady.
3- グリグリ – pressing or rubbing with turning movements
Shall I rub your shoulders with my elbow?
4- スラスラ – smoothly / easily
I want to speak Japanese fluently / smoothly!
5- どんどん – rapidly / quickly
I’m in good shape today so let’s get some work done.
#3 can be replaced with ゴリゴリ
#4 can be replaced with ペラペラ
We hope you enjoyed this JapaBit! Till next time! またねー
