    I need a word

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by LionofPerth, Sep 8, 2007.

    I need the word/phrase in Chinese/Mandarin/Japanese of 'troublesome child' or a version of child with strong negative connotations/intonation.

    Perhaps a word like punk comes close.

    you've come to the right place, I've got enough animes and manga magazines to give you a japanese translation of the word punk. What I know is very basic so I can't give you a full phrase. Kono Yatsu is what you're looking for

    Any specific relation to a sex or age, or is it more of a general phrase?

    So it just means punk, with Japanese you have to be sure there is no particular requirements, ie sex etc, with a word.

    Thanks.

    I don't know any unforntunately, and the Japanese is one idea, I could use Chinese or Mandarin, whichever sounds the harshest.

    Any idea on meanings?

    I tried a fewtranslation programs, and got nothing, it's like the word doesn't exist.
