  • Today I would like to talk about the Japanese word “sake.”

    “Sake” is a generic term for beverages that contain alcohol, and it often referred to as “osake” by attaching a polite prefix “o.”

    When saying “sake” in English, it usually means “Japanese sake,” which is a kind of rice wine.

    There are various theories about the etymology of “sake,” but I will introduce the most accepted ones.
    (英語で “sake” と言うと、「日本酒」を指すことが多いです。)

    The theory says that “sa” is a prefix that fixes the rhythm of the word, and “ke” is the changed form of “ki,” which was the old name of “sake.”

    Since I drank a lot of alcohol yesterday, I’m a little fluffy.
