Onchi (音痴 – A Bad Signer)


  • Onchi

    音痴


    Recently, I learned that you can enjoy karaoke with Nintendo Switch.
    最近、Switch でカラオケができることを知りました。

    Also, the other day, I bought a microphone and an unlimited pass, then enjoyed karaoke at my home.
    そして先日、マイクと利用券を購入し、自宅でカラオケを楽しみました。

    Unfortunately, I noticed something.
    そこで気が付いたことがあります。

    Probably I am a person called ‘onchi‘ (音痴).
    私は「音痴」かもしれません。

    On/oto‘ (音) means “sound,” and ‘chi‘ (痴) means that someone does not have an ability to distinguish something or is a little dumb.
    「音」は “sound,” 「痴」は何かを判別する能力がはたらかないことや、頭の働きが鈍いことを意味します。

    That is to say, ‘onchi‘ means that someone does not have the ability to distinguish sounds, and it is often used to describe a person who is a bad singer.
    すなわち「音痴」とは、音に対する感覚が鈍いことであり、主に歌が下手な人のことを表す際に用いられます。
