Déjà vu = デジャブ?

Post by suko » Fri 08.03.2007 5:04 pm

Do the Japanese have an equivelant for Déjà vu (as in "the illusion of having previously experienced something actually being encountered for the first time.")?

Is it simply the カタカナ for it? デジャブ? or is it in 漢字?

日本人は「déjà vu」から言葉がありますか。「déjà vu」は何か既見た。

既視感 【きしかん】 (n) deja vu [G][GI][A][W]
デジャヴュ (exp) (fr:) deja vu; something already seen or experienced [G][GI][A][W]

The Koujien has デジャビュ.

どうもありがとう。

I was just wondering, seeing as it’s a French word, heh.
