Do you have a translation question?

kazo=父=means what?

Postby MenomaMinx » Sun 08.14.2005 9:33 pm

Ran into this new word using my cannon word tank G50's Japanese/Japanese dictionary. The jump function does not allow me to read the definition {which is almost entirely compound kanji}. This word does not exist in any of my other dictionaries and I can't find online either.

It uses the same kanji as chichi which makes me think it's some variation on the word "Daddy" but why with such a simple everyday word be so hard to find in all these different dictionaries if that's the case?

Has anyone encountered this word before?

What does it mean?

It appears that it's just a old way to refer to your father
