is this ok?

Postby lomagu » Tue 07.12.2005 4:55 am

I want to say, "don't assume it's ok."

Can I say, 「当然大丈夫だと思うな」?

I know using 「な」 sounds strong, but that's the sort of feeling I want.

ok, posting again. I found 仮定する in my searches. Would it be better to use this?

「油断(ゆだん)するな」とかそんな感じでしょうかね。
「油断は禁物(きんもつ)」、「油断大敵(たいてき)」でもよさそうです。

I'm not sure.. by 「油断」 do you mean "careless"? I don't know if that's really what I mean. Maybe I should be more specific. I want to say, "Don't assume everything is ok." where 'everything' is a bad situation. I don't want this person to think the situation has gotten better.

I don't want this person to think the situation has gotten better.

「状況(じょうきょう)が好転(こうてん)した訳(わけ)ではない。」ということを言いたいわけですね。
では改めて"Don't assume it's ok."の訳(やく)を考えてみましょう。
・「タカ(高)をくくるな。」
・「なんとかなると思うな。」
・「万事(ばんじ)順調(じゅんちょう)だと思うな。」
・「順風満帆(じゅんぷうまんぱん)だと思うな。」
・「未(いま)だ暗中(あんちゅう)模索(もさく)と思え。」
・「未だ五里霧中(ごりむちゅう)と思え。」

「タカをくくるな」が近いかと思います。
