Meaning:
mind, heart, attention
Pronunciation:


Example:
君はもう少し注意するべきだったのに。
kun wa mou sukoshi chuui suru beki datta no ni.
You should have been more careful.


Isn't 君 read kimi by itself, and kun when as an address?

Yes, that should be "Kimi wa mou sukoshi....."

And 田中君 is Tanaka kun.

ok, that's what I thought...

Hear that Zen? You need to update the example sentence for 意.

Thank you.

There is also the word 諸君 (しょくん) which a superior may call his underlings (used in the plural) in certain cases. It may be worth looking up and learning.

Didn't 君 use to mean "Lord" or "Emperor"?

most of the diminutives at one time were honorifics.
