  • Tell me what ○○ means.

    play icon

Tell me what ○○ means.で
「○○の意味を教えて」になります。

tell me:私に教えて
what ○○ means.:○○がどういう意味か

what ○○ meansは動詞の後に来ているので
平叙文の語順になっています。

通常の疑問文では

what does ○○ mean?になります。

参考になれば幸いです。

  • What is the definition of (word)?

Definition' refers to a statement of the meaning of a word or term.
Therefore, asking for the definition or meaning is the same thing.

A: What is the definition of stale?
B: It means that something is no longer fresh.
Definition' は単語の意味を示す表現です。
したがってdefinitionまたはmeaningを求めることは同じことです。

  • What does (OO) mean?

  • Could you please explain the meaning of (OO)?

  • Could you tell me a synonym of (OO) please?

The quickest and easiest wayb of asking for more information about a word is just to say,
"What does that mean?"
You may prefer ask for the meaning 'to be explained.'
"Could you please explain the meaning of (OO)?"
Asking for a synonym is another alternative. Some words are extremely difficult to define but you may know one of the synonyms the teacher thinks of.
単語に関するさらなる情報を一番速く、簡単に尋ねるには、以下のように言うことです。
"What does that mean?"
(それはどういう意味ですか?)

意味を説明してもらうように尋ねたいこともあるかもしれません。
"Could you please explain the meaning of (OO)?"
((OO)の意味を説明してくださいますか?)
同義語を尋ねてみるのも、別の方法です。定義するのが極めて難しい単語もありますが、先生が思いつく同義語のひとつは知っているかもしれません。

1.Do you have any idea what the word ( ) means?
2.Please could you explain what his word means?
3.I am not sure about the meaning of this word.Could you tell me what it means?

These are all acceptable means of asking someone to explain the meaning of a word.Another subtle way to ask for an explanation is :

これらはすべて人に単語の意味を説明して欲しいことを尋ねる言い回しです。

他には、「この単語は面白い響きがありますね。どういう意味か教えて頂けますか?」とさりげなく聞くこともできます。
