Here are, perhaps, the most dramatic - and certainly the most explosive - signs of a cold.

Today's Lesson
SNEEZE / COUGH   くしゃみをする/せきをする


  • When you sneeze (verb) - for example, because of a cold or hay fever - air comes out of your nose and mouth suddenly, uncontrollably, and with great force.

    When you cough (verb) - for example, because of a cold or when choking - you push air out of your mouth (but not your nose) suddenly and with force, making a short, loud sound.

    The noun forms are also sneeze and cough.
  • sneeze(動詞)は、風邪や花粉症などの症状のひとつで、鼻と口から発作的に急激に息を吐き出すこと、つまり、くしゃみをする、という意味です。


    名詞形は、それぞれ sneezecough で、くしゃみ、せき、という意味です。
