- dokkoisho: exclamation when sitting down? sth like whew, oof?
- Kirenaga - refers to "duration of sharpness" or "amount of edge retention". Mostly refers to Japanese cutlery, such as a Chef's knife.
- 切れ長 (kirenaga), which I've just added, means "a long slit", and most often refers to almond-shaped eyes. (That is, I think that's what it usually refers to, and a Google search for 切れ長 returns, first, pictures of people with almond-shaped eyes, and then information related to eyes and their appearance.) A Google search for '切れ長 包丁' (kirenaga + "knife"), on the other hand, does turn up things such as 切れ長で研ぎ (kirenaga de togi, "sharpen to kirenaga"), so the sense you are interested in does seem to be attested.

- kittennen as in Nani menchi kittennen!
- kittennnen is a combination of きってる kitteru, a casual form of 切る, and ねん nen which is a particle in Kansai Japanese indicating emphasis. I think the extra 'n' is just due to assimilation of the る (ru). The expression in the example is a form of メンチを切る which is an idiom in Kansai Japanese meaning "pick a fight" plus the particle "nen" which comes out to something like "Are you messing with me, punk?". Both the idiom and the particle are missing as of now...I may add them later... Haplology (talk) 14:55, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

- We have kirakira, but I've been reading about "kirakira names", modern names with trendy spellings: should this have a Japanese sub-entry?
