Attachable suffix utilized in Japanese language, typically with correct nouns or pronouns. Oftentimes connected to the end of an individual title or surname, but never a nickname. For nicknames, see -chan. by Valeria SantosReport definition
Japanese equivalent of Mr/Mrs/Ms. Most often used in combination with an individual's surname, less widely used with someone's provided title. This is utilized for some one you may not understand very well, like a classmate that isn't your buddy and it isn't in an increased class, or a co-worker that isn't higher standing than you. by PatriciaReport definition
