Word of the Day: Kerai 家来

17 Feb


Arabian Nights: Sabaku no Seirei Ou (SNES)

Word of the Day: 家来けらい (noun) A follower, servant, vassal, retinue, etc.

Notes: 家, by itself, means “house” and can be read as 「いえ」 or 「うち」. It’s a part of compounds like 家族かぞく(noun: family), 家庭かてい(noun: home, family, household), and 画家がか(noun: painter). 来 is the base of the verb 来るくる(to come) and appears in compounds like 未来みらい(noun: the future), 以来いらい(temporal/adverbial noun: since, henceforth), and 来訪らいほう(noun, suru verb: to visit).
