The 気's

I'd like to make a list of some of these phrases that you all have come across. This week, I'll be starting my vacation, so updates will be sporadic from Wednesday, but let's keep this list going in the meantime.

気になる
気にする
気にかける

Looking at various examples, these seem to basically convey the same nuance. However, I have always associated 気になる as being something that is a trifling, relatively unimportant thing --like a bug bite. Whereas 気にする has always seemed more general and encompassing when it comes to things that bother you, i.e. the ubiquitous 「気にするなよ。」 「Don't worry about it!」 Please share your experiences with these three phrases and add to the list of expressions below.

気をつかう: Attentive of X; care about X
気にとめない: Ablivious of X
気にやむ: Anxious; lose sleep over X
気をうしなう: Faint
気をぬく: Relax

I left a post on the japanese learner's boards on mixis on the difference between 気になる and 気に入る.

Good stuff, and entirely ビミョウ!

気を, entered into alc.co.jp's dictionary, comes up with numerous useful examples of 気 words.

気をそらす, to distract, sounds useful.

You're on to me, anon. I often time search for examples via alc and use them on this site.

But I've never heard 気をそらす, though I have seen it in the dictionary.

Awesome! Can you send me a link via mixi or maybe post something here?

PS- Do you mean 気になる and 気にする?Doesn't 気に入る mean to be interested in or like something?

ss said...

I'm pretty sure I've heard 気になる used occasionally to mean something roughly equivalent to "be interested in". Never looked it up but that was the meaning I inferred. Ideas?

jljzen88 said...

Ah, I guess it does have a similar nuance of "feel inclined to X"...whereas 気に入る looks to have a "like" or "pleases" nuance.

What really gets me is how there are so many ways to say "feel like X"

~と感じている
~気がする
~気にする
~気になる

DAMN!

my thread got axed at some point :-(

Nice one!

Also while talking about 気に入る。

When it is spoken in informal speach it is pronounced きにいる Right?

1級に向かってる俺は すべてのを「気」に関する表現を勉強してて リストはなげぇよ
といっても

JーJ辞書を引けば意味は身につけやすいと思ってるが 区別は微妙だろう。。。

そうだね...前は引いたのに、どれが日常会話か分からなくて、すぐにやめてしまった。

面倒くさがりかもしれない。

とにかく、便利なやつを覚えたら、ここに書いてくれない?

「Also while talking about 気に入る。

Yeah! I used to say 気にはいる!Do you come across it often?
