|Amatuka||Appeared in JLPT 2 (Select particle, が)|| |
|Miki||smack v. smack of sth : slight flavour of sth お尻ぺんぺんも同じスペル。|| |
|Amatuka||I think it would normally be the plural "smacks of"|
"A distinctive flavor or taste.
A suggestion or trace."
I'm not sure it's a great translation though.
|Miki||I was wrong. I mixed up the lines for v with that of n. It is for n-explanation but it should be used in singular according to an OXFORD dictionary. In contect "smack" is V after "This soup". いい訳に見えるけど。|| |
|ixtli||Not sure if the issue is resolved, but the phrase is always "X smacks of Y". Its a good enough translation, though, as a native speaker i can say this phrase has become _slightly_ archaic.|| |
