君

Today’s #kanji is #君, which is listed under the radical of #くち(口) and it is an compound ideograph between 尹 (a ruler) and 口 (an order). Then can you guess what 君 means?

Meaning: a ruler, a person’s master
Reading: クン、きみ(ぎみ)

君主(クンシュ): n. a monarch, a sovereign
君臨(クンリン)する: vi. to reign, to rule, to dominate
細君(サイクン): n. a person’s wife (archaic)
主君(シュクン): n. one’s lord, one’s master
xxx君(クン): suffix. for a (junior) person (used to be used for a teacher to call a male pupil but these days -さん is more common. Some bosses still use this to call their staff but most people dislike being called that way, so don’t use it unless you are sure that the person you are talking to doesn’t mind you using this suffix.)
暴君(ボウクン): n. a cruel tyrant, a brutal despot
幼君(ヨウクン): a young master, a boy prince

君(きみ): n. a ruler, a monarch; you (to address a person. It is often used in lyrics of songs written from a “male” perspective but I do not recommend using it unless you are sure that the person you are talking to doesn’t mind you calling that way.)
君(きみ)たち: n. you people, you guys
若君(わかぎみ): n. a young lord (archaic)
