The MONK, standing at the temple gate, asks you a question : (a Zen koan) with his mouth. If you answer wrong, you can't get in.
to ask (BOOBOO: only used in a formal situation, where the wrong answer spells trouble: - the police questioned the suspect, the situation calls his authority into question)
a question - usually used in a structured setting: interview, trial, test.
BOOBOO: in casual conversation, people will say 尋ねる or 聞く instead of 質問.
problem - as in "environmental pollution", also as in "homework problem"
a doubt （疑問がある＝ I have doubts about it.)
|間||a period of time||DAY||日|
Gate has NOTHING IN THE CENTER, IT'S OPEN - so you can walk through it. There is an interval of one DAY between things, and you ask a question with your MOUTH.
