How do you say “I have a sore throat.” in Japanese?
Today’s phrase is :
I have a sore throat.
If you want to speak politely, you can say :
- I have … ＝ わたしは … がある watashiwa … ga aru
- a sore throat ＝ のどの痛み nodono itami
The literal translation of “I have a sore throat.” is “わたしはのどの痛みがある (watashiwa nodonoitamiga aru)”, but we do not usually say like that.
We usually say “のど痛い” when we have a sore throat. “のど (nodo)” means “throat” and “痛い (itai)” means “hurt”.
