Recently I’ve noticed the word なうbeing used on twitter quite a lot. It comes from the English word “now” and is pronounced “now” too. People use it to describe what they are doing at that moment in time, or where they are.
For example: 「テレビ見てるなう」(I’m watching TV) or 「しぶやなう」(I’m in Shibuya).
How long will this fad last? Who knows. でも、面白いね ^ ^
