I'm starting this thread to share (what I think) are useful Japanese words (when I think of them).

First entry = ZUBON = trousers, from the French jupon.

We ran across this word in Japanese class at USF, but I can never find it in my Genki textbook when I want to refresh my memory.

Why is it important? If you say パンツ (pants) with the wrong inflection, you might be talking about panties... Oops! confused Oh, you *meant* to talk about shimapan? Well...nevermind then...

ズボン (n) (also written as 洋袴 and 段袋 during the Meiji period) trousers (fre: jupon); (P)
あなたは私のズボンをどうしたのですか。 What did you do with my pants?
