Koan ?

Recommended Posts

What does "koan" actually mean ?  Some people use it every tenth word. I've asked but I never get a satisfactory answer that I can understand. I guess I am linguistically impaired.

It's like dookiki or thingamajig. It's the word you use when you can't think of the real word.

 

It can be used in place of anything.

 

Can you koan the koan ba? is a most annoying instruction.

When Filipinos have a brain fart and are unable to come up with exactly what they want to say, the will use "koan" or "kanung".
