What does "Jama shinaide " mean in japanese an can you break it down aswell?
- SayonaraLv 78 years agoFavorite Answer
邪魔 jama = disturbance, interference, meddling, butting in
しない shinai= negative of to do
しないでください shinaide kudasai = polite form of saying: don't
しないで shinaide = shortened, colloquial version of the above
That is what one says to someone who tries to meddle, interfere, disturb, be a general nuisance.
In English, we'd tell someone like that off in ways like:
Get off my back!
That's none of your business!
Leave us/me/him/her/them alone!
(you get the drift)

It basically means "don't bother me!" or "don't be an interference!
Shinaide is the casual way of saying do not (blank).
Suupu wo ryou shinaide kudasai=Don't cook soup please.Source(s): Been studying Japanese for 8 months
