I choose you!

…Tiny red blob?

取捨選択
shu.sha.sen.taku

Literally: take – throw away – choose – choose

Alternately: Deciding to accept or reject something; sorting through options; separating the good or necessary from that which is not.

Notes: Unlike some of the more literary compounds and sayings we cover, this prosaic yojijukugo is likely to be found in a variety of contexts.

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
