I didn't know that. It's difficult word. I think most Japanese don't know the word. We don't use "如才ない" in a conversation. Did you see the word in a novel? I looked up "如才ない" in the dictionary. I should memorize it... :P

Really? My coworker told me it was a good word. I'll keep in mind that no one uses it! Hee.

We do use this.

"Kare wa josainai ne".

okay, one vote for, one vote against.

I'll try to remember the word.
