Creative Ways To Correctly Use さからう, 楯突たてつく and

Did you know what the meaning of さからう, 楯突たてつく and る is? They sound quite similar, however native speakers use them depending on the situations. When figuring out what their meaning is, why don’t you use these words to your friends, teachers or even bosses? Let me introduce how you use them depending on the situations, today!

さからう (sakarau)


さからう means disobey, and basically, someone disobeys people or things. さからう is often used for people that mean your parents, brothers, sisters, school teachers, boss and etc. And さからう is used for things that mean “ながれにさからっておよぐ(to swim against the stream)”, “世間せけん風潮ふうちょうさからう(to swim against the tide) and etc, unlike 楯突たてつく.

楯突たてつく (tatetsuku)

Rebellious / Against

Using 楯突たてつく is the much stronger meaning than using さからう and 楯突たてつく is only used for people or people’s opinions who are especially “powerful” people such as your company’s boss, CEO, police, politician and etc. So, you won’t be able to say “ながれに楯突たてついておよぐ(to swim against the stream)”. Even though both さからう and 楯突たてつく would be able to be used for people, using 楯突たてつく is much stronger. After 楯突たてつく(being rebellious) to your boss, you may have to quite your company, unlike さからう. Only さからう(disobey) to your boss, your salary might go down.

る (oshikiru)


る means that someone insists on his/her on his/her way which he/she decided. He/she might not have disobeyed people or people’s opinions or he/she didn’t want to disobey people however what he/she decided looked he/she disobeyed people or people’s opinions as a result such as to get married someone who his/her parents hate. In this case, the proper word is る. That is not さからう and 楯突たてつく.
