口喧嘩くちげんか(kuchigenka)” means “Quarrel or Argument” and which has been used as the meaning of “an angry argument between two or more friends or family members”. The basic ways to use it is that “わたしは___と口喧嘩くちげんかをする。(I quarrel with ___.)”, etc For instance, “わたしかれ口喧嘩くちげんかをする。(I quarrel with him.)”, “わたし友達ともだち口喧嘩くちげんかをする。(I quarrel with my friend.)”, “わたしはは口喧嘩くちげんかをする。(I quarrel with my mother.)”, etc. The tips for using it are that “口喧嘩くちげんか” is used as the meaning of “PEOPLE ONLY USE THEIR MOUTH IN FIGHTING”, because “くち” means “MOUTH”, unlike “喧嘩けんか“. Everyone could use “口喧嘩くちげんか” as casual, polite and formal such as “おかあ口喧嘩くちげんかしたよ。(I quarreled with my mom.)” as casula and “はは口喧嘩くちげんかしました。(I quarreled with my mom.)” as polite and formal. Furthermore, native speakers often omit “を” of “口喧嘩くちげんか” in daily conversations as casual (and pilite).
