sotto” vs. “kossori“:They Sound Similar For You?

Are “そっと(sotto)” and “こっそり(kossori)” similar for you? However, these are so different. You could be figuring out the way to use these after reading this. Let me introduce how to easily use these today!

そっと (sotto)

Gently / Softly

“そっと(sotto)” is “gently or softly” and which means that someone does not make noise to do something. You could use そっと___(verb) or そっと○○(noun)を___(verb). For instance, そっとく(gently put), そっとドアをめる(gently close the door), そっとあるく(softly walk), etc. Again, そっと means someone does not make noise to do something, so which is sometimes used as the meaning of “secretly”. For instance, そっとはいる(secretly enter), そっとる(secretly look), そっと携帯盗けいたいぬすむ(secretly steal a cell phone), etc. The meaning of these words is also not to make noise. Because “こっそり” means “secretly”. So that’s why we have to judge こっそりはいる(secretly enter) or そっとはいる(softly enter) from the sentence. Further, “___ をそっとしておく” is the popular word which means “leave ___ alone”.
