あれ

Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
Our life's journey of self-discovery is not a straight-line rise from one level of consciousness to another. Instead, it is a series of steep climbs and flat plateaus, then further climbs. Even though we all approach the journey from different directions, certain of the journey's characteristics are common to all of us.

Usage notes

  • あれ mans "that yon" or yonder - something far off, removed from both speaker and listener. Contrast with それ, indicating something removed from the speaker but close(r) to the listener.
  • The hiragana spelling (あれ) is preferred to the kanji spelling (彼れ), which is rarely used.

あれ (romaji are)

  1. hey; oh
  2. Look!; There!

Noun

あれ (romaji are)

  1. 荒れ: stormy weather, tempest, chaps (of skin)
