Prefix

(hiragana , romaji o)
(hiragana , romaji go)

  1. Prefix indicating that the word is honorific. Often used to indicate that the word belongs or is related to the listener (as opposed to the speaker).
    Note: in many cases this prefix has been so completely absorbed into the word that it is inseparable from it, as in 御飯 (ごはん, gohan, rice) and doesn't really indicate anything.

Usage notes

This prefix is frequently written in hiragana. When the prefix is read as o- (as opposed to go-), it is almost exclusively written in hiragana.

This character is generally read as お- (o-) when it is prefixed to words considered to be of Japanese origin, as in 御水 (おみず, omizu, water), and ご- (go-) when it is prefixed to words considered to be of Chinese origin, as in 御主人 (ごしゅじん, goshujin, husband). There are numerous exceptions, however.
