What does X mean? How do you say X?
  • Hello! I usually use Xの意味は何ですか?and Xどういいますか? for these phrases. But I know there are other ways (どういう意味、など)。Which are the most common ways of saying this?
    Thank you!
  • Xって、どういう意味?
    Xとは、どういう意味ですか?

    For the other, do you mean "how do you say (English word/phrase) in Japanese", or something?

    For the first, yours is fine, if you mean to say like "How do you say (English word) in Japanese" I think you could add "日本語で" and mark X with は
    Xは日本語でどういいますか?
    (or 日本語でXは)

Howdy, Stranger!
