62. About くらい or ぐらい

About how much? About how many?

  • Sometimes the く turns into a ぐ after harder consonants.

お客様はどのくらい来ましたか?
okyakusama wa dono kurai kimashita ka?
About how many customers came?

 

ええと、100人くらい来ました。
eeto, hyaku nin kurai kimashita.
Let me see, About 100 people.

You can use this with time:

8時ぐらい
hachi ji gurai
about 8 O’clock

Or counting anything:
2匹くらい ni hiki kurai – about two (animals)
10冊ぐらい juu satsu gurai – about 10 books
