🌏 Region(s): Kyushu (Kumamoto)
～たい : tai | define meaning
Used to add emphasis to preceding word or utterance.
"It's quite good", "Is it not good?"
"That kind of thing"
Possibly related to the ～たい -tai ending in standard Japanese expressions such as おもたい【重たい】 omotai "heavy; massive" or ねむたい【眠たい】 nemutai "sleepy", which ultimately derives from the adjective いたい【痛い】 itai "painful". However, there is no differential implication of objectivity or subjectivity in the Kumamoto ending.
