Tips to remember the Japanese word:
– Think of "okane" (γŠγ‹γ­) as derived from "o" (a polite prefix) and "kane" meaning metal, as in ancient times metal was used as a form of currency.
– You can further recall "kane" (money/metal) because it sounds like "coin."

– "γŠγ‹γ­" consists of the prefix "お" (o), which is a respectful or polite marker, and "かね" (kane), which originally meant metal.

Other words that mean the same thing:
– "きん" (kin) which directly translates to "gold."
– "γ‚Šγ‚‡γ†" (ryou) an historical term for money.
– "ι€šθ²¨" (tsuuka) means currency or general term for money.
– "金" (kane) a more direct term without the polite "o" prefix.

Alternate meanings/slang:
– "円" (yen) the Japanese currency, might be used indirectly to refer to money itself.
– "銭" (zen or sen) referring to coins, can sometimes be used to discuss small amounts of money.
