sugoi and sugoku

Lisa brought a cake she had baked over to her friend Yoko’s house. Yoko said, “Waa sugoi! Did you bake it yourself, Lisa? sugoku oishii.” After that, Yoko started to repeat sugoi in many of her sentences, in cluding “Asatte sugoi taifuu ga kurundatte,” “Kinoo mita eiga sugoku kowakatta,” “Nichiyoobi ni Harajuku ni ittara sugoi hito datta,” and, “Tonari no koneko sugoku kawaii no.” Lisa realized that sugoi is a very useful word that can be used in both good and bad situations. However, overuse of sugoi should be avoided as it may make the speaker’s speech sound childish.
