How do you say “May I kiss you?” in Japanese

Japanese people are very polite. You may want to ask permission when you want to kiss someone. In Japanese, when asking permission the form is ‘a verb +てもいい? te-mo-i-i’. It is ending with double ‘i’, and ‘i-i’ is pronounced in two syllables (two vowels) or sometimes it sounds like a long vowel like ‘ea’ of ‘seat’.

Note: in Japanese pronunciation, ‘e’ is always the same sound ‘e’ of ‘pen’ or ‘ea’ of ‘dead.

Grammatically, you need to use the conjugation ‘te-form’ and add ‘mo-i-i’. I am not going to talk complicated grammar here though.
