How to say "About" in Japanese? ^_^ For example "About 20 minutes" Also, how to say "(I will come in) more 20 minutes" [I learnt it from a Japanese friend but I forgot and the only thing I remember is it started with "あと"] And also, how would you say this in Japanese- "About him/her" [ex. This song is about him]. ありがつおおきに!(<-I know it is Osaka dialect and is used by older people but I love saying it rather than "ありがとうございました" ever since I saw the movie "Hotaru no Haka") ^_^

"About 20 minutes"=やく20ぷん "(I will come in) more 20 minutes"=あと20ぷん(でいくよ) "About him/her"=かれ/かのじょについて or かれ/かのじょについての This song is about him=これは、かれについてのうたです。

about = 約(やく) だいたい ほぼ、 ほど、おおかた  following "ato"は あとやく(標準的)、あとだいたい あとおおかた が代表的 です  あとやく20分(ほどで)/あとおおかた20分(で)・あとだいたい20分(ほど)と使います    ちなみに ありがつおおきに、ではなく、ありがとおおきに/おおきに/おおきにありがと は京言葉(Kyoto District) ちなみ大阪弁(Osaka Distict)はマイド、マイドオオキニです.またはありがとさんです
