| Notes: |
|Often translated as "worried about," this verb is not always that dire and is often closer to "concerned about". For example, Inspector Sugishita of the TV program Aibou often says, "_____ koto ga ki ni natta," (I am concerned about the fact that _______.) as he tries to fit together the facts in his investigations.|| |

|japindian||When you say "feeling just came to me", it's not really feel worried about something. Does this mean that kininaru can be used to mean"on a whim" or "spontaneously". Also, is this used with verbs or nouns or is it just nankakinaru?|| |
