    Can the word "ama" be used in an offensive way? I know it generally means "but" or "however". I would like to know if it has any offensive uses though.
    Thanks,
    Mae

    Not that I can think of. What makes you think it might have an offensive use?

    I'm going on a limb here, but perhaps you are thinking of 'am' (where the -a is an affix).

    'Am' is slang, an offensive word for a woman's genitalia. It's quite vulgur.

    Ah… :D
    It had never occured to me before, but yes ama is also the dative of am. But anyway, you shouldn't really worry about that.
