I've seen this sentence but can't translate it correctly.

Whose go is it?

  • 2
    In one sense, too bad this question was closed as "entirely answerable with a dictionary." I wonder if any of the closevoters looked up go in a dictionary? What a minefield for the learner! On the other hand, this underscores the need to show your research. Had this question been asked in a more Yoichi-like manner (with some dictionary excerpts pasted in), it may have been upvoted instead of closed.

  • @J.R. I agree with you that answerable by a dictionary is not the correct reason to close this question, but I am voting to leave it closed until we see a little more effort put into it.

"Whose go is it?" is an informal, colloquial expression meaning, "Whose turn is it?" (to make the next move in a game of chess or darts, for instance).

  • +1 I like your answer better, and you deserved first crack at it anyway! OP apparently had the same problem as you with the 'blockquote' element, and a subsequent edit trying to make sense of the result bollixed us all. Dec 26, 2015 at 15:24
