More people in Japan love taking a sauna to relax. I have heard the term “saunar/sauner” to describe a sauna lover here. I guess the word comes from the English suffix “-er”. This is a catchy word and some people see themselves “saunar/sauner” I am wondering if the word gets more popular and will be used worldwide. Given the fact that the sauna is originally from Finland, it may not be though.
I often go to sauna actually, but I do not see myself as “saunar/sauner”. Honestly, I do not want to use the new term because it sounds a little “strange” to me. It may be because the suffix “-er” in English useally to used with verbs. In Wiktionary, it can become “one who enjoys.”
(informal, added to a noun) One who enjoys.
