The basic suffix attached to a name in Japanese; indicates some respect, approx. equivalent of Mr. or Ms. Leaving off suffixes is disrespectful, so if you have no other suffix, -san is preffered.

English preposition meaning "without" (from the French word: same spelling and definition).

"Sans" has taken on an overly used pseudo-hip status in counter-culture enclaves to replace the word "without" in even the most mundane of circumstances.
Dustin the vegan ordered his tofurkey sandwich, "Sans mayo, please!"

Lola said she couldn't get a ride out of Bushwick since she was "sans cash".

internet hipsters started the habit of spelling complete sentences and proper nouns sans capitalization. the annoying trend has been picked up by marketing designers sans originality.

Japanese equivalent of Mr/Mrs/Ms. Most often used with a person's surname, less commonly used with a person's given name. This is used for someone you do not know very well, like a classmate who isn't your friend and isn't in a higher grade, or a co-worker who isn't higher status than you.
Saitou-san wa Tookyoo ni imasu. (Mr/Mrs/Ms Saitou is in Tokyo.)

Attachable suffix used in Japanese language, usually with proper nouns or pronouns. Most often attached to the end of a personal name or surname, but never a nickname. For nicknames, see -chan.
