I’ve heard ころ わ ください before and I was wondering if the わ is needed or if it just adds politeness or something like that? The same goes for それ わ ください。

ありがとうございます!

I have always heard to add an ‘O’ after kore and before kudasai too. kore o kudasai. Its the correct way. Anyone else have a comment about this? S/P team?

I have heard people say what sounds like, “Sore…” when they are in a tight spot or sticky situation. Would that be the equivalent of saying, “That is to say…” When you don’t really know what you want to say.

Or am I mishearing the word?
