A word that is commonly mistaken to literally mean 'cute'. Sorry to say this, but it ACTUALLY literally means 'good face'.

Use it in conversation and the other person will likely feel like clawing their face off.
(Also it's actually pronounced 'Kawa-ee', not 'kawa-I')
PersonA: OMG THAT DRESS IS SOOO KAWAII!!
PersonB: ...It has a good face? WHAT.
PersonA: NO IT MEANS CUTE GET IT??
PersonB: *stares and leaves*

Means "cute" or "pretty" in Japanese. Grossly overused by fat wapanese dorks in their futile attempts to woo their school's female Japanese exchange student(s).
Reality Check: Native Japanese don't use the word "kawaii" as much as you dorks do. Shut it down.

Means 'cute' in Japanese. Horrendously overused by fangirls on anything chibi. ANYTHING. Because they feel the need to repeat the three Japanese words they know OVER AND OVER. And they LEARNED said Japanese words by watching 'Naruto' in Japanese on YouTube ALL THE TIME.
KAWAII! I know Japanese now!

Kawaii - Adjective, Japanese in origin

Kawaii is Japanese for "cute". Many japanese culture/entertainment fans have taken the word and added it to their lingo to be used in english conversation.

It can be used in several sentence patterns, including a question such as "Kawaii ne?" meaning "Cute, isn't it?"
"My Domo-kun plushie is so kawaii!!"

"Kawaii!!!!" (Upon seeing a picture of an underage japanese schoolgirl)

"Kawaii ne?" (A cosplayer showing off his/her costume to others, or vainly looking in the mirror)
