"What was that?"

I was driving and there was a big truck in front of me. The truck was dropping small rocks! They could break my windshield! In the morning, I just watched a commercial of windshield repairing company, but I could not remember the name. That is why I said this phrase.

っけ sounds like "I know it, but I cannot remember it. What was that!" It sounds very conversational.

Polite form: なんでしたっけ?
But use the phrase below if you are supposed to be more polite: なんでしたか?

  1. Nice blog, I think it would be great if you could put the pronunciation of those Japanese words so for those who can't read hiragana and katakana could learn from your blog as well ;)
