Discussion and comments
Formed from Vte + shimau.

Note that shimau conjugates as a normal godan verb.

Vte = -te form verb (死ぬ -> 死んで)
Amatuka
Note that the Vte+shimau can be shortened in one of two ways depending on the kana used for the 'te' form verb.

e.g. 死んでしまう → 死んじゃう
凍えてしまう → 凍えちゃう
Amatuka
Not always used in negative nuance.
Amatuka
