-tte iu koto

"-tte iu koto" or "to iu koto" means "It/That means that..." Literally, it can be translated as "the thing called __".

e.g. Anata ga suki da tte iu koto.

It means I like you.

e.g. Kono shiken wa kantan da tte iu koto.

That means this exam is easy.

e.g. Dou iu koto desu ka?

What do you mean?
