My Japanese class progress is moving very slowly but hopefully helps build the fundementals right (well it better be🍍). Yesterday we learned more about the particle が 🦆🦆🦆🦆.
As my previous post indicated, が can be used to show like/ hate/ good at/ bad at. Check those details here.🙃
But apparently it can go beyond it (actually from my very accurate research が seems to be one of the most frequently used particles.🙀) . So today we will look at how it connects noun and verb.
See below examples:
- わたしは かばんがあります。I have a bag.
- わたしは 車が ありません。I don’t have a car.
- Mapleちゃんは英語が分かります。Miss Maple understands English.🐕
So all sentences use が to link the noun and verb (object of the verb). But wait: why it uses が but some other verbs use を?
Good question👯! Here you go. Compare below 2 sentences:
- わたしは この本を読みます。
- わたしは この本が分かります。
Feeeeel the difference and before you keep reading, try to make a guess on it~
Answer: the first verb with を indicates an actual action (well you know, read, take, ear, drink etc) and the second one with が indicate a state (have, know, understand etc). 🎈 Of course due to my poor vocabulary I cannot think of more with が and hence it’s good to get the rule right and when new ones come up I know what to use.🌟🤗💡🔮🎪
