Example text

This section starts with transforming what we have learned so far into a more unassuming and politer form. In any language, there are ways to word things differently to express a feeling of deference or politeness. ". You may speak one way to your professor and another way to your friends. However, Japanese is different in that not only does the type of vocabulary change, the grammatical structure for every sentence changes as well. There is a distinct and clear line differentiating polite and casual types of speech.

Here are some examples of non-motion verbs and their targets (6) 猫は部屋にいる。 - Cat is in room. (7) 椅⼦が台所にあった。 - Chair was in the kitchen. (8) いい友達に会った。 - Met good friend. (9) ジムは医者になる。 - Jim will become doctor. (10) 先週に図書館に⾏った。 - Went to library last week. Note: Don't forget to use 「ある」 for inanimate objects such as the chair and 「いる」 for animate objects such as the cat. While the 「に」 particle is not always required to indicate time, there is a slight difference in meaning between using the target particle and not using anything at all.

There are a number of specific nouns (such as 「休み」) that are really verb stems that are used like regular nouns. However, in general we cannot take any verb and make it into a noun. For example, the following sentence is wrong. (誤) 飲みをする。- (This sentence makes sense but no one talks like this) However, a useful grammar that works in general for stems of all verbs is using the stem as a target with a motion verb (almost always 「⾏く」 and 「来る」 in this case). This grammar means, "to go or to come to do [some verb]".
