Sample text

Remember, every verb has a string of kana called okurigana, which you can modify to conjugate the verb. If you convert the verb to Roman characters (called 「ローマ字」 in Japanese) and it ends in either "iru" or "eru", then it is usually a ru-verb. For example, 「⾷べる」 is romanized as "taberu" and since it ends in "eru", it is a ru-verb. Another example of a ru-verb is 「起きる」, which romanizes to "okiru". All other verbs that do not end in "iru" or "eru" are u-verbs. However, there is just one snag here.

Not tall building. (3) ⾼かったビル。- Building that was tall. 4. ADJECTIVES CHAPTER 3. BASIC GRAMMAR (4) ⾼くなかったビル。- Building that was not tall. You can also string multiple adjectives successively in any order in any form. (1) 静かな⾼いビル。- A quiet, tall building. (2) ⾼くない静かなビル。- A not tall, quiet building. Note that you can make the same type of descriptive noun clause as we have done with na-adjectives. The only difference, of course, is that we don't need 「な」 to directly modify the noun. In the following example, the descriptive clause 「値段が⾼い」 is directly modifying 「レストラン」.

Example 4 アリス: その⼈が買うんじゃなかったの?- Wasn't it that that person was the one to buy? ボブ: ううん、先⽣が買うんだ。- No, it is that teacher is the one to buy. Alice: Wasn't that person going to buy? (Expecting that the person would buy) Bob: No, the teacher is going to. (Explanatory) Example 5 アリス: 朝ご飯を⾷べるんじゃなかった。- It is that breakfast wasn't to eat. ボブ: どうして?- Why? Alice: Should not have eaten breakfast, you know. (Explaining that breakfast wasn't to be eaten) Bob: How come? Don't worry if you are thoroughly confused by now, we will see many more examples along the way.
