Hey guys! I was tooooo tired to write! Did you miss me? Well, I hope you did Few things scattered here and there, so yeah, I was busy....
BUT NOW I HAVE SUMMER VACATION!!!! 4 month duration.... can Americans tell me how it's like for them? Thanks.
Back to the lesson, I last told you about いーけいようし; the adjectives ending in 'い' and now you also know about declension... prepare to be impressed, planet! There is another type of けいようし which is MUCH easier, trust me! These.... end with ’な’
There are only two types, and this is the last one! How cool is that??
Here it comes....
ーな けいようし(Adjectives ending in な)
** Okay, there is a HUGE difference between 'すきな' 'ような';
かのじょはおもちゃがすきです。 She likes toys
あかちゃんのようなをなきます。 I cry like a baby.
すきな- Facebook-style like
ような- Comparison/valley girl speech like
With that settled... we have more
The word is called 'declining'; using declension for an adjective. Sigh, English
Okay, for negating sentences, easy as !
Take this sentence-:
きょうはしずかなです It is calm today.
If it's stormy outside; say...
Easy, right? Just write ではありません like normal. A light, easy moment!
Which is EXACTLY why there are different ways of saying the SAME sentence....
WTF am I talking about?
WTF I am talking about
So you see, with なーけいようし; we cannot just slap the adjective anywhere we want to; mainly because it sounds stupid & being the laughing stock sucks. This is why you cannot say this-:
あのすしはおいしいでした (Correct form-: あのすしはおいしかったです。）
This seems incredibly pointless, right? So it seems... but seriously, I leave it to you; say the sentence right above thrice without tiring yourself. I dare you!
Done? I thought so...
Why the bold sentence is absolutely wrong-:
A- It's tiring as hell to speak it
B- The subject and adjective are not in agreement.
B happens because of A. It's called causation!, What B means is that ’これ’ & ’きれいな’ are just not compatible; like fire and ice or psychic-types and dark-types. Yeah, I love Pokemon How to correctly say said sentence; there are 2 ways-:
これはきれいたたみですね！- This is a freaking beautiful mat!
このたたみはきれいなです！- This mat is beautiful.
The adjective is in correspondence with the subject always.’The adjective will always end in 'な’ if the subject is これ、それ、あれ and if it is この、その、あの; delete 'な’
This requires a little practice
由紀子さんはきれいなです。 Miss Yukiko is pretty.
満ちるくんと美代子ちゃんは小さなです。 Michiru and Miyoko are small.
桜ちゃんはしずかしょうじょです。 Sakura is a quiet girl.
Okay, I'll simplify for you Every time the adjective is BEFORE the noun, add 'な’; if there is NO noun, do not write 'な’.
If adjective is BEFORE noun, 'な’. If NOT, no 'な’
That logic is used for これ and この. この always precedes a noun saying what is is, but これ is more direct; it explains succinctly what said thing is.
Past and its negation
Now that we know how to express ourselves in successfully calling out bullshit. we can now pat ourselves in the backs- we're awesome! But what about complex stuff, like memories; old flames, good old days, hell even what you ate for last night! Who wouldn't want to reminisce
Question- how? Well...
いつ私はこどもでした、おかしはたいせつなでした Means- When I was a kid, sweets were important.
If only But still, just like any normal sentence, just add でした after the adjective. Done
Now what if what you said was utter bullshit and your significant other just barges in with his/her/their story? Well...
Long story short, they weren't!
So yeah, just that. Add ではありません before でした. That was a real breather, wasn't it?
So... we're finished! Summary-:
なーけいようし is the 2nd type of adjectives in Japanese. It varies based on whether nouns are there or not. If there is a noun, ’な’; if none, do not write ’な’. Like suffixes
Sentence structure for above-:
Sentence structure otherwise-:
Negation of present sentence-:
Past negation (disproving former bullshit)
Phew! I wish it wasn't so long... but you guys are smart enough to figure it out! Have fun!
