Man, aren't we becoming advanced?
Good day, guys! Now we do another particle
, but this kind of our only plausible way to communicate well with the locals; and maybe even impress someone enough to be your boy/girl/etc. friend
So yes, you'll get the drifts, but you got this far! I know you can do this!
So, today's new particle is called 'が’ Just か with a てんてん, this is an affirmative particle of sorts; which often answers or affirms a question.
This particle always shows us the object
of a sentence.
What is an object?
It is the thing after the subject we talk about. Eg-:
This is my new chair
The chair is MINE which is why I am the subject. But WHAT do I have? A chair. That's our object!
Now, to do in Japanese. Because English has a very informal article placement and conjugation, it may be tricky... anyway; go ahead and read this!!
Okay, this was a conversation between 2 mother cats. Now count how many time I used が. Found em? Excellent! Particle が is used as an object indicator; depicting a THING/PERSON that belongs to someone.
Out there is my office.
Here が is used in such sentences because に is our place indicator; WHERE something is, whereas が tells us WHAT we are talking about that we care for. Object is always in the middle of the sentence.
In the laptop there are photos.
が is also used in some question,, namely with these words-:
How to use-:
- Which vegetable is carrot?
Which shoes are red?
Who is Tanaka-san? (lit. Which person is Tanaka-san?)
- Who is your favourite actress?
A note about formal and informal stuff-:
Who is that dashing boy?
Yeah, I'm guessing we're done. Summary-:
が shows the object of our sentence.
It also is used after the question words which start with ど.

So, we're finished! I'll be wrapping up these lessons very soon, it'll be very very close, I promise
