OT: nihongo de hanasite kudasai (japanese lang question)


(sushiking) #1

Watashi wo yumemiru hito.

Is that stated correctly (grammar, etc) (romaji)?

I’m not to the point of writing (correct) sentences yet - words/simple phrases, no problem.

Hi,

Do you mean this “I’m a dreaming person.”, right?
If so, “Watashi wa yumemiru hito.” or “Watashi ha yumemiru hito.” are good.
“wa” and “ha” means same as “be, is, are,”, “wa” is pronunciation, “ha” is wrighting word.

Your “Watashi wo yumemiru hito.” means,

“A person who have a dream of me.” :slight_smile:

shouldn’t there be a “desu” in there somewhere?
like “watashi wa yumemiru hito desu” or something?

i haven’t studied japanese for a long time, but i’m sure “watashi wa … desu” would be used to say “i am …”.

of course, shige is actually japanese, so he knows better. :slight_smile:

desu is optional.


(Shige) #10

‘desu’ is polite expression. And usually, we add ‘desu’ at talking with others. For example, introducing myself, “Watashi wa Shige desu.”

No ‘desu’ expression is used for title of book, in a poet, and speaking to oneself. If you use "Watashi wa yumemiru hito.(no ‘desu’) in talking with someone, this way is very incomplete. Because, with ‘desu’ means ‘be’ in English, but adding ‘dewa-nai (or dewa-arimasen)’ means ‘be not’.
