I thought the japanese word for 'this' was kore... what's the difference?
"kono pen wa yasui desu." versus "Kore wa yasui desu."
kono must always be followed specifically by the noun you're describing... kore just means "this" more generally.
Like "This pen is cheap." (the first example) versus "This is cheap." (the second)
You wouldn't ever say "kore pen wa ...", and you wouldn't ever say "kono wa ..." etc. (Hopefully I got that right enough.) ;)
It's like the slashed circle in the NO-smoking sign
