RE: Thanked you??

... look back to classical japanese we have the construction adjective + gozaru(aru). A familiar one should be hayai = ohayou gozaimasu another one is arigatai = arigatou gozaimasu. Then there are some other conjugations for the other adjectives. If I remember correctly it should be like: ai : hayai ...

RE: Thanked you??

... ? You're not the first person I've heard say that, and to be honest I'm wondering where you folks are hearing it! It's simply a past tense form. "Arigatai" = "rare, unusual → precious, valued → appreciated". It is, in fact, possible to use "arigatai" and "arigatakatta" as expressions of gratitude, ...

RE: About ending sentences with "te" form

The final verb isn't "kurete", it's "arigatou" which doesn't end with a "te".


Except "arigatou" isn't a verb, it's an adjective (from "arigatai"), though based on a verb stem. The final (and missing) verb is "gozaimasu".

RE: Keredomo, keredo, kedo

... a fog cloud has lifted. it has nothing to do with please or thank you. The thank you is the arigatou that preceeds gozaimasu. ARIGATOU GOZAIMASU = arigatai desu. of course no one would ever say it that way now. but it was used quite frequently a long time ago..

RE: English in Japanese

... just because i came across it recently... sci.lang.japan FAQ: 6.12.1 6.12.1. Is arigatou related to Portuguese "obrigado"? No. Arigatou comes from arigatai, a conjunction of the verb aru, "to have", with the ending gatai which means "difficult". The "ou" ending comes from the conjunction of the ...
