そう こう どう Explain

Postby kentaku_sama » Mon 11.24.2008 1:11 am

Recently,I learned about そう can someone give me some sentences and info with translation using そう こう and どう.

I knew dou was "how" but I wasn't sure on how to use it.

A textbook, or a grammar reference book like Dictionary of Basic Japanese Grammar, or even Tae Kim's site, will answer this kind of question.

These are my opinion.
これ =this        → こう =this way 
それ ≒it, that   → そう ≒so, that way
(それ points what is located in nearer distances between here and that.)
あれ =that → ああ =that way
どれ =what, whitch → どう =how

これはどうやって使いますか。
それはこうやって使います。
なるほど、これはそうやって使うのですね。
