'は' and 'が'

Post by Nachons » Thu 08.02.2007 9:10 am

I was just reading up about using は and が in the same sentence, and I was just wondering if somebody could check if this is right.

グレグ の 犬 は 耳 が ちいちい です。
Greg's dog has small ears.

Any help is much appreciated.

Ah I see, thanks.

It's just in my dictionary it says 'ちいちい - 小ちい = small'

Also, I can't seem to find the exact meaning of chiisai.

Perhaps you're misreading さ for ち - it should say ちいさい (小さい) - those two kana are easy to confuse for beginners.

Aha, I appear to have made an idiot out of myself. :D

Guess you learn from your mistakes.

Thank you both.

Haha, Japanese is mostly learning from mistakes. Being so different from English, we are all bound to make some.

'Wa' and 'Ga' may seem complicated at first, but once you really get into the language and have heard enough sentences, you'll catch on.
