View topic - Common Grammar
So my idea is to post common grammar here, that you see quite alot of, but which may not be explained in the more basic japanese lessons. I'll get us started, and I hope people will contribute something to help make this thread into a sort of 'mini-article'.
"kamo shirimasen" - Used at the end of a sentence, it means "may".
"ashita wa hare deshou ka"
"ame kamo shirimasen ne"
"Do you think tomorrow will be sunny?"
"It may rain."
Of course, this translation is very stiff and without context not very good, but I think you get the idea. Also note that 'shirimasen' could be replaced with 'shiranai'. Keep an eye (or ear) out next time you watch anime or read manga, and I bet you hear it alot once you start to listen for it.
If I get some good feedback and participation by others I'll see if I can research some more.
