-saseru -sareru te, nani?

Postby WakaiOtona » Mon 05.15.2006 7:01 am

From the way i've seen it used in anime, shows etc...

-saseru is when you let(?) or make(?) someone do something?(the verb)

-sareru is used when you are made to do something?(the verb)

jee, i can't express myself very well :(.

I've also seen -rareru but I haven't seen it enough to have a good enough idea of what it means...

Thanks for the help!

There's one long one like -saserareru, I think. Haha. I think it means 'forced to do ----', but don't take my word for it.

You were right about saseru.

Sareru is when something is done to the subject.

"Kare ga benkyou sareta" - He was studied (as opposed to "He studied [something else])

-rareru is how you make the potential form of -ru verbs. It's also how you make the "sareru" form of -ru verbs.

Watashi ha taberareta - I could eat. (past)
Watashi ha taberareta - I was eaten.

Sushi o tabesaseru. Allow to, or cause to eat sushi.
Sushi ga taberareru. Sushi is eaten. Or, Sushi can be eaten. Or, (I) can eat sushi.
Sushi o tabesaserareru. Be forced to eat sushi.

Does that make it any clearer? If not, please ask a more specific question, or give a specific example of what you don't understand. It's not too hard once you get the hang of it. There are books out there that list verbs and explain their conjugations and usages.
