The meaning of the verb

Postby fifth-of-seven » Tue 06.01.2010 8:09 pm

Minasan, konichiwa.

I was studying some kanji on another site and came across this sentance:

私のへやにはベットとテレビとつくえが あります. Okay, it's about a video and TV in a room. The problem or question I have is the meaning of the verb. I belive it means to turn on but I am not certain of the conjigation.

Any ideas?

Arigato in advance.

It's actually not a verb but a noun - 机 (つくえ) which means desk.

You can know that because in テレビとYがあります, Y has to be a noun.

I'm curious what led you to believe that it had to be a verb?

To be honest, I'm not sure. I don't know as much as I should.

Thank you all for the feedback.
