ganbaranakia..?

Postby genyue » Wed 04.20.2005 11:18 am

Um..

It goes something like that, I'm not sure if it's correct or not.
And most importantly, if you know what I'm trying to say or understand the meaning of it, please reply here ^^

I know part of the word belongs to 頑張る (ganbaru), but the -あなきあ (-anakia) suffix left me confused.

Hi,

It is 頑張らなきゃ ganbaranakya. The ending is a shortened form of なければなりません - must do...

So 頑張らなきゃ means 'gotta try hard' or something.

It means "...must" as in 勉強(べんきょう)しなければなりません。("I must study")

Yes. I may be wrong, but one way to learn this very useful phrase is:

なければ - if you don't do this...

なりません - it won't become

So 勉強しなければなりません could be thought of as 'if I don't study, I won't learn'

I don't know if that is the real meaning behind the phrase なければなりません, but it may be helpful in understanding?

Yea, when I studied that it was a mouthful. :S

Happy to see that -kya can be used instead of -kerebanarimasen. :)
