Example text

If one does not just speak as a representative of a group, but speaks in name of the entire group, rather than using the group われわれ suffixes 達 or 等, the special word "wareware", 我々 , is used. The most important thing to remember is to try to use personal pronouns as little as possible. Instead, if you're referring to someone of whom you know the name, use their name suffixed with さん instead. If you do not know their name, 42 find out what it is. The only polite way to refer to people is as people - don't refer to them as mere objects by using pronouns.

6. kakeru (tr) / kakaru (intr) - 掛ける / 掛かる These two verbs are part of the Japanese "Swiss army knife verbs" group. A select group of verbs that are paired with a thousand and one things to mean as か many things. The principle meaning for the transitive 掛ける is typically some か form of "to begin to", and for the intransitive 掛かる "to take/to require", but it's not always obvious. Examples of かける being used are things such as: 36 ひ 火をかける こえ 声をかける - to start a fire. - "to start a voice" → to call/greet someone.

Since ある means "to be" for animate verbs, and since the adjective ない means "is not". The informal negation for ある is actually this adjective, rather than あらん or あらない (this is not the case in several dialects, but for standard Japanese, it is). ラジオがない。 1) There is no radio. 2) I do not have a radio. The Japanese sentence can mean both things due to the fact that ある can mean two things. 4. suru - する We've already seen する as irregular verb, where I told you it meant "to do". This is true in general, but it's not the only meaning for する.
