i think the correct one here is GANBATTE.. ganbatte kudasai (pls.. try ur best.. or sth like that)

n btw.. i think there's a particular sign 2 express the double consonant sound.. if i'm not mistaken.. it's called TSU
(hiragana chart.. 4 row, 3 from the left)


as concerns jounetsu

JO falls into the 'contracted sounds' category (c the chart below)


hope i've been of some help ^^

n and m are the same alphabet character, so it just depends on how you would like to pronounce it

ohh i thought it's gambare then one o the users commented that it's gambatte so i could use gamabare too??wats more appropriate??


ganbatte is a short casual form for ganbatte kudasai, i think (please correct me)
that means please work hard!

i have no idea what gamabare is

I always thought ganbare is like the other tense of ganbatte... -"- I'm not too sure since I still can't find a place to learn japanese yet but yea.. I always thought it's some sort of different tense or something...

Arrgh... I'm not helping am I... =__= gomene...

my current only source of japanese-learning is the dramas I watch... so yea... the words I learned lately is not a good one... Things like kusoyaro...

The word "ganbare" is more of a command word that has a strong sound to it. It's like saying "DO IT!", so to speak, haha. "Ganbatte" is a more polite form than "ganbare", with the "-tte" making it seem like a suggestion, or a request. The whole phrase would be "ganbatte kudasai", but since it a bit long, it's shortened to "ganbatte" (kudasai = please)

Both these words are derived from the root word "ganbaru/ganbari masu", yet they all mean the same. It depends on the context and situation that changes what the word might actually mean.

Don't worry, you were on the right track of it being a different tense. lol...those words, huh? Those stick easily with everyone

domo... im new here.

sorry im bit confusing here...
how about ganbaremasu? is it imply the same meaning as ganbatte? what does "masu" mean...?
coz usually i heard(in movie)...ganbare masu is used when it dedicated to him/herself and ganbatte are used when dedicated to other person...eg:

ganbare masu = i'll try my best
ganbatte kudasai = good luck

correct me if im wrong.....

Huh...I haven't heard "ganbare" being used with "masu". That sort of defeats the purpose of saying the "masu" in the first place when "ganbare" is already an informal word made without the use of "masu". Ah, for the meaning...did you read my post above yours? Any form of "ganbari masu/ganbaru/ganbare/ganbatte" can be used for just about everyone.

"masu" doesn't mean anything, actually. It's a sign for verb usage, and polite forms of words and sentencing.

Haha, it's alright. Don't worry about the posting, we need more talk around here between the members. The only way people will learn is if they ask questions, so you're good.

Welcome to the group, by the way. And you're welcome =)

"Isshou kenmei (ni)" is used when you're doing something hard, or difficult. It's used with a verb, such as "isshou kenmei benkyou suru", which means "do your best at studying".
