Hey, you're Japanese right? Why do you guys add ~desu or ~dearimasu to your sentences and do you really say ~Auu, ~Nyu and ~ahaha? O.o?


If I remember correctly, desu means "it is". It's just a way of speech. As for the "~Auu" and "~Nyu" part, I highly doubt that normal Japanese citizens would really say that.


Ohh...I always thought desu was to add respect.

You can say it even youre not japanese. It's a catchphrase. It doesn't mean anything in Japan.... desu and su are to make it polite. And for the ~Auu part, Makoto from Kanon says it alot because she's a fox.(fox sounds are auu).

No not really. You know, I'm from Japan too. The catchphrase will prove that youre an otaku. or to make a sentence cute. that is.



sigh~ gotcha.. desu is not "it is", is he really japanese? desu is a " be " form of a verb, how come he didnt know what desu means? its a basic of a sentence... arimasu means "there is" -for none living things, imasu "there is" - for living things... evry people must know what desu means >.<... one of basic to be learn at japanese... sigh~ the others are juz expression as he said... desu is usually used when the sentence is formal.. there are many ways of speech in japan, formal way, casual, polite way, boastfull way, girl way, boy way... girls talk diferent, example, they use "atashi" when saying "I" or "watashi" ..in guys they say it "boku" -for polite, "ore"- for cool way/boast, "watashi"-too formal, "watakushi"-formal with high position... if u have questions u can ask me, im also studying they're language, i will sure go there in near future ^^.. i can help a lot, juz ask ^^..


yes- but -su makes a sentence formal too!


su? u sure? i have japanese program here when using sentence, and i got teacher to teach me, he's from japan also he juz came here 3 yrs ago to study english, and maybe its not "su" alone, maybe its desu/arimasu/imasu etc. u sure bout it? im gonna ask him next session..


okay fine then don't believ me! my onee-chan said it to me when i was around 4 years old, maybe she tricked me but i think, -su can be use in many things............... -su or -desu is to make a sentence POLITE!

Would this be an acceptable usage of desu- Arigato Gozimas Oto-san desu? or would it be placed after the words of thanks - Arigato Gozimas desu oto-san? I'm trying to retain some of the Japanese language but am finding the order somewhat difficile'. The Japanese language spoken is in order, but when you read the subs the words are out of order. In English if I was to say "hey, what's going on?" it would be written in the same order as it is spoken. This makes things even more complicated for me, Rawr!/Nyah!/Foo!/grrr!

Darepa S.


uhm... if ur using arigatou gozaimasu its already polite and u dont need to put desu... the construction of sentence in jpn is like this

1st- subject
2nd- the phrase and modifier
3rd- compliment
4th- verb

thats the correct construction ^^

what else u wanna ask?

In any case, you would have to be well versed in both English and Japanese in order to explain Japanese predicates to English speakers.
