Ne..*raises hand* I've been wanting to ask this for quite some time..but..Hm..

What's the proper usage/meaning for "domo"?..I've heard it being used as "Thank you" and some others which I vaguely remembered....Sorry for the trouble..

its can be used alot of ways actually. like it could be used to say hi to someone of a higher status. its ussually like the word "very"
like domo sumimasen "im very sorry" or domo arigato gozaimasu "thank you very much"
see what i mean.. or is that explanation to confusing?

actually its wakarimashita. its the past tense form of the verb. there are only 2 tenses in japanese. present/future and past.

positive present/future~ ..masu, desu
positive past ~ ...mashita, deshita
negative present/future~ ...masen, ja arimasen/ ja nai desu
negative past~ ...masen deshita, ja arimasen deshita/ ja nakatta desu

the words in blue is what you would find following an ajective or noun. ex kore wa enpitsu desu. (this is a pencil) or kore wa enpitsu ja arimasen deshita. (this wasnt a pencil)
the words in red are the endings of a verb. ex. wakarimashita. (i understood) or tabemasen (i will not eat)
you would never find a desu following a verb, unless the verb is in its "tai" form. like tabetai desu. but we'll get to that later on

*nodding while you explain it all*

wakarimashita, sensei ! Doumo arigatou gozaimasu ! *bow and take my sit*

i've heard that 'chigau' (if that is spell correctly) mean you're wrong and how to say that in polite manner?

Naruhodo! Arigatou Rey-sensei..

*raises hand*


"Ano..what's the basic sentence arrangement for Japanese language..like in English, a simple sentence is when..
there's the subject (actor), verb (action) and predicate (acted upon). Eg: The cat sat on the mat. What about Japanese? How do you construct a simple sentence? Does the verb comes first or the predicate or?.."
