#19 What does 皿 mean?



Hello, everyone.
How are you?


It's kÜshi.


Do you have fun to study kanji and
Japanese?


I realized that I should make some
efforts to make studying Japanese
exciting for you.


And I've been trying to make crazy
example sentences.


Having fun is everything.


I hope this idea is successful!!


So today's kanji is 皿



Reads: sara
Means: a dish

Ex.

🔴1. Good morning, Yuuya. Do you like
dishes?
...おはよう、ゆうや。皿は好き?
/Ohayou, yuuya. Sara wa su-ki/


👉おはよう means good morning!
If you make it polite, you say
おはようございます(ohayou-gozaimasu)


👉ゆうや is a boy's name


👉好き (su-ki) means to like.
You'll ask me why it's not 皿を好き,
like 皿を洗う(sara o ara-u), which means
"to wash dishes"

Actually, 好き is a special word.


Generally, を is put before an objective
noun.

For example,

○I wash the dishes
...皿を洗う
/sara O ara-u/

→洗う(あらう, ara-u) means to wash


○I eat meat
...肉をたべる
/niku O taberu/

→肉(にく, niku) is meat.


○I watch the bird
...とりを見る
/tori O mi-ru/

→とりmeams a bird

→見る means to see


If you change the berbs to 好き,
they'll be these:


○I like the dishes
...皿が好き
/sara GA suki/


○I like meat
...肉が好き
/niku GA suki/


○I like birds
...とりが好き
/tori GA suki/


As you know, 好き is a special verb.



🔴2. He gives names to his all dishes.
See? This is AlexanderⅡ

...彼は彼が持っている全ての皿に名前を
つけている。
ほら、これがアレキサンダー2世だ。

/Kare wa kare ga mo-tteiru sube-te no
sara ni namae o tsukete iru.
Hora, kore ga Arekisandaa ni-sei da/


👉彼(かれ, kare) meams he


👉持っている(mo-tteiru) is a progressive
form of 持つ(mo-tsu), which means to have.


👉全て(sube-te) means "all"
If you put a noun after it, 全て
changes to 全ての(sube-te no)


👉名前(namae) means a name.
See, namae and name...
Look similar!!
This is a miracle!


👉つけている (tsukete iru) is a
progressive form of つける(tsukeru),
which means to attach.

If you say 名前をつける, it meams
to name.


👉ほら(hora) means like "see?"
and "look!"


👉これ means "this"
And これが means "this is"


👉アレキサンダー(arekisandaa)
This is katakana.


👉2世(ni-sei)
This is used only like アレキサンダー2世



So, that's all today.


Thank you for coming here!


I hope this helps you a lot!


See you next time~~
