#23 What does 書く mean?



Hello everyone.
How are you?


Thank you so much for coming here.


It's kÜshi.


🔴I help you study kanji and Japanese
by making example sentences with
kanji.

And then I explain the grammars and
all the kanji which are used in the
sentences


🔴I realized that I should make useful
sentences so that you can learn kanii
with very natural Japanese which we
usually use, not formal ones.


🔴The method to study here.

I always make very natural sentences,
so they are sometimes difficult to
understand.

But don't worry. I explain everything in
detail.


So this is one of the best methods to
study here.

1. Copy the sentences on paper
carefully.

2. Read aloud the sentence while
looking it.

3. Read the explanations.


I hope this helps you a lot!



So today's kanji is 書

Yes, it looks complex, but see it
carefully and write it many times,
so that you'll remember it.


書く
Reads: ka-ku(書-く)
Means: to write


Ex.

1. Have you written a letter to Tom yet?
...もうトムへの手紙は書いたの?
/mou tomu e no tegami wa ka-ita no/

This sentence may makes you confused
if you have already studied some
grammars, but don't worry. I'll explain
everything.


👉もう(mou)

To begin with, we say it like "mō"

This means "already" and "yet"


For example,
"Have you seen it yet?"
...もうそれ見た?
/mou sore mi-ta?/


→もう means "yet"

→それ(sore) means "it"

→見た(みた, mi-ta) is a past form of
見る(みる, mi-ru)

If you want to know about the past form,

👉トム(tomu)

As you see, this means Tom.

It comes from English, so we write it with
katakana.


👉トムへの(tomu e no)

Yes, へ is usually read "he", but in the case
of writing letters, it reads "e".

Oh how confusing!

But don't worry, へ is not used as "e" so
much.

When you write "To Tom" on the letter, you
write "トムへ" (tomu e), just that.


の makes the words adjective.
So, トムへの手紙 means "to-Tom letter"

I wonder you say such a phrase, sorry XD



👉手紙(てがみ, tegami)

This means "a letter"



👉書いた(かいた, ka-ita)

This is a past form of 書く

Basically, when you make past forms,
you put た at the end of the verbs.


But the verbs, itself, change too.


The rule of change is very difficult.


So I think it best to remember all the
kinds of past forms.


There are not so much kinds, as you
expect.



Examples of past forms.

見る(みる, mi-ru)...to see
→見た(みた, mi-ta)...saw


作る(つくる, tsuku-ru)...to make
→作った(つくった, tsuku-tta)
...made


書く(かく, ka-ku)...to write
→書いた(かいた, ka-ita)... wrote


する(suru)...to do
→した(shita)...did

This is very special.
But see?
It has た at the end too.



読む(よむ, yo-mu)...to read
→読んだ(よんだ, yo-mda)...read

How to write 読↓

Get used to the past form so that you'll
be able to make it naturally.


👉の?(no)

If you put this interrogative sentences,
it sounds softer.



So that's all today.


Thank you for reading this!


I hope this helps you a lot!


And I'm glad if you send me a message!


See you next time!
