2. Grammar Structure

Japanese is very flexible. No, I take that back. Japanese is extremely flexible.


In English, there is a particular order we need to speak in to make coherent sentences.

• I went to school.

There is a subject first, a verb second, and an object last. This is pretty much the only structure English follows to make a 21st century grammatically correct sentence.


However, in Japanese, what is the order for a correct sentence? You were probably taught that the grammar structure of a Japanese sentence is Subject-Object-Verb, right? Well, I can't say that you're wrong, but I can neither say that you're right.


The real structure of a Japanese sentence is...Verb.


Yes, that's the grammar structure of a complete Japanese sentence. The verb is the only thing that a Japanese sentence needs to be correct. Keep note, however, that the verb needs to fall at the end. It doesn't matter what order the subject or object come in, just as long as the verb is the last part of the sentence, you're all good (except when you misuse particles, of course).


The reason this is the way it is is because Japanese is a systematic language. The whole reason the language has particles like は, が, に, を, and の is to label necessary things throughout the sentence. Each particle has a purpose, or purposes, to modify a part in the sentence. Just as in English we have "At," "On," "Is," "Are," "The," and "A." These have special functions to label particular words and give them a job to do as we communicate. Although, aforementioned above, Japanese is more flexible than English, so we do not have to worry too much about when or where we say certain things.


Bear in mind that there is still a flow of things. The Subject-Object-Verb may not be the actual Japanese grammar structure, but it is the natural flow many Japanese natives use to communicate effectively with less confusion and difficulty.


Now that I've established an introduction, let's start off with the major particles!

See you in the next chapter!
