|Amatuka||see also すべき a contraction of する + べき|| |
|Amatuka||does not always come before the cupola (da, desu etc)|| |
|Amatuka||My preference would be to have the entry as べき, but it's your database. ;-)|| |
|Amatuka||Formed from Verb + beki|
Past tense, negative etc are possible.
V = verb
|prahlada||I was just going through the grammer "bekida". I find this grammer is figuring in both level 3 and level 2. I find that the expalnations are contradictory to each other. I feel the entry in level 3 should be deleted .|| |
|tigert||this is the same べき that is in level 3 the only diffrence is the だ sentence final, which has nothing to do with the should or ought to part of the grammar. it is just the casual sentance ending. so I think this entry should be merged with the level 3 and then deleted.|
|Cyrus||I think 真実 in ex #141 should be 信実 according to the translation.|| |
