|Amatuka||N.B. The Japanese example was 'home made' not 'Google found' so I'm not sure how natural it is.|| |
|Miki||To make it more natural, 「品質_は_いい。でも、…。」Nobody cares it（が） when the sentence is used in conversation.|
|Amatuka||Ah, thanks. (は and が are tricky beasties).|| |
|bamboo4||We don't have でも in the sense of 日本人でも漢字は難しい？|
|hari||Nor have we お茶でもいかがですか。|| |
|dc||but i often hear お茶でもいい？|
do you want some tea? (just (humble) tea is ok?)
|Miki||Both are ok as Japanese.|
お茶でもいかがですか。is a polite way to ask tea or something. Also I heard this is used by a guy to start a converstaion with a girl.
お茶でもいい？ is a casual way to suggest. dc's understanding is ok.
|誠||お茶でもいかがですか。is a polite form of asking "would you have some green tea?". Here でも is used to indicate that " the are other things,equally well to be offered to listener, but the offeror just make a single choice (which is お茶) out of the other offerings, the listerner can make other choices if he/she didn't want green tea", |
If it is お茶でいいですか , it indicates that " there is only green-tea to be offered, and if the listerner doesn't want then the offeror doesn't have any other to offer"
|Paul||Is this really JLPT 1? I would have thought it 4 or 3 at most.|| |
|ushimitsudoki||How about だけど？ It might be worth a "see also" entry.|| |
|takamichi||how about in context of "sore demo daijoubu"|| |
|fuyugare||Why on this website, every time there should be an apostrophe, is there this intead : ' ?|
Can anyone explain me how to solve this problem ?
|jatznic||When typing English using a Japanese IME the ' is replaced by : because that's what is naturally on that key on a Japanese keyboard. I am constantly placing a colon where an apostrophe should be while typing in IME mode. I always have to go back and hit Shift+7 because that's where it is on the 106/109 key keyboards.|| |
