permalink One of the exercises we used in elementary to build vocabulary was to make sentences, so lets do it with Japanese as well.

Rules are simple, make a sentence with the word the person above you posted and post a new word for the next person, please include a romaji version for our newbs.

Example:
Quote by player1
word - 先生 せんせい sensei

Quote by player2
僕たちの先生はやさしいです。
ぼくたちのせんせいはやさしいです。
bokutachi no sensei wa yasashii desu.
our teacher is kind

兎 うさぎ usagi


Quote by player1
兎には長いな耳がある
うさぎにはながいなみみがある
usagi ni wa nagai mimi ga aru
rabbits have long ears

鰻 うなぎ unagi


Try your best but you don't have to use all kanji, kana, romaji. If you're new, don't be afraid to use a dictionary or a conjugation tool. Have fun!

permalink Just one? J/K I won't lead you astray. Actrually ga is corrent. Ga is the subject marker. A typical action sentence has a subject which does something to something else (the object). Ore ga kuruma wo noru (I will drive the car). Ga is the subject marker (marking I) and wo is the object marker (marking car). Now wa is a little crazier. It's a topic marker which sometimes marks the subject - as you used, and sometimes it marks the object as well - "Omae wa ore ga mamoru" actually means "I will protect you" rather than "you will protect me." That that's an example of when wa is an object marker. Here's a couple of examples of how ga is used:
