"I will study tomorrow."


June 11, 2017



I was wondering if there's a reason to omit the particle 'は' after 'あした'.

June 11, 2017


Time and the subject its linked to are one topic as a whole, hence why there is no は between them. It thus follows that you only use topic particle は after the combination of the two.

June 14, 2017


after the combination? you mean:

あしたべんきょうします + は + X

I am pretty sure that is not right and it should be:

X + は + あしたべんきょうします

where X = watashi/anata/maria...

From what I've learned, you omit は after relative time expressions such as きょう、あした、おととい、etc.

June 13, 2017


I think the subject is ommited

Why is あした not followed by は, whereas in the other example, きのう is followed by は (as in きのうはべんきょうでした)?

June 16, 2017


は is a topic marker. Since the sentence is "I will study tomorrow" Tomorrow is not the topic of the sentence. I guess if it was "as for tomorrow, I will study" it would have used は. At least I think so. Someone correct me if I am wrong please

"I" would be the topic, but it was implied. I think.

If it's used with は it can express a(n implied) contrast.

For example: きのうは勉強しました。I did study yesterday. (But I won't study today.)

Although it could also just be, as a topic that we talk about all the things that we, the speaker and the other person, did yesterday.

Why し?

July 15, 2017


Because study is a noun, more like "course of study" and you "do"(します) it.

Hi ommar It's because it is a group 1 verb and its infinite is benkyoimasu So in order to conjugate it in the polite form you must change the su for shi

Other times they include wa after a time expression. Im not grasping the difference.

I think since は is a topic particle and you're talking about yourself, you don't have to write わたしはあしたべんきょうします, because it's given you're talking about yourself.

June 13, 2017


I keep telling myself that...

Isn't in Benkyou Shimashita more accuratly written as Benkyou o shimashita?

June 22, 2017


Either work, but the first is more common

July 10, 2017


Should we use the o particle before shimasu?

With べんきよう it's not necessary. Japanese has a few verbs that are actually nouns, so they need する/します attached afterwards to convert them into verbs.

June 28, 2017


You can. In this particular case, it's optional.

Caveat, if there's another thing taking the を particle, then it must be dropped from 勉強をします

I.e. you cannot say 日本語勉強します

Instead it needs to be 日本語を勉強します

July 22, 2017


Just as an addition. As someone pointed out in another discussion, instead of using two を which would be ungrammatical, you can connect the two nouns with a の particle.

日本語の勉強をします。(Literally: I do the study of Japanese).

Of course, using 日本語を勉強します。 is easier to use (at least from a learners point of view).

Mom says if you don't study 1st, you can't go to the party

August 1, 2017


I haven't read any books or any resource on particles yet so it's only fair that they still confuse the heck out of me.

Why is this sentence not: 明日はべんきょうをします。

If you choose to reply, please try to dumb it down as much as possible and avoid as much linguist speak as you are able.

June 12, 2017


I have the similar answer to the correct one but I'm wrong.

September 20, 2017


No 'に' particle for time ? Day don't works like hours ?

January 24, 2018


Why the し? I guess I should know by now, but I don't know how to learn, as the Duolingo course doesn't (yet) explain verbs.

June 25, 2018


べんきょう on its own is actually technically a noun. It is then turned into a verb by appending the verb "to do", する, the polite present tense/non-past tense conjugation of which is します

June 25, 2018


Thank you!

June 25, 2018


Why is あしたべんきょうします not accepted??? o_0

October 15, 2018


I want just to know why there is not をbefore the verb 勉強 ?

March 21, 2019


That's what I say every day.

April 4, 2019


this seems to be conversational japanese since ha and wo particles are not in the sentence
