"I think school is on holiday today."
休み is the noun "vacation, holiday" 休む is the verb "to rest, to take time off"
Is there a way to differentiate between “I think there is a school holiday today” and “Today, I think that there is a school holiday”?
i believe its as simple as removing "は" from "today". please someone more literate correct me but im pretty sure the "wa" is what emphasises "Today".
今日 は 学校 が 休 み だ と 思 います。
きょう は がっこう が やすみ だ と おも います。
kyou wa gak'kou ga yasumi da to omo imasu.
today (topic) school (subject) holiday to_be (quote) to_think (nonpast)
"Today, school has a holiday," I think.
は is the topic marker and が denotes the subject. AはBが... is a very common sentences structure in Japanese.
