"When will she come?"
The dictionary form of the verb is 来る which is read asくる, however the masu form of this verb is 来ますand read asきます
Can some breakdown how the sentence structure logic please? I don't understand :(
かのじょ - she は - topic marker いつ - when 来ます - present/future tense of the verb 'to come' か - question mark
The easiest thing to remember is that most of the time the action verb is always last in most sentences.
I'm a bit confused about something. To my English-speaking brain, I try to put the "when" with the [masuka] at the end of the sentence, as if it is all one bit that means "when?" question. So I'm confused as to why the "come" is being put after the "when" but before the question bit.? Can somebody please help me to understand it? Thank you.
Oh, I think I see from the above response (did you respond to that above person right as I was typing this question? That's amazing). It looks like [masuka] isn't the question bit. [masu] is attached to the "come" word. So "when" first, then "come" as [himasu] (if I heard it correctly), and then [ka] for the question bit at the end. Yes?
I think that my reply just disappeared. :( It look like the above poster just answered my question, though. Thank you!
for some reason when i put the ”いつ” bit, it marks it as wrong. So when I don't put that in, it also marks it as wrong. i cant complete the lesson because of this.
Edit: So i pressed skip on it and it gave me "Will she come?" it must've glitched and mixed the two together so it wouldn't take either answer. In the end it finally worked but it took a little effort.
So, why is it you use は when saying(for example, one in this lesson) 彼女は来ます。but say 彼女はいつ来ますか？ I thought 来ます was a transitive verb?
I thought pronouns weren't necessary? So why wouldn't いつ来ますか be correct? Couldn't you get the pronoun from context around the question? Or, since there's no context, is it required?
Yeah, but we arent given that context. If you were to take いつきますか by itself without context I believe it will more naturally translate to 'When are you coming?' rather than 'When is she coming?'.
いつ（何時）means when and じかん（時間） means time, if you use なんじかん（何時間）it will mean " how many hours" , i hope i am right :))
