です vs だ
I just encountered the sentence 雨ですからかさをかしてください again and as I was typing I thought it felt a bit off.. I thought です could only be used at the end of a sentence? My first instinct was that it should be 雨だから but now I've started to doubt myself..
So, my question is: can です only be used at the end of a sentence, or can it be used at the end of a clause as well? Am I making things up here?
Great, thanks! Not sure where I got the idea from it couldn't haha. Thanks for clearing that up.
Hi! It can be used at the end of a clause (and only some clauses) only when you're talking or writing in keigo. It's not something you want to write on an exam, or use with your friends.
