でしょう,んです と だろう?


#1

Hey, folks. I’m a bit confused about these three… They all seem to mean something similar, but I wanna know when to use each one. I keep getting them mixed up on my ぶんプロ reviews.


#2

でしょう is です/ます version of だろう

んです adds an explanatory tone, でしょう/だろう adds uncertainty.


#3

You are right but I have heard んだろう。is this gramatically correct?


#4

Sure. It just adds both tones to the sentence.

寒いんだろう = It’s because it’s cold, don’t you think?


#5

The particle ので basically comes from the same idea as this ん / の, if that helps cement it. Usually that gets taught as just “because” without mention of it being that の plus the て form of だ.
