There’s so many examples online but I still just don’t seem to get this one (or sentence structure overall in Japanese). I have no idea why and it may be because I don’t actually understand the fundamentals of language overall (like verbs/nouns/adjectives) like I can read up what it means but my English is constructed without the thought of them.
Basically, I have trouble with order and wording, especially on の combos.
I am a Toyota employee.
I use: “watashi ha toyota no kaishain desu”
Makes a lot of sense to me in how I’m learning, I being the first topic than “ha” particle and then N1 clarifier の N2Main desu.
But the next question I have is:
My teacher’s name is Yamashita.
My initial guess is “わたしはせんせい の なまえの やました です”
In order of (topic being about mine) - (clarifying is a teacher) - (clarifying more we’re talking about name) - (lastly main point is the name itself).
But apparently the answer is “わたし の せんせい の なまえ は やました です。” so would I be correct in the order of words and I just don’t fully understand the particle (as I usually put topic marker at the start?).
Thanks for any advice!
