Hi everyone, hope you’re all well.
I’ve got my Japanese first year exam in a week and I’m wondering about when to use the causative form with the giving and receiving verbs.
So I understand the two types of causative basic sentence patterns ok.
Sは Oを Verb Causative - so subject makes object do…
Sは S2に Oを Verb Causative - Subject makes S2 do verb to O
Sは Oに Verb Causative - Subject lets O do verb.
(Sは S2に Oに VC - Subject lets S2 do verb to O) This is my first question
Hopefully what i’ve written is correct, but the bit in brackets is what I think is wrong in my notes.
My first question is with type 2 if you wanted to say S lets S2 do verb to an Object, does the object take を or に because in my notes it says に but in the past I used that and got it wrong, so I’m not too sure what particle the object takes with type 2.
My second question is when using te form with the giving and receiving verbs, do you only use it when 私 is the subject or the object. So if the speaker is not involved in the sentence then the giving/receiving verbs are omitted.
Sorry if this is a bit long winded, hopefully this makes sense.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
