I’m at level 5 and just realized that I now learnt 3 different endings for the same steam / verb : 見る, 見せる and 見える.
So I’m wondering :
- are there more than those 3 forms for the stem 見 ?
- how many different “verb endings” are there in Japanese ? I’ve already spotted verbs ending by つ, す, がる, etc.
- anyone could share for a list of those “verb endings”, or point me to a resource ?
- are there some general rules explaining how those different endings affect the sense of the stem / verb ?
I searched on Google but mainly found explanations about the various “forms” of a verb like masu / masen / mashita / nai / te / etc. But what I’m looking for is more about the different “infinitive” form, and how they give a different sense to the stem / verb.
Sorry for probably not using the right words, I have no idea how this is called in Japanese grammar (and I suck at grammar more generally !)… hopefully you get what I mean by “verb endings” from the example above
Tx in advance
