I have various sources I’m learning verbs from, but this topic is a bit confusing as there seems to be many different English terms for various verb forms.
The following video seems to show the system rather logically and is easy to access for members on this board:
(Her voice is rather odd, but the info seems legit)
I have two resources that show the conjugations of many verbs, but they don’t provide example sentences. I just want to make sure I’m using each form correctly.
As such the following are example sentences I’ve made using the examples she used in the video above and in the order she went through them, while trying to keep the basic structure as similar as possible between the examples.
I drink sake/I will drink sake (plain and formal).
I want to drink sake.
Sake is a drink.
I don’t drink sake (plain and formal).
Let me drink sake/Make me drink sake.
The sake is getting drunk by me.
The sake got drunk by me.
Last 2 based on this video:
I can drink sake.
Let’s drink sake (plain and formal).
And some basic た/て forms and a few additional forms:
Drink the sake (plain and formal).
Don’t drink the sake (plain and formal).
I drank the sake (plain and formal).
I didn’t drink the sake (plain and formal).
I am (currently) drinking sake (plain and formal).
I’m not (currently) drinking sake.
I was drinking sake (plain and formal)
I wasn’t drinking sake.
I think you can use 飲んで and 飲まないで without attaching 下さい, if you are talking to friends, but I’m not certain. I’m also not sure if 飲め and 飲むな are considered plain or actually rude, unless it was a situation where you were trying to stop someone from drinking something bad. So I’m a bit shaky on those rules.
So basically what I’m asking is, did I get those sentences right?
Or has Inigo Montoya had the last laugh?
