Hey y’all, I’ve got a question regarding Japanese adjectives that I haven’t had any luck finding on Google or the forums.
I understand how they function and conjugate, but my question is why are they split into 形容動詞 and 形容詞? Obviously I mean besides by the way they end. Like are they different types of adjectives? Do they originate from different places? I’m curious as to why in English we just have “adjectives”, but Japanese, for some reason, has two kinds.
Thanks in advance for any and all help and information!
