An Interjection expresses some sudden wish or emotion of the mind; as, Ā do itashimasho, Ah! what shall I do?
The principal interjections are—Ō, Ā, Ha-hā, Ho-i, Nasakenai, Oya-oya, Are, Naruhodo, &c.
There are two kinds of sentences—simple and compound.
- A simple sentence; as, Kono hito wa kasikō gozarimasu, He is clever.
- A compound sentence; as, Kono hito wa kasikō gozarimasu keredomo hatarakimasen, He is clever, but he does not work.
I. A verb must be put after its object; as, Watakusi we hana wo konomimasu, I like flowers.
- In this sentence the object hana is placed before the predicate konomimasu.
II. Prepositions are placed after nouns which they govern, and which are said to be in the objective case; as, Watakusi wa Yedo ye mairimasu, I go to Yedo.
