Structure 6 :

V/ A/ N (Short form) +ものだから/もんだから。


Because I think … to advocate, can be replaced by から

ものだから usually used in writing.

もんだから Used in close relationships.

Do not use imperative verbs behind this structure.

For example:

Uwagi o nuidemo ii desuka. Atsui monodesukara.
Can I take my jacket off? Because I’m feeling very hot.

Osoku natte gomen. Douro ga konde ita mondakara.
Sorry I’m late, the traffic was bad.

Structure 7 :

V/ A/ N (short form) +もの/もん


It’s because ( legitimate reasons).
Normally put at the end of the sentence, in close relationships, to emphasize the legitimacy of the reasons).
Can be used along with だって to show reasons but more flexible.
Used for both genders, but more likely to be used by women and children.

For example:

Paatii ni wa ikanakatta yo. Shiranakatta mono.
I didn’t go to the party because I didn’t know of it.

Shouganai yo. Kodomo damon.
There is no other way. It’s because he is a kid.

Structure 8 :

V/ A/ N (short form) +ものの


Even though (although) … however
The latter sentence often has a contradictory meaning.

For example:

Kuruma no menkyo wa motte iru monono, hotondo unten shita koto ga nai.
Even though I had a driver’s license, I never drive.

Moushikomi wa shita monono, shiken o ukeru ka dou ka miteida.
Even though I have signed up, I still don’t know if I will participate in the exam.

Structure 9 :

Nは もとより ~も


Even … let alone
Used to talk about obvious things, facts first to mention other things at the lower level later.

For example:

Uchi ni wa, kuruma wa motoyori jitensha mo naindesu.
My family doesn’t even have a bicycle, let alone a car.

Retasu wa sarada de taberu no wa motoyori, itamete mo oishii.
Even fried lettuce is delicious, let alone salad.

Structure 10 :



Might not be N1 but it’s definitely N2
To cast N1 aside to emphasize the importance of N2.

For example:

Haha no ryouri wa mita me tomokaku aji wa oishii.
My mom’s food might not look good but it takes good.

Ano joyuu wa, kao wa tomokaku to shite engi ga subarashii.
