I learned an interesting variation on a word today.

You know, one of the things I thought I had down pretty well in Japanese was the word “iru”. But, Rosetta Stone seems to have shown me a usage I didn’t know about.

While doing my lesson I stumbled across the word “irimasu”. Since I had never heard the word before, I decided to load up google to find the plain form. Everything I could find on it seems to indicate that its plain form is iru.

Normally this wouldn’t be very interesting information, but the “polite” form of iru is supposed to be imasu. So, it seems there are some variations of the polite forms of words that I haven’t encountered in any of my lessons. I guess I’m going to have to spend some extra time looking into words I thought I already learned. =P

I haven’t gotten my review finished yet (I am pretty bad about these things), but I should get around to it in the next few days. For now, you’ll just have to settle for my daily posts. =P

Alright, I’m going to keep this fairly short again (I keep doing these way too late at night). おやすみなさい (Oyasumi nasai!) =D
