|anonymous||Is this similar to ?|| |
|Miki||Yes, I think so as for ex# and #. |
While ex# and # imply a slight suspicious mind or assumption. So these are similar to hontouni 本当に.
|dc||使い果たして seems to be a frequent set phrase meaning to "use up; exhaust". Is this related to hatashite as a grammar construct? ie the implication is "used up as we expected" ?|| |
|semoo||plz told us!!!!!!!!!!!!|| |
|Miki||ex# # these 果たす are different meaning from the entry.|| |
|bamboo4||Those 使い果たす examples do not belong here.They should be set up in a separate head.|
|christ||In response to dc's question... |
There are 2 uses with slightly different essence:
1. as we expected
2. to accomplish, finish
You can see that accomplish and as we expected have similarities.
|kikkoro||For this item of grammar, 果たして is to be used as the adverb of the sentense. 果たす,使い果たす are verb so they are out of scope.|| |
