|Amatuka||Note different verb form used before まい.|| |
|Amatuka||Hmm, not completely sure of the translation on this one ...|| |
|Miki||そうです。日本語があまい！How about this?|
|Miki||Did you pick up the translation from Google? Searched by よろしく相談。The sentence is from a letter written in 1916. The Japanese is old.|
…、この話を先生に相談していただけませんか？or 相談していただけないものか？ would be modern expression.
|bamboo4||まいか or ないか is normally used by a senior person to address his junior. It is not a honorrific.頂けませんか would be the polite form.頂けないものか would be the mordern version of まいか.|
|Yuri||I was taught that this まいか form is also used to express some confusion : whether...or not -- don't know yet. |
..still considering whether going or not.
|paulblay||Same as maika, I think there should not be a separate entry for mai_ka_-2, it should be here under the heading of mai-2.|| |
