[ Edit This Grammar Entry ]
| Notes: |
|Group 1: Change the last sound of the ます-form into the え sound. E.g. やすみ「ます」-> やすめ|
Group 2: Append ろ to the ます-form. E.g. ねろ / 寝ろ
Group 3: します->しろ きます->こい
Quite 'rough' speech, normally only used by men or those in senior positions.
|This construct expresses a rough negative command ("Don't you dare do X!"). It takes the [dictionary form] of the verb and appends 〜な to it.|| |

| Comments: |
|Amatuka||Formed from dictionary form verb + na|
Vru = 'Dictionary' form verb (e.g. 歩く、する、いる)
|hassan||ふざけるな！ (they often say it in anime etc. means|
something like... how to say it... 'stop that!',
'don't make me a fool')
|Miki||We don't say ふせげるな! but we say ふせぐな！ 防ぐ+な|
ふざける is 'Dictionary' form verb and not potential form. ふざけるな can be also said as ふざけるんじゃない
|誠||ふざけるな or ふざけないで meaning : " don't/ stop messing around and behave yourself"|
ふざける = basic meaning is " to play around", "to mess about" but can also mean " to talk nonsense".
