| Notes: |
|It is considered impolite to ask someone else if the "want" to do something. Instead, use the negative form of the verb in a question. || |
|Very important: "tai" can only be used for the I person, like "i want". |
If you want to say that someone else wants, you use "tagaru".
This is because Japanese never imply they know what someone else wishes, and "garu" means: "i think that", "i heard that", etc.
