Easy 日本語 3『That’s So Smart-ish』
Turn your nouns into adjectives and see what happens when a smart-ish boy steals watermelons during the night in this terrifying lesson!
Turn your nouns into adjectives using the Japanese equivalent of ‘-ish’,「〜っぽい」, just attach「〜っぽい」after a noun to make it adjective-ish! See ↑ above ↑ for its usage. What’s more, it can also be used with certain verbs. You conjugate it using the stem (drop 〜ます) and attaching「〜っぽい」.
example: ❶忘れます → ❷忘れ (drop〜ます) → ❸忘れっぽい (add〜っぽい) = forgetful
Please note that「〜っぽい」itself can also be conjugated.
example: 忘れっぽくなる = becoming forgetful
That’s all there is to it! Try it yourself!
