From lesson 1.3, I'd like to ask for some help in understanding something . I've only just started practicing writing the characters, so I apologize for having to ask in romanji.
Konya o sushi o tabe ni iki mashō ka? / Shall we go and eat sushi tonight?
Oishii o mise o shitte imasu / I know a delicious restaurant
From what I understand, placing "o" before a noun makes the noun sound more refined. If that's correct, it makes sense to me when it's placed before "sushi" and "mise," but I'm confused as to why it's also used before "tabe" and "shitte imasu" - can someone please help me understand? Is it to more formalize the act of "eating" and "knowing"?
Also, I found a post several years ago where someone asked a similar question, and Sayaka's response was:
.......the sentence should be "Konya o sushi tabe ni ikimashou ka". Please go back to the members area to view the corrected version........
It's not corrected in the members area, so I'm not sure which is correct.
Thanks so much!
