    de arimasu is a line that is used in writing to show "stop." It's like a period. desu is the contracted version of it. I might be wrong though. Just what I have read

    I think it's more like those scenes in TV, where the character is reading a note or letter and they read it like this:
    "Dear Friends, I have gone to do some thinking STOP Please do not try and look for me STOP Thank you for understanding STOP blah blah blah STOP"

    i always thought de arimasu was a strange thing too, meaning i retract or distantiate myself from something, i think.

    “~te arimasu” means “something has been done” but past tense will not be used for this case.

    Example
    The window is closed - Mado ga (shimeru)shimete arimasu
    The door is opened - Doa ga (akeru)akete arimasu
    The pen is placed on the table - Pen ga teburu no ue ni (oku)oite arimasu
    My name is written in the book - Hon ni namae ga (kaku)kaite arimasu

    de arimasu The "de aru" construction is an archaic and overly formal way of speach that has long since fallen out of use. Think of it as an overly formal "desu".

    Japan does indeed have multiple ways of saying certain numbers, for certain situations. Mainly just the numbers 1-10 though.

    Desu is just something you put after a noun to designate it as the sentence subject.


    What is a Noun?
    A noun is a word used to name a person, animal, place, thing, and abstract idea. Nouns are usually the first words which small children learn. The highlighted words in the following sentences are all nouns:

    Late last year our neighbours bought a goat.
    Portia White was an opera singer.
    The bus inspector looked at all the passengers' passes.
    According to Plutarch, the library at Alexandria was destroyed in 48 B.C.
    Philosophy is of little comfort to the starving.

    A noun can function in a sentence as a subject, a direct object, an indirect object, a subject complement, an object complement, an appositive, an adjective or an adverb.

    For everything an answer i guess :dunno:

    I thought "desu" was the Japanese "be" verb. :confused: English "be" verbs include:

    am, is, are, was, were, being, been

    They express a state of existence or passive action, I guess.

    "Jaron desu" = "I am Jaron"
    "Oishii desu" = "It is delicious"
    "Nani desu yo" = "wtf is it"

    :hsughno:

    I'm taking Japanese and I can basically say that desu doesn't have any English equivilant. The closest thing I can think of would be desu=is.

    NO NO NO NO. Who told you that? After a noun in japanese you would use a particle (Wa or Ga for example) to designate that it's the subject. Desu generally comes at the end of a sentance after an adjective. Example:

    John san wa totemo urusai desu.

    John san is very (totemo) loud (Urusai).
