Elementary Class Day 19

Sensei got fever 風邪(かぜ)を引(ひ)く. Take care お大事(だいじ)に, Sensei.

This lesson run very fast. For ninja, time is life. Our action should be quick. We learnt how to identity existence and number of targets, such as resources and enemies.

名詞A に 形容詞B 名詞C が います。
There is adjective B noun C (animal or people) in noun A.

名詞A に 形容詞B 名詞C が あります。
There is adjective B noun C (plant or non living item) in noun A.

For example,

部屋に可愛いくノ一がいます。
There is a lovely female ninja in the room.

部屋に可愛いくノ一があります。
There is a lovely but dead female ninja in the room.

Numbering is important for ninja. If a Kunoichi could not identify some places with a lot 大勢(おおぜい)of enemies or a lot 沢山(たくさん)of traps, she would have been captured, mass raped and killed eventually.
