Basic Introduction to the Particles は and が
Because the Japanese language has separate markers for the topic and the subject of a sentence, the particles は and が, it allows for a unique grammatical construction of sentences.
The general outline for the は-が sentence construction is TOPIC は, SUBJECTが DESCRIPTION. For simplicity’s sake, the direct translation of this format could be interpreted as , “Regarding the topic TOPIC, SUBJECT is DESCRIPTION.”
California ha yachin ga sugoku takai desu.
(In California the rent is very expensive.)
George Washington ha seikaku ga subarashii desu.
(Regarding George Washington, his personality is wonderful.)
Multiple descriptors can also be used with this format.
