100 GRAMMAR POINTS

56. Won’t you…? ~ませんか?

Why don’t we study Japanese grammar?

Okay. Since we have the above construction in English (using a negative to suggest doing something), this grammar point isn’t too difficult to grasp.

Construction:
1) ~masu verb – masu + masen ka

どこか行きませんか
dokoka ikimasen ka.
Why don’t we go already?[Notice, I have the English as “we.” It could be “you” if you are angry at the person and wish him to leave…]

映画を見ませんか
eiga o mimasen ka .
Why don’t we see a movie?

何か飲みませんか
nanika nomimasen ka.
Wouldn’t you like to drink something?[In this case you are asking someone individually if they would like something to drink. ]
