33. That それ・その

This and that. Now, we are on the THAT part. Depending where the object is in relation to the speaker, you use different words for “that.”


それ
sore – when “that” is not connected to a noun.

それ は 何 です か?
sore wa nan desu ka?
What is that?

 

それ は ねこ です。
sore wa neko desu.
That is a cat.

 


  • HINT: Begin to think of the words starting with K’s as “this” and the S’s as “that” words  

その
sono – When you put “that” before a noun, it changes to sono.

その ねこ は ポチ です か?
sono neko wa pochi desu ka?
Is that cat, Pochi?.

いいえ。 その たこ は ポチ です。
iie sono tako wa pochi desu.
No. That octopus is Pochi.



  • HINT: This is used in the same way as kono.
