69. A Closer look at を

Pronounced o but written in Japanese as wo. Simply put, を is the “direct object marker or particle” which indicates the previous word is the direct object. There are cases when the English would not consider it a direct object, though. Learn some examples and give it a try. This particle is one of the easier ones…

私はりんご食べました。
watashi wa ringo o tabemashita.
I ate an apple. (apple is the を)

 

音楽聞きたいです。
ongaku
o kikitai desu.
I want to listen to music. (music is the を)

 

テレビ買うつもりです。
terebi
o kau tsumori desu .
I intend to buy a TV.
(tsumori means “intend to”; TV is the を)
