### Particles

Particles are the connecting words, that usually indicate the relationship between a noun and a verb. There are loads. Here are the ones I’ve learned so far and some example sentances.

• は - Pronounced “wa”, this is the wa in わたしはマットです。My teacher refers to this as the “topic maker” as it indicates the main focus of the sentance.
• が - This is used the same as は but puts more emphasis on the noun before it rather than what’s after it.
• わたしはマットです。 - I am Matt.
• わたしがマットです。 - I am Matt (think spider-man pointing meme).
• の - This is a possessive particle. It indicates that the thing after “belongs to” the thing before. eq. これはわたしのくるまでそ。
