The Particle 「 を 」

I’m the TA for a Japanese 001 course, and I’ve been making little announcements for the students via the online course management system. Here’s one that teaches the function of 「を」.

Today let's talk about the particle:

Well, 「 を 」 doesn't mean anything.

(゚Д゚;) whaaa?

Don't fret! It doesn't have a meaning, but it has a FUNCTION!

(゜o゜) tell me more...

「 を 」 Just lets us know that the verb has a direct object.
for example:


In this sentence, 「 を 」 tells us that the direct object of the verb 「 します 」 is the noun 「 しゅくだい 」.

Which would otherwise mean, Do homework.


So... in conclusion, don't forget to do your 「 しゅくだい 」 !
