Particle も (mo)


This particle is used to express “too” or “as well”. It always is related to the precedent noun. In case that the noun is followed by the particles が (ga) or は (ha) these are replaced by も (mo). In case that the precedent noun is followed by the particles に (ni) or で (de) the particle も (mo) is attached to the precedent particle.

Example 1:

私も日本人です。

わたしもにほんじんです。

watashi mo nihonjin desu.

I am Japanese too.

Example 2:

日本でもお天気がいいです。

にほんでもおてんきがいいです。

nihon demo otenki ga ii desu.

The weather in Japan is good too.

Example 3:

私は東京にも行きます。

わたしはとうきょうにもいきます。

watashi wa toukyou nimo ikimasu.

I will also go to Tokyo.
