What are the sentence structure rules for the Japanese language?

I know you have the sentence -> (noun phrase) (verb phrase)

  • Linguistic - Japanese -

    In a Japanese sentence or clause, the verb is placed at the end, and its grammatical order is: subject + object + verb, so that instead of saying
    I bought a new hat.
    The Japanese will say:
    I a new hat bought.

    In Interrogation, "ka" at the end of a sentence or clau se, corresponds to our question mark.
    Koré wa nan désu ka. = What is this?
    (literally, or word for word = This what is?

    O-wakarí ni narimashita ka.
    (Do you understand me?)

    Sra (aka Mme / senséi)
