Antara Basak
If you are an Indian you know that "desu" is similar to "hain" or "hu" (and similar things) in HindibrExample: Watashi wa L desubrHindi translation: Main L hubrbrJapanese is similar to Bengali toobrExample: Watashi wa sakana wo tabemasubrBengali translation: Ami machh khai { sakana- fish, tabemasu- eat}brHindi translation: Main machhli khata hu { Notice, there is no "desu" at the end}brbrWell, as an Indian, I would say Japanese has similar sentence structure as Hindi or Bengali (though Bengali sentences don't end with "hain" but as you can see sometimes Japanese sentences too don't end with "desu")brbrSo, if you are an Indian and learning Japanese, please translate sentences in Hindi or Bengali in your mind You would be able to translate word for word without changing the sentence structure

If anyone sees this I hope it helps:brDesu makes sense on it's own with context bc Japanese is a topic prominent language This basically means you can take away the subject and don't have to restate it when talking about it, but usually only when everyone knows what the subject is Sometimes restating the subject can be seen as putting an emphasis on itbrIn his example he replies to: "Is Joey an idiot?" With "is" bc the subject is known to both ppl In English it would translate to "Joey is" See, the Japanese don't add the subject :)brEnglish is subject prominent, so you can't have a sentence without the subject/nounbrbrHope this helps, I just learnt this myself b4 I was recommended this vid
Comment from : Best B


Elias Burg
4:00 Well, Isn't it kinda similar in english, I meam just saying "It is" without any context whatsoever is also quite pointless More often than not the word "is" doesn't really provide any actual meaning, but it's needed to form grammatically correct sentences unlike it's japanese counterpart

Goos
Marathi ( An Indian language spoken in Maharashtra) is kinda similar When you say "Joey ek murkh ahe", it means "Joey is an Idiot" But when you say"Joey ek murkh ahe ka?", It means "Is Joey an Idiot?" But this is informal If you want to tell this about some person you respect or is senior to you, you say "ahet" instead of "ahe" But in this context it doesn't make sense cuz you just called the respected person an Idiot

Rohan Zener
It is short of "de aru"/"de arimasu", which means "to be in" So "desu" means "it is [within]"brAs well, Japanese defaults its word order to SOV, like Latin and Korean, and unlike where it borrows quite a few words from, Chinese, which defaults to SVO So "desu", as a verb, comes at the end of a sentencebrThis means for English speakers, that Chinese is easier to learn to speak
