Learning Japanese: Sentence Format (III)

Compare the format:

1. わたし は うち が 欲しい です。[Watashi wa uchi ga hoshii desu] (I want a house)

2. わたし は 駅から 近い うち が 欲しい です。[Watashi wa eki kara chikai uchi ga hoshii desu] (I want a house which is close to station)

–> 駅から 近い would mean the clause “which is close to station” here.

が 欲しい です can also be replace by: が 好き ですが verb+たい です

Example:

1. 外で する スポシ が 好き です。[Sotode suru supotsu ga suki desu] (I like to do the outdoor sport)

2.パンコン を おく 机 が 欲しい です。[Pankon o oku tsukue ga hoshii desu] (I would like to have the table for computer)

3.わたし は 広い 庭 が ある うち が 欲しい です。[watashi wa hiroi niwa ga aru uchi ga hoshii desu] (I want the house which has a big/spacious garden)
