LESSON DIFFICULTY: LEVEL 2
This is a relatively basic but important grammar point, and I've decided to go for it first because it's actually used in the title of an Arashi song.言葉より大切なもの
Words / compared to / important / thingSomething more important than words.
The most basic sentence to use より with is:
- (1) は (2) より (Adjective) です
This sentence pattern describes the quality/state of (1) in comparison to (2).
In the case of ｢言葉より大切なもの」, if we put it into that structure, it would become.....（この）ものは言葉より大切です
(This) thing / subj / words / compared to / important / is(This) thing is more important than words( Read more...Collapse )READ MORE EXPLANATION OF より HERE.
