JLPT Taisaku 26#然も/さも

更新日:2023年10月14日

然も/さも


Meaning


Adverb

1. really; extremely "as if"(​Usually written using kana alone)


Examples:

黙ってろ。さもないと命はないぞ

Hold your tongue, or you'll be killed.


毎日新聞を読みなさい、さもないと時勢に遅れます。

Read the newspaper every day, or you will fall behind the times.


伏せたままでいろ、さもないと撃たれぞ。

Keep down, or you'll be shot.


Video form.




Note: さも/然も in most cases gives of the sense of "truly" or "really" from certain situations. In some situations you can use さも/然も in ways of describing a situation using word close to fit would be "as if"for instance.


Example:


彼はさも自分正しいように言っているだが、実は彼は間違えてる。

He says that as if he were right, but in fact he is wrong.

I added as if to the definition because there are still other forms of using さも/然も. But I think you'll get the idea how it is used.

Hey everyone, I hope you enjoyed the blog post! I'm a language consultant for Japanese people learning English. I’ve been a translator in JPN - ENG for more than 10 years which is the reason I became a consultant. I made an eBook for people who are learning Japanese that want to save a lot of time learning the language. I know it’s very apparent that Japanese takes a very long time to learn if you don’t know where to start. That’s why I made a book on all the experiences and hurdles I’ve experienced that you can avoid. If you want my book for free all you have to do is subscribe to my blog. I make videos on Japanese and English expressions and I also make those meanings very clear to learners on my blog.


I’m very passionate about this so I want to share as much as I know or will know. By signing up there will be a link to a discord with people who want to language exchange in Japanese and English. There you will find the book for free to download. If you like the book please leave a review so I can make the next book even better. I appreciate the ones that do this and I’ll add those reviews to my latest video.
