Native people use the って so many times. What is meaning of it?
1] って used after root verb e.g. わかってるって
2] だって. This is also used many time.
Any explanation based on these 2 points or additional points will also be helpful.
Hi , I'll try to explain as best as I can the「 って」
1）In the first example the「って」is a contracted form of 「という」which is used to report, in this phrase, what someone said. In this case it would mean "I 'm telling you I understand".
It can also mean "a Y called X"「 バラという花」= a flower called rose
2) As for 「だって」it's used for expressing the cause (because, since, as) or a disagreement ( but...)
It an expression often used by children.
A little warning both these expressions are not used in polite conversations and should not be used when writing.
I hope this helps !
って has a few more usages than those mentioned by Hemara.
In informal conversations it is often used as a topic marker (は).
It can be a used as a replacement for でも and ても.
As a replacement for the quotative particle と.
All these usages are highly colloquial.
Thank you for the reply Hemera and Halftheprice.
But I am still confused since it is used in so many variations.
1] 会議室 はどこだっけ
2] あなた は音楽が好きだったっけ
How is the usage in these 2 sentences? Thanks
っけ is different than って. It is used to recall information.
1. Where is the conference room again?
2. Did you like music?
(assuming you knew before, but forgot) (it's kind of casual)
