Group 2: Incase of group 2 or ichidandoushi, remove the end consonant "ru" and add "yo-u" to the verb. Changing verbs of this group into volitional form is very easy. Following are some examples of the verbs which belong to this group.
Group 3: As we all know that this group has only 2 verbs and they do not follow any rule hence, you have to learn the volitional form of these verbs as they have been given. Below are the two verbs:
Some more examples of this grammar pattern are:
I think that I will buy a good camera next month
I think that I will watch a movie with my friends today evening.
An example of this sentence pattern in a conversation is as follows:
A: You know! Miss Yoko did not come for last weekís trip. Was she probably ill?
B: No, I think that she was not ill. Probably, she may have been busy.
In the previous 2 sentence patterns we had learnt how to express oneís thought or idea. In this sentence pattern we will learn the way in which a person can express his/ her intension of doing a particular activity. Here a person intends to do something and therefore put his/ her efforts in achieving it. Hence, this intension of a person is expressed by using the phrase "tsumori desu" (tsu-mo-ri de-su). The verb which is used before "tsumori desu" has to be either in root verb or dictionary form or in nai form. This is a rule which has to be remembered always. Following are two examples of this form:
A: What do you intend to do in the future?
B: After completing my education in Electrical Engineering, I intend to work in a company.
A: Are you going to Kyoto this Sunday for a trip?
B: No, I am not intending to go.
4) The fourth sentence pattern will teach us the "tai" form of a verb. In English this form will mean "want to do". In other words, by using this form a person can express his/ her wish to do something. But always remember that when you are talking about the wish of a third person who is not present at the time of your conversation then, there is another form which you have to use. "tai" form of a verb is very easy to make. You just need to add tai at the end of the masu base form of a verb This rule is applicable to all the three groups of verbs. Tai form can be used in different sentence structures like "tai desu", "tai to omou" and "tai to omotte imasu", all three are correct. Another important rule to remember is that if in a sentence we have made use of transitive verbs then in that case the particle used to indicate the verb will always be "ga" and not "wo/ o". Following is an example of the use of "tai" form of verb:
A - What do you want to do after learning Japanese language?
B - Mr. Smith wants to marry Ms. Yukiko.
Mr. John wants to go to Hokkaido in the winter holiday.
Mr. Smith wants to marry Ms. Yukiko.
With this sentence pattern we have come to the end of this lesson. All the above sentence patterns are included in the volitional form of verbs. Learn the above grammar patterns slowly and one by one so that you donít confuse yourself.
