Japanese Verbs for Polite Form


When an individual starts learning Japanese verbs, the first form of verb introduced will be the masu form. Japanese language does not have three different tenses. The Present tense and the future tense of a verb is the same.

Therefore, masu form of a verb is used either for present tense or for the Future tense. The "mashita" or "kakokei" form is used as the past tense of a verb. To change a verb from masu form to kakokei just remove masu and add mashita. In the same way while changing a verb from masu form into a present/ future negative tense, which is the "masen" form, remove masu and add masen. While changing a verb into Past negative tense, which is "masen deshita", remove masu and add "masen deshita". These rules are the same for all three groups of verbs. This form of verb is very basic in Japanese language. The polite form is used in daily conversations also. Following are the tables of all the verbs divided into their respective groups.
