【VたりVたり します】

Grammar

【VたりVたり します】



Suppose these are what you did yesterday.

・cleaning your room

・washing clothe

・watching movie

・playing the guitar

・karaoke

・studying Japanese

・going to the gym

And, what if I ask you, “What did you do yesterday?”, how would you answer?

Would you say, “I cleaned my room, washed clothe, watched movie….”?

While you are answering, I would go home, because it may take forever!!!

Most of the people would pick up a few things from what they actually did,

such as “watching movie and going to the gym”.

This is how we use 「Vたり、Vたり します」.

In the case above, I would say

「映画(えいが)を見(み)たり、ジムへ行(い)ったりしました。」.




「Vたり Vたり します」construction picks up some “representatives”
(or you may say “examples”).

Ex.)

・公園(こうえん)へ行(い)ったり、買(か)い物(もの)したりしました
I went to the park, went shopping, and so on.

・犬(いぬ)と散歩(さんぽ)したり、料理(りょうり)を作(つく)ったりします
I am going to take a walk with my dog, make some food, and so on.

・ニューヨークへ行(い)ったら、自由(じゆう)の女神(めがみ)を見(み)たり
タイムズスクエアで写真(しゃしん)を撮(と)ったりしたいです
When I go to NewYork, I want to see the Statue of liberty and take some pictures in Times-square, and so on.

 

あした、何(なに)をしたいですか。(What do you want to do tomorrow?)
