What's its role in the sentence below?


1 Answer 1


It's 者【もの】, a word that means "person/people".

Unlike 人, it's usually used as part of a compound word (eg 田舎者), or at least modified by another word/phrase. It's also often used as the humble word for 人, which is not the case with your example.
