父は姉のセーターデパートで買いました。

Is this sentence wrong due to the が? Must an action verb like 買いました always use を?

I don't remember where I read it, but it said that in many cases, using が will not be wrong since it marks a statement. While if the verb require が (such as すき or 欲しい)it will be wrong to use を.

  • What would that sentence mean if it were correct? I am a native speaker and I have no idea what it means. My brain just won't take it. – l'électeur Mar 23 '17 at 14:04

  • Perhaps what you read about was は replacing を? – naruto Mar 23 '17 at 19:54
  • Also, it might help to understand that 買う is a verb while both 欲しい and 好き are adjectives – G-Cam Mar 23 '17 at 20:24

Yes, it is. セーター in your example sentence is a object, so you must use を because を is usually used for a object.

As for すき and 欲しい, you are right.
