Can somebody explain も here to me please? And why it is not の?


I know it is used to mean with or also (私もです - me too), but the above to me would be 私の暇な時 showing possession. Or is も meaning "when" somehow?

  • Show us the context before this sentence. In the context, some hint is surely written that it is inevitable to use "も" in this sentence. – mackygoo Jul 8 '17 at 13:00

  • @l'électeur およ? parsingが同じかな思て・・主語+{従属節}+主節、みたいな・・ごめん、消しますw – Chocolate Jul 8 '17 at 14:09

Parse it this way:


私 is the subject of the main clause 犬といっしょに近所を散歩します.
暇な時 is a subordinate clause.

"I also take a walk in my neighborhood with my dog {when I have free time}."

The も means "also/too", as in "I take a walk too, just as someone else does."
