I know that the particle の can be used for linking several nouns together or to indicate possession. However I have seen several cases where the の is droped. Like for example 未来日記. My question is when to and not to use the particle no?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • 未来日記 is obviously different from 未来の日記 (diaries that will have been come into use in future), isn't it? – user4092 Jul 11 '17 at 10:09

From what I've seen, if its unambiguous it can be dropped. This rule applies to most particles. You hear native speakers do it all the time.


Is Yamada coming?

I can't think of too many instances where の is dropped off the top of my head but I its pretty common.
