This may be an easy question for the all of you.

I saw somewhere a form of ある which was written as あるな and had the same meaning. I've only heard the form あります and that's it.

What does あるな then mean?

  • Can you provide the full sentence that you saw? Jan 19 '19 at 11:11
  • The full sentence is ここ家がいっぱいあるな!

Most likely, あるな is simply ある (plain form of あります) with the sentence ending particle な, which wouldn't noticeably change the meaning in most cases. あるな isn't any type of form (to my knowledge).
