I came across this sentence and I believe I understand what it is saying, but I don't understand why there is a と particle being used after さっき. Why is it not just さっき言ってる? As there is nothing that comes after さっき here


何? さっきと言ってることが違う!

What? That is different from what I was saying a moment ago!

A phrase is abbreviated, and it would be easy to figure out why "と" is required.


So, the sentence is comparing さっき「言ってたこと」 and 言ってること, so that it requires と.

That sentence is often used when someone is complaining/accusing that one changes his/her explanation.

  • I definitely would have not thought of that. Its makes sense though. These と particles are rough. Thanks! Jul 13, 2019 at 0:45
