Learning particles and looking at
ga. From what I have seen
wa is the topic/general and
ga is for the subject/specific.
I was watching this video which had the following example:
I like Van Gogh's paintings.
Gohho no e ga suki desu.
I understand they are talking about Gogh's paintings specifically so they used
ga, but since there isn't plurals in Japanese from what I have learned so far and
ga was already used to refer to Gogh specifically and not a specific painting, how does one express the following?
I like this Van Gogh painting.
Fumbling around with translators it appears the entire sentence changes to add
I become the topic whereas before
I was omitted.
Watashi wa kono Gohho no e ga suki desu.
Still learning the basic sentence structures, but is that correct? Because I added
this/kono, the entire sentence must change to include myself as the topic? I was expecting to just be able to place
kono somewhere in the original sentence. When do I know I need to use
Watashi instead of just
