なadjective Form

There are four なadjective forms:

  • なadjective Polite Form
  • なadjective Plain Form
  • Stem Form
  • て Form

To understand what they are, let’s use しずかな which means ‘quiet’ in Japanese, as an example.

なadjective Polite Form

You need to remove な from しずかな, then add the endings in bold below to speak in a polite way:

Present Positive しずかです quiet
Present Negative しずかじゃないです is/am/are not quiet
Past Positive しずかでした was/were quiet
Present Negative しずかじゃなかったです was/were not quiet

なadjective Plain Form

These ones are used when you speak in a casual way like talking with friends, whenever you don’t have to be polite.

How to make them:

Present Positive – change な of しずかな into だ
Present Negative – change な into じゃない
Past Positive – change な into だった
Past Negative – change な into じゃなかった

Present Positive しずかだ quiet
Present Negative しずかじゃない is/am/are not quiet
Past Positive しずかだった was/were quiet
Present Negative しずかじゃなかった was/were not quiet

Stem Form

しずかな → しずか

て Form

To make なadjective て Form, Remove な at the end of なadjective, then add で.
