Japanese grammer notes

In this post i will try to simplify the essence of Japanese grammar rules. The verbs and adjectives are the core of Japanese grammar. These verbs and adjectives take different forms depending upon time(past, present,future), conjugation and level of respect shown.

An attempt will be made in this post to show all the rules in single place so that it can be grasped easily.

1. Japanese Language has basically three forms of verbs

Group I verb In this group, the last sound of the ます form is that of い line e.g. かきます; のみます
Group II verb In this group, the last sound of the ます form is that of え line e.g.たべます; みせます; みます*
Group III verb Verb of this group ends at します and noun denoting action +します e.g.

2. Japanese Language has basically two types of adjectives (い & な)

3. Verb has different forms viz. plane form, dictionary form, ない form, masu form etc

4. Rules to change to Te(て) form for verbs

Group I verb Depending upon the sound, the て form varies as follows e.g. かきます; のみます
Group II verb Replace ます with て e.g.たべます; みせます; みます*
Group III verb Replace ます with て e.g.

5. Present continuous tense (V-ing) form is represented as Vーて  います

Every night in my dreams, ,

I see you, I feel you

That is how I know you, go on.

Far across the distance,

And spaces between us,

You have come to show you, Go on…

Near, Far, Wherever you are,

I believe that the heart does, Go on.

Once more, you opened the door,

And you’re here in my heart,

And my heart will go on and on.

Multiple linear regression analysis with constraints

Here is how to do it:
Suppose the linear model is of the form y=b1x1+b2x2+b3x3,

subject to b1+b2+b3=1.

We have to do is simply re-express b3 as b3=1−b1−b2,
which is to say you are trying to build a model of the form

So create new variables y`=y-x3, x1`=x1−x3, and x2`=x2−x3, and perform the normal linear regression using these transformed variables as the independent variables.

Note that: In excel there is build in function called ‘solver’ which appears that it can be used by maximizing R^2 value and setting the constraints b1+b2+b3=1, but this wont work. The solver is good for solving ‘linear programming’ and not regression type of questions.
