Expression of comparison using NO HÔ GA and YORI
In Japanese, there are no comparative forms of adjectives. So, we express comparison by using YORI (than), and NO HÔ GA (more, better).
Japanese is a language with lots of onomatopoeia. A wide range of onomatopoeia in the Japanese language, from noises made by animals to expressions of feelings, is explained by audio.
I slept on futons for the first time. Grandma had aired out the futons for me. So, they were FUKA FUKA, and were very comfortable.
