28 Examples: Do You Still Think “But” is ”が”?

Although a lot of Japanese learners think “But” is “が”, it sounds pretty weird for us in daily conversations. Could you figure it out what you have to say instead of using “が” in daily conversations? After reading this, you would be answering this question. Let me introduce what their subtle differences are and how you correctly use them such as native speakers today!

[wp-svg-icons icon=”arrow-right-2″ wrap=”span”] But / 但是 / ~지만 / Nhưng

“けど” means “But” and which has been used as the meaning of “to introduce an added statement, usually something that is different from what you have said before”. The basic way to use it is “Aけど、B。(A but B)”, etc. For instance, “きたいけど、けない。(I want to go, but I can’t.)”, “かんがえたけど、わからない。(I thought about it, but I don’t know.)”, etc. The tips for using it are that “けど” is used in daily conversations as casual and even polite such as “きたいけど、けないよ。(I want to go, but I can’t.)” as casual and “きたいけど、けません。(I want to go, but I can’t.)” as polite. Although “But” is “が”, we don’t normally use “が” in daily conversations and if you use “が”, it would be pretty weird. For instance “きたいが、けないよ。(I want to go, but I can’t.)” and “きたいが、けません。(I want to go, but I can’t.)” which we can understand what a person wants to say, but again it sounds pretty weird. In business situations, you would say “きたいのですが、けそうにありません。(I’d like to go, but I wouldn’t be able to go.)” as formal or “うかがいたいのですが、うかがえそうにありません。(I’d like to go, but I wouldn’t be able to go.)” which is more polite. Or some people think “But” is “しかし” and it also sounds pretty weird when using it in daily conversations such as “きたいです。しかし、けません。(I want to go. But I can’t.)”. So, I’d recommend that you use “けど” in daily conversations as casual and polite and it would sound more natural. In business situations, “___ですが” is better such as “きたいのですが___(I’d like to go but___)”. Since everybody could use “けど”, why don’t you use “けど” as the meaning of “But” from today? Lastly, “けど” tend to change “だけど”, when there is “ん” before “けど” such as “おもしたんだけど___(I just remembered, but___)”, “ダメなんだけど(You’re not supposed to, but)”, etc.
