「たものだ」の情報

As mentioned the ものだ lesson, the combination of the noun (もの) 'thing', with the auxiliary verb だ forms a strong determination about whatever comes before it as being 'the way it is'. As an extension of this nuance, ものだ can be paired with verbs in the past tense, creating a phrase similar to 'I used to (A) in the past'. However, the literal meaning is closer to '(A) was the way it used to be'.
  • 子供(こども)(ころ)はよく先生(せんせい)(おこ)られたものだ
    I used to get yelled at by the teacher often when I was still a kid.
  • (むかし)はよく親父(おやじ)()()たものだ
    I used to go fishing with my father in the past.
  • (わか)(ころ)色々(いろいろ)苦労(くろう)たものだ
    When I was young, I used to suffer a lot.
Due to ものだ being a strong determination of something's existence/truth, this expression quite often carries the nuance that the speaker is nostalgic about (A), reminiscing about (A), or being introspective about (A). This means that it will not sound natural when describing things that are seemingly inconsequential, or have no meaningful significance.
  • 小学生(しょうがくせい)(ころ)毎日(まいにち)学校(がっこう)()たものだ
    I used to go to school everyday when I was an elementary student. (Unnatural, as this is a normal event)
  • (むかし)毎日(まいにち)のように親父(おやじ)けんかたものだ
    In the past I fought with my father everyday. (Natural, as this is a meaningful event)
When highlighting things in the past that are not particularly important, たことがある will be used instead.
  • 多分(たぶん)子供(こども)(ころ)()たことがある
    I may have eaten this when I was a kid. (Unimportant)
  • 子供(こども)(ころ)はよ神社(じんじゃ)(あそ)んだ(こと)がある
    When I was a kid, I played at the shrine a lot. (Potentially important, but not in this speaker's opinion)

    Hiii again
    Have you heard of the Hinative app? I recommend it, it was basically built for those kinds of questions! I haven’t used it in a while, but I would use it to check with natives if my sentences were natural. It’s really easy to get translations from multiple natives and learners alike, as well as corrections/suggestions on how to say something better

    thank you for your reply and valuable time.

    I’ve heard of it, yes. As you said, I think it is a useful site for this purpose. Have you tried ChatGPT? If you have heard or experienced it before, I do not want to make any additional explanations about it.

    I hope that there are many people at a higher level than me at Bunpro who can answer this question.

    Not bad yes. I liked it. It’s integrated with A.I., that’s great, I didn’t know that. Thanks for your advice.
