[Q&A] Can we use “を” twice in a sentence?

Today I am going to share the Q&A quoted from my JLPT N4 course!



Can we use “を” twice in a sentence?
like, “部屋を掃除をしたあとで…”.
It sounds incorrect…




[My Reply]

Basically, we can’t use particle を twice for the same verb.

[noun]を[noun]を[verb] In this sentence, there is only one verb “する”.

So, you should change the sentence to;

[noun]を[verb] 掃除する is a verb.

[nounのnoun]を[verb] We can say 部屋の掃除 as a big noun.

If each を applies to a different verb, we can use を more than once in the same sentence.

[noun]を[verb], [noun]を[verb].
I bought an apple and left the store.


I hope my answer helps you. 😊
