[JLPT grammar] Can we say ピザを食べたいです ​also?

Today I am going to share the Q&A quoted from my JLPT N5 course!


[Student’s question]


can we say ピザを食べたいです also?
Or should we take が with たい?



[My Reply]


We can use both.

A verb that takes the particle を can have either the particle を or が when it is followed by たい.

I want to eat pizza.

I want to eat pizza.(Emphasizing ピザ)

The meanings of the two sentences are the same.
を is the object marker, and が, in this case, is the emphasis marker.
The difference is that a noun before が is emphasized more than when it is simply an object before を.


I hope my answer helps you.😊
