第127課: ~とおりに & ~ように

通り literally means "street" or way in which something goes or is transmitted. However, it is often used similar to English "as...say." 


     The とおり of this discussion is an adverbial noun and describes the way in which something is supposed to be like. It may seem very similar to ~ように, but there are few slight differences. It is essentially a means of paraphrasing to show that something is being done 100% the same way as something.

~ように, on the other hand, is used in telling/showing that something is being done similarly to what it attaches to. There is also an added sense of hope from the speaker, which makes that 100% unattainable even more so. There is interchangeability when one is illustrating and showing hope, but if it is stilted to one side, it becomes inappropriate.

When attached directly to nouns, とおり becomes どおり. To attach ~ように after a noun, you need to make it ~のように. Also, both of these patterns can be in between noun phrases as ~どおりの and ~のような respectively.

I'm Moving!

I will moving the think tank, which is myself, to a new location this weekend and will be low on funds for a while. New lessons are still being made, but any donations at this time would greatly be appreciated.
Aside from the Donation tab, there are also two GoFundMe campaigns to help out.
