Particles

Particle TO (と) and / with


1. 

The particle と (TO) is used to join elements the same way as "and" does. と is repeated after each noun in the enumeration. や (YA) is also possible, but や means that the list is not complete, other elements could be added, whereas と clearly enumerates the exhaustive list.

2. 

TO can be translated as “together” or “with” to say that an action takes place with someone else. TO can be followed by 一緒に (ISSHO NI) meaning "together."

Watashi wa ryoushin to sunde imasu.
