‘e’ is a particle which is necessary before magaru in the Japanese language.
Basically when people speak, they tend to use wago and kango is used for writing.

Thanks for replying and explaining Yuki-san :)
however you added “e magaru”
what does that mean by the way?
and last question ..what is commonly used kango or wago?
with regards to back, right and left?
or maybe I should’nt ask cause I gues my question is kinda complicated.
maybe I just have to follow what’s in the list right?
but thanks again. have a nice day..

gladys lauren san,
konnichiwa.
The Japanese language has wago and kango.
Wago is Japanese original word and kango is introduced to Japan from China.
Koubuzaseki is kango and ushiro no seki is wato which has the equivalent meaning.
Usetsu and migi e magaru and sawetsu and hidari e magaru are the same as above.

why is back - ushiro and back seat - Kōbu zaseki? and why is sasetsu and usetsu left an right turn when right is migi and left is hidari?
I understand not all the words will be the same when combined with other words that gives different meaning - I am just wondering what could be the reason why they are not the same.
