Hi Paul Sventek,


Thank you for your question!

We don't always have to insert "no" and can just say "yasai jūsu" or "yasai nōen",

when the first noun ("yasai") modifies the second noun ("jūsu" or "nōen"),

expressing what kind of [the second noun].

Or in other word, when you say "yasai no jūsu", it sounds like you emphasizes what kind of juice.

So if someone asks you what kind of juice you are drinking, you would say "yasai no jūsu desu."


Please let us know if you have any further question😊


Sincerely,

Miho

In today's Japanese Word of the Day (November 25, 2020) there are two phrases (among many other things) that are very confusing to me:


yasai jūsu

yasai nōen


Why aren't these phrases:


yasai no jūsu

yasai no nōen ?


I thought the particle no was used between two nouns when one noun modifies the other. That is what is happening in these two cases.

nice idea - after adding at least 3 month worth of words, i was looking for adding them as flashcards. however, i was not able to find that capability anywhere (or the list of collected words for that matter). what are these words then for?
