In Japanese, there are two words used to say “something”, “anything”, and “nothing”; 何か/なにか/nanika and 何も/なにも/nanimo
何か/なにか/nanika using in a positive statement means “something”, while 何か/なにか/nanika used in a question means “anything?”. 何も/なにも/nanimo is used in negative questions, and means “not anything”, or “nothing”.
These two words are used in place of the particles は/ha, が/ga, and を/wo, and thus can be used alone without particles. Later, we will learn what we need to do when other particles would be used.
And some examples:
猫（ねこ）が何か（なにか）持ってきました（もってきました）。neko ga nanika mottekimashita. - The cat has brought something
猫（ねこ）は何か（なにか）食べましたか（たべました）。neko ha nanika tabemashitaka. Has the cat eaten anything?
いいえ、猫（ねこ）は何も食べませんでした。iie, neko ha nanimo tabemasendeshita. No, he cat has not eaten anything.
Well the title says it all really. I’m leaving tomorrow. As far as I can tell I’ve nearly got everything sorted, everything packed. A few more bits and bobs to go in.

Why not check out my food blog?
But don’t worry, I will still be writing and posting photographs over at Oxford2Osaka.
