Abstract
This research aimed to compare and contrast the use of final particles Yo and Ne in Japanese with the particles Ya and Loh in Indonesian. It was motivated by Japanese language learners who often have difficulty in understanding or distinguishing between the functions and meanings of final particle Yo and Ne. Also, this research attempted to discover similarities and differences with particle’s Ya and Loh so that no translation errors occur which may result in changes in the context and nuance of a sentence. This research used a descriptive qualitative method and the data were in the form of 220 final particles Yo and Ne from 3 episodes of Japanese drama. By employing theory by Masuoka (1991), the results reveal that 30 out of 150 data of final particle Yo can be interpreted as Loh. Most of the particle Yo which have functions to indicate what the opponent needs to know can be translated as Loh. Whereas Yo which shows nuance of debater or critic is mostly translated as Kok. Then, 46 data from 75 final particle Ne can be translated as Ya. The main function of Ne which is used to confirm, to show awareness, and to ask approval can be translated as Ya. Yet, Ne which has a function to confirm and to ask for approval can also be translated as Kan.
