indicates the capacity, role or function of someone or something
＊This is a compound particle which indicates the capacity, role, or function of someone or something.
FORMATION: Ｎ + として
＊Be careful! としては ([toshiteha]) has a different connotation. See that entry for more.
I used to find it hard to understand difference between toshite and nitotte. These examples may clarify sensei [nitotte]... = for the teacher (he was weird) sensei [toshite]... = as a teacher (I came to japan)
toshite is usually used to explain a role. not "as me" but as something - a teacher, a policeman.
does anyone know aything about としての ?
Welcome, Tori. I added some examples. FYI the link above "Search big database..." will find example sentences you can then cut and paste in.
also from #5880 onward are examples of としての .. the の usually seems to be used when preceding a noun. (kind of like a reverse noun clause?)
Thank you so much for that info
I have an important question. What's the meaning of the usage of 〜を〜として? チンさんを先生として、中国語の勉強会を開いた。 I don't understand the meaning of を. In this case, として should be translated as "as"? When and how I use the pattern 〜を〜として or 〜を〜とする or 〜を〜とした?
King [として] and [とする] are diffrent grammar points
李さん is the same thing as Mister Lee? I just knew this kanji as Sumomo...
