手王犬中天文出左右玉
田石正生白本目立耳字

Changing directions a bit. This lesson will deal with grammar and introduce the easiest sentence structure you'll see in Japanese. And here it is:

X は Y です
[X wa Y desu.]

That is the most basic way you can say: "X is Y." Before going further with what you can put in for X and Y there's something important. You see the three kana there, yes? The last two,...
