Yamada-Mr. as-for is qu] Is Mr. Yamada here? 42 THE PRESENT Koko ni seikyusho ga gozaimasu. [here in bill (or check) sj is] Here is a bill (or check). Sensei ga irasshaimasu. [teacher sj comes] The teacher comes. The teacher will come. The Present The verb form which is given in the dictionary is called the present or the present final. It always ends in -u.
