Drill Question

Hello,

Just want to check,

The humble-pattern of mukaeru (go out to meet) is oshiharaisuru (to pay), odenwasuru (to call), and oshoutaisuru (to invite).

These are all correct?

 

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

How do you mean?  The humble form of each one?

The standard formation would be o + masu stem + ni naru, so the keigo form of mukaeru would be omukaeninarimasu, shiharau would be oshiharaininarimasu etc.

However I don't think it was explained in the keigo lesson - at least the one I've done, I'm only about halfway through the advanced lessons - but this rule cannot be used with single syllable stems.  Which is why you get things like goranninarimasu, omeshininarimasu etc.

Also you can't use the same rule with suru, you've got to replace it with sareru or use nasaru.  I *believe* the two can be used somewhat interchangeably, hopefully a native speaker can clarify here as to when to use each one. 

(I had my copy of Chibimaruko-chan's Keigo Lessons in front of me whilst typing this, corrections more than welcome.)

He is referring to the fact that a bunch of the drills are wrong for that lesson. It says one thing but the answers are all for another verb.

Ah, fair enough. Any excuse for me to revise keigo, I guess.

Thank you everyone! ande.davi: I just meant that when it asks me for the humble form of mukaeru, the options that appear are all related to different words and there is no option for omukaeshimasu. So yeah, i agree with everyone, the drills might be incorrect.

These drills are all incorrect. It is an issue with the drills from that lesson.
