Causative verbs

When you use a causative verb, think about nuance and context. This article explains the differences.
Words like "make", "force" and "let" are called "causatives". They show that a person does not choose to do an action themselves. They are asked to do it by another person who has some kind of power.
「Make」、「force」や「let」などという単語は使役動詞です。使役動詞とは動作の原因が自分の意志ではなく、何かしらの力を持った他人が自分に何かをさせることを示しています。
