About て当然だ

当然(とうぜん) is a commonly used expression which indicates that '(A) is natural', or '(A) is a matter of course'. This is a combination of the て-form of either verbs of い-Adjectives (or で when used with nouns), the noun 当然(とうぜん) 'naturally', and だ.

    does “Verb[ ]” mean て-form ? If so, I think there is a problem with the sentence
    Is there one too many て or is it a contraction of 出ていて ? I’m asking since there is no other example sentence that uses ていて当然だ, including on japanesetest4you

  • mrnoone



    Yes, it is contraction from ていて.

    I have added non contracted forms as alternative answers.


    I changed it to あって当然 because it sounds more natural in this case
