Today’s Grammar Point: ~からなる

~からなる is an expression to mention something’s components or to indicate what something “is made (up) of ~”/”consists of ~.” As something being made of ~ is a condition that lasts for a while, it is often used in the form of ~からなっている. ~からなる/~からなっている is a rather formal expression. If you are mentioning ingredients, ~からできている (more like “be made from ~”) or ~でできている (more like “be made of ~”) is more common.


  • [noun] + からなっている
  • [noun] + からなる
