That KITE-eating tree broke my KITE!
The cloth fell from the UFO and broke when it hit the earth.
|( を ) こわ＊す||
I smash something , I break something.
|( が ) こわ＊れる||
something doesn't work anymore: your TV, your PSP, your dishwasher. Call the repair-person!
a collapse- said of a building, but also (figuratively) like 'The collapse of communism.'
Destruction. Ususaly used about bombs, or 'President Bush destroyed the economy,'. . . pretty much the same circumstances you'd use the English word. (BOOBOO: you can't use する with this one, for some reason. It's one of those nouns you can't verb)
You listen with your EARS.
You break a TV on the hard GROUND.
You are nostalgic with your HEART.
You GO along the path of virtue.
