I've been reading Manga raws lately and I keep seeing katakana and hiragana used together. I am a complete beginner, so I thought they were used seperately. What is the exact relationship between the two- and Kanji as well. I guess I didn't understand the guide as well as I thought. I learn best with examples, can someone provide one?
>>
>>133054885
Not that guy but this is a great idea. Though I rarely see my desktop since most of the time I'm on 4chan. Maybe setting it as an oneechan mascot would work better.
>>
>>133054905
A good example would be to go read all of the monogatari series.
>>
>>133054905
Manga that's aimed at younger audiences (shounen) uses hiragana in place of kanji readers might not know
>>
>>133054905
Why didn't you read Tae Kim?
>>
>>133054905

Katakana: Used for foreign loanwoards and also for emphasis
Hiragana: Everything else except kanji, or cases where the kanji is too obscure/author too lazy, or kiddie-speak

Not rocket science. But you probably shouldn't be reading raws yet
>>
>>133054905
All three writing systems are used simultaneously. Hiragana after a kanji are usually verb terminations or so. Look up onyomi, kunyomi, jukugo and okurigana.
>>
>>133054813
Wellington is in New Zealand.
Therefore, Wellington is in New Zealand.

>>133054905
You will see them mixed often with verbs, where the okurigana is in hiragana. Think of it as a means of expressing emphasis. バレる is a common enough example.

It'd make sense if it was the person you were calling a stupid ドヤ saying ど... どやって言われても as a defence, but it seems to be used to directly refer to ドヤ e.g. pic related with stupid animals which make up most of the image search for the term.

Maybe they just mean it in the sense of "they'd be a ドヤ even if you told it to their face" I dunno, was just wondering ever since I found this new term.

I memorize the mnemonics word for word for years, but it takes minutes on end to go from mnemonic to concept. RTK was a complete mistake.

Some god awful mnemonic. What blows my mind is A: they didn't even bother giving "organ plus small" its own radical when it shows up in a bunch of kanji, and B: they use RIBS as the name for the ソ looking motherfucker? It's a fucking variant of 刀, you stupid retards.

>>133056816

they also need to slow your progress because their SRS system "undoes" a rep when you fail instead of resetting the quality of the card

>person being called a ドヤ顔 s
You don't call someone a ドヤ顔. That doesn't even make sense. ~と言われても means "even if you say so", or more literally "even if I'm told that... (what can I do about it?)"
>>
>>133057020
Not only are you making extremely slow progress, you're actively hampering your understanding of the kanji by using complete bullshit radicals. Mnemonic based systems are fine, but not when they tear out all of the original hints and meanings. I bet it doesn't even mention that radicals often determine readings, it's overly simplistic garbage that's even worse than RTK because it's heavily restricted and costs money.
>>
>>133056544
Not even RTK is this fucking gay.
>>
>>133057119
it does
it often tells you "this has the same reading as this because the right half is the same as of this kanji you already know"

not saying it's perfect but having a kanji vocab learning combination is nice
>>
>>133057020
The radical on the right of 削 is the sword radical. That's a good name for it from a memorization point of view because it appears as an 意符 a lot of the time. Not only that, but if you ever want to talk about radicals it's better to know the name they actually go by than some random name that has nothing to do with its meaning.

I can't fathom a single good reason why somebody would call that rib and not sword. There are only downsides. It even looks more like a blade than it looks like ribs.
>>
>>133057229
There are much better options that are also free. Seriously, doing something like treating sword to the side as a completely different radical is absolutely insane, I can't imagine what they've done with shit like 水 and the left side of 浬.

In my case I save tons and tons of porn (i.e. nukige and h-games written in Japanese) and then have a fucking great time reading through them and making progress and not second-guessing my lifestyle at all.

The only time I feel bad about this at all is when I fap for four times a day or so in fervor at all the great porn there is in Japanese and the resulting headache and dickache far exceeds my unending arousal.

it's "probably" fine if you're outside of Japan and not hosting anything, only a couple of guys have been arrested for it in Japan and none overseas.

still, using closed source file sharing software that downloads random data and has huge amounts of actual cp on there doesn't seem like the smartest idea to me

Yeah, it's better to combine mining with 6k.
Most of the words in it are extremely useful.

I feel like I'm going to have trouble remembering vocab and the reading. The way I'm doing it now is previewing the card in browse mode, writing down the word/reading/meaning, saying it a few times. Then I go do the card and go 10 min > 30 min > 1 day.

Is there a better way? Like studying a certain amount of cards the day before then doing them? Looking for options/different ways people have had success with retaining vocab.

>>133066084
Because he said he doesn't want to do 6k, and the most commonly recommended alternative to that when using a premade deck is stopping at 2k (or at least slowing down) and shifting your vocab focus to mining.

>>133066158
Most of the words in it are common enough that you'll come across them in reading anyways, so it doesn't really matter too much as long as you're actually reading. Just up to personal preference I guess.

I'm currently 1st year in college majoring Japanese along with French
I'm ahead of the class atm and my professor's a bitch so I don't wanna ask her
I heard that you generally read words made out of entirely kanji with the on'yomi way, and words that contain both kanji and kana with the kun'yomi way
Is that true?
Then how about gaijin and koibito?
They're both entirely made out of kanji but one uses on and the other kun
Sorry for not posting runes I'm on my phone right now.
Could it be that gai and jin are two words fused into one and that's why?

Or, rather, there's many scholarships, but they don't even approach covering the full cost.

Most people end up paying about half of sticker price, after scholarships, via loans.

Of those, a plurality (possibly a majority?) are subsidized by the government, in that the government pays the interest. In either case you're on the hook for the principal.

School and major choice play a roll, but just for example, the absolute cheapest school in my area is a community college that will run you (just checked) $1500 / semester for a full-time student. Two semesters a year gives you $3,000, which means if you work part-time at minimum wage year-round or full-time over the summer you can just afford it, assuming you have zero other expenses. That, however, leaves you with only an associate's degree, which is only of mild usefulness. Good luck getting a bachelor's degree which will cost absolute minimum 3x that, and only then if you go to the absolute cheapest in-state school and are lucky enough to live in a state where said school is exceptionally cheap.

They're completely different concepts. The te-form can be used to link two clauses together just like the continuative can, but I can't think of any other similarities.

The te-form and the continuative form of i-adjectives look similar coincidentally but they're not related.

>That was a copy/paste error.
No thanks, if your method was so poor that you failed on 六, I don't want to touch your data with a 10 foot pole. And it remains that it's possible that we are operating on different data sets among a myriad of other factors. My data is correct for my deck's data. Your data is, aside from the unknown number of errors, maybe correct for your data.

It was called Kore before it was Core. That spreadsheet is based on the originally ripped data sets from the iKnow program. See above for the appearance of 六. Feel free to use the data.

It isn't my data. This is what koohii ripped from iKnow/Smart.fm and created the Core2k/6k decks from. You do understand that these decks predate DJT, right? The data you are borking at it is what the Core2k/6k decks are based on. Look it up if you want.

When you refer to people in the past, do you use あの人 instead of その人?

「ふ」というひらがな こう かいてください。
How do I know its こう instead of ああ?
>>
>>133076112
It's less about past and more about how you associate it with the speaker. In most cases, it would be あの人 because the person you are talking to is in the present.

>How do I know its こう instead of ああ?
The person is writing it. It's "write it like this".

On the question, you had to choose between writing  こう or ああ. And こう is the correct answer.
>>
>>133076576
Either context or just a bad question
>>
>>133076576
こう sounds more natural. Think of all the times you'd say it while writing something. If you had a blank there, naturally こう should come to mind.

That said, there's nothing grammatically incorrect about ああ. If you had two people standing far away from a third person, and the third person is writing kanji on a board, one of the two people could say to each other ああ書いてください. That'd be perfectly valid, it's just more contrived.

So if -ていた is used for 'was doing' such as I 'was eating' with 食べていた vs simple 'I ate' with 食べた、then what's the point of negative past tense -て form? E.g. 鍵を掛け忘れてた、'I was forgetting to lock the door'? Yet from what I've seen such is used to refer mostly to simple past tense, e.g. 'oh shit I forgot to lock the door'.
>>
>>133082425
ていた means "was in a state of", doesn't necessarily mean a longer action

for example 彼はもう帰っていた
he was in the state of having returned home already
in better english: He had been at home already (when I bla bla bla)

Yeah, I get the positive usage, it's the negative (act) usage that seems a bit odd like with that 鍵を掛け忘れてた example I posted. Though I just realised that's not the negative form as such but a negative act (neglecting to do something) so I fucked up my earlier post I see now.

I've seen that used again just by a character somewhere the moment they simply remembered they forgot to lock their door or the like. In English you'd just use simple past there, "I forgot to lock my door"/鍵を掛け忘れた, so just wonder what 忘れてた adds there.
>>
>>133082702
in the moment they say it they realised they had been forgetting it all up to now, if you translate it that information will be lost because in English you don't say it like that

just stop translating and think in Japanese

Sounds like some sort of past-tense narration to a police officer or something though, again from what I've seen it's used the moment they forget when in English you'd just say "I forgot oh shit"/etc. But I guess that'd be closer to a literal TL thinking about it, thanks.

I really need to set a consistent sleep schedule where I'm in bed by a certain time and up at a certain time. This has easily done more damage to my Japanese studies than anything else. I'm not kidding when I say that I might have an N1 certificate on my wall right now if not for this shit.

That would be pretty cool, but extremely hard to implement. Something like an anki extension that adds a picture from the clipboard to the last created card on a hotkey is probably possible.
Or maybe you won't even need an extention, lemme think about it.

>>133086038
Durara? It got some fantasy elements, but the language is pretty normal for the most part.

This, my mined cards and core cards are mixed anyway.

>>133086082

1000 card landmarks in anki always feel like a good occasion to break out the wine.
>>
>>133085965
The easiest way to go about it is just add
<img src="{{text:Word}}.jpg">
to the card template, that will show a picture named the same as this card from your collection.media folder.

All you have to do now is figure out the least intrusive way to name your screenshots appropriately.

My problem is that I'd be taking screenshots every minute at this point. Maybe 3 minutes at the longest.

Just make it so that you only have to press 1 key to save a screenshot into a folder, and it shouldn't bother you too much. You can sort it when you're finished reading or during your free time.

I've been trying not to drink since I started learning because it makes me feel lethargic and lazy all the next day and I wind up shirking my studies as a result.
>>
>>133086799
Sorting out a folder full of pictures after a long ass reading session sounds like absolute nightmare, to be honest. I'm thinking the best way to go about that is a screenshot utility that gives you "save as" dialogue as you hit the hotkey, you paste the word you just mined, hit enter and bam: you got your card with a cute little picture without much work and can continue reading. Gotta try that once I get some sleep.

You don't need to drink until you're completely shitfaced. Just a few glasses, enough to relax and enjoy the mood.

That's all it takes to have that effect on me the next day.
>>
>>133087187

That sucks.

For all of my health problems, alcohol doesn't really cause me any issues at all. There are no alcoholics in my family, either, despite some of them being heavy drinkers.

>drinking alcohol home alone
I don't see how that would be fun, do you guys actually enjoy alcohol?
I only drink it when I'm obligated to and even then I find the people I drink with to be more enjoyable than the drink itself
>>
>>133087552
Why would you ever be obligated to drink?
If the people you are with are nice enough, you don't need to get drunk to enjoy the moment.
>>
>>133087552
its best to drink alone - because then it doesnt warp your perception of people.
also you can limit yourself and arent dragged along into a drinking orgy

You're beyond help already. Go back to the basics, and stop inventing shit that doesn't exist.

>>133087552

Lots of people enjoy alcohol, both for the taste and for the sensation of being drunk. That's why it's popular for both parties and relaxation.
>>
>>133087581
birthday parties and the like, saying a toast together, etc.

>>133087651
I never really enjoyed consuming something to feel a specific sensation.
You feel happy but you aren't happy, completely useless if you ask me
>>
>>133087620

Yeah, yeah, じゃ = "Well", I got it. You're right that I could have just put "Well!" and been done with it.
>>
>>133087692
Well, you can always toast with a soft drink or whatever.
I don't drink, and people never complain about it.

Also, consuming something in order to feel a certain way is completely normal. For example, coffee makes you more "active".
>>
>>133087732
>coffee makes you more "active"
the only effect coffee has on me is that I have to pee.
I also quite often take a nap after drinking coffee

Guess everyone feels stuff like this differently

were you confused by "real tea"?

I don't know what's more annoying, that I didn't know about this kanji, or that it's way simpler than all the other fucking crying kanji and unused because of no reason.
