Is just using an anki deck good?
Is it worth it to familiarize myself with radicals first or would that be a waste of time?
>>
>>133838103
Read moar.
>>
>>133836787
It's not worth spending time on, that's the sort of thing that will come naturally from just reading more. Even when talking to Japanese people they aren't gonna care if you write を決まる instead of を決める. That said there are some general rules of thumb that are worth learning, just know that they'll be wrong often enough.

>>133837655
Does the field have to contain the word "kanji"? If that's the case then I can't use it because it will conflict with another add-on I'm using. Too bad because I also want to see how many Kanji I have.

I just started and this is confusing me a bit.
たくさん means a lot.
多い means many.

Is the difference on which one is used in a sentence like much and many? If it can't be counted, たくさん, if it can, 多い?

Same with 見つかる and 見つける。Both means find but the former for physical objects and the last for non physical. eg. I found my liver for the former and I found my dignity for the latter?

英語みたいに、文法の都合で many が使えないからa lot of を使うみたいな規則はないとおもうよ。
>>
Reading the guide is hard
>>
>>133838718
たくさん is a na-adjective
多い is an i-adjective
they don't correspond to english "much" and "many" at all

雨が多い - There is a lot of rain.
人が多い - There are many people.
ケーキをたくさんたばた - Ate a lot of cake.
etc.

見つかる and 見つける are different in that one is transitive and one is intransitive.

ケーキが見つかる - Cake was found.
ケーキを見つける - I found a cake.
>>
So I just started memorizing katakana and it's going good but I thought of something.
Words in japanese that have repeats like peach.
Are both 桃 and  もも acceptable?
The former I got off google translate to test it myself but the latter would still translate to peach so I'm really confused.

Thanks, I think I am getting it.
多い can't be used as adjective.
So I can't say 多い人 but I can say たくさんの人 or use it as part of a sentence not directly modifying the noun.

Saying which was transitive/intransitive cleared it up for me.

What's the deal with some words having an apostrophe mark when romanized? What are they supposed to represent?
>>
I feel like my reading speed is picking up noticeably.

It's still very slow (partially on account of the fact that I'm adding words to anki and still check DoJG on occasion), but there are more and more pages where I can click as soon as they're done speaking, and don't even need to glance at the text hooker. There were actually a few lines where the address of the text had changed and the text hooker wasn't doing its job, and I didn't even notice.

Though on the topic of text parsers, I think that the furigana features get an undeserved bad wrap. If you're looking to improve your listening skills (which you obviously should be; even if you never watch shows, you're bound to run into voiced lines with no text sooner or later), following the furigana as they speak is great.

I was thinking last night in bed, wouldn't it be great if kanji used dakuten and handakuten to show when their reading is changed in jukugo

Like 頃 for ころ and 頃" for ごろ, or 時 and 時" etc

Feel like it would be a pretty simple way to make kanji readings a bit easier, not that it's that much of a problem in the grand scheme of things
>>
>>133841406

The issue is that the Japanese themselves have no reason to give a shit, because they know which one is in use.

And as you get better, you lose reasons to give a shit, too.
>>
>>133841216
Wouldn't that usually be just minna? And in the example I posted, she doesn't even say it as unnei, it's just unei.

I've never seen the apostrophe mark mentioned anywhere, and I see it used extremely rarely.
>>
>>133841406
That'll happen right after they abolish katakana and consolidate Kanji readings.
>>
I'm a complete beginner, and all of this is kinda overwhelming.

I read the start-up guide, but where EXACTLY should I start? I'm a bit confused.
>>
>>133841470
This. The Japanese are not going to change their ancient fucking language so some gaijins can learn it easier. It's so autistic to think that they would
>>
>>133841570
The start-up guide says EXACTLY where you should start, kana.
>>
>>133841406
You have to remember that for a native the normal process is knowing the spoken word before knowing how to write it. By the time they learn to write the dakuten is pointless since they already know the pronunciation by heart.
>>
>>133841552
It says un'ei and not unei because it's うんえい not うねい
>>
>>133841406
The pronunciation shifts are immediately obvious in dialogue, though.

I don't think I've ever run into a new word where I've gone "oh, if I knew that せ was a ぜ, I would have recognised it".

I can only see them being a minor problem for people who are stupid enough to learn the language entirely through text without listening.
>>
>>133841570

It tells you where to start, dipshit. Try actually reading it.

>all of this is kinda overwhelming

And stop with the drama. I swear, short of teammates fucking up team assignments with their bullshit (which is admittedly on a whole other level), nothing is more annoying in a learning environment than idiots timidly going on about how intimidated they are. Just put your nose to the grindstone and get to work.

>>

Beat me to it.

Synonyms are common in both English and Japanese. We even have guides specifically dedicated to them, called "thesauruses". They're a common aid for writers looking to spice up their language.

And 狼男 and 狼人間 are just "wolf" with "man" or "person" after them, making them effectively identical anyway, requiring absolutely no memorisation.

人狼 is literally just a spergy literary term in much the same way lycanthrope is, using onyomi to make the whole concept of wolf-people seem tied to Japanese mythology in some way.

Japanese: The Manga Way, then start the DoJG deck. The first will properly introduce you to Japanese using actual native sources and the latter will help more than anything else in the short term.

>>
>>133842222

onyomi: ichi
kunyomi: hito

Every single counter word combined with 一 uses one of those. Typically on'yomi when the counter is in on'yomi and kun'yomi when the counter is in kun'yomi. The same can be said for every other number.

一歩: いち+ぽ(on'yomi) = いっぽ
一袋: ひと+ふくろ(kun'yomi)=ひとふくろ

ついたち is ateji, it comes from 月立ち. いちにち is also a word and it uses on'yomi+on'yomi too.

あの...何だか
>>
>>133845801
J-cat increases the difficulty when you get a question right and decreases it when you get them wrong, until it's found your level, then stops there when it's reasonably sure that level is correct (and not just lucky answers)
>>
>>133845801
J-CAT is different. It benchmarks your general skill level with a wide difficulty of questions and then hones in by giving you questions that are increasingly narrow in level. That's part of why it's strictly computerized and uses a plugin instead of being a list of questions on a page.

That's a very beneficial trait to have in a long distance relationship, but there are other things that can toll on you. Just existing in the same room as them is comforting.

>>133847133
That's apparently incredibly difficult for normies. They'd rather betray trust, lie, and juggle relationships for no reason other than to have a variety of people to sleep with, which is pure greed.
>>
>>133847133
Most normal people would have difficulties with it, in this kind of scenario.

The thought of having to wait for years, and sacrificing other potential relationships in an effort to remain "faithful" and in the end come out with something that might not even be rewarding, isn't a very attractive option in my opinion. Just too many points of failure on both sides.

0) Before you do ANYTHING, install Load Balancer
1) Disable new cards, enable leech suspension
2) Do as many reps as possible between your two decks, take that number and split it between the two decks as your daily reps limit
3) Do your reps like this until you've hit a point where you have a reasonably low number of new cards
4) Re-enable new cards and start unsuspending leeches (don't unsuspend them all at once or you'll have to do this all over again); You can disable leech suspension if you want but I really recommend to keep it on for a week until you get back into your groove

The Japanese language, Japanese in short, is the main language used by the different races of people living on the island.

It is an undisputed fact that Japanese is the lingua franca of Japan.

SVO language like English. Constituents are decided by word order.
Words has no inflection at all.
Uses aspect instead of tense.
Has four phonematic tones. Using the wrong tone is akin to pronouncing a word using /d/ instead of /t/.

Instead of having voiced / unvoiced consonants (/d/ vs /t/ Chinese has unvoiced / aspirated consonants (/t/ vs /tʰ/)
Seven basic vowels that can be combined into diftongs and trithongs (or glide+vowel depending on how you look at it).
The potential vowel combinations + tone makes for a staggering number of different vowel sounds you need to be able to differentiate between.

>Chinese has unvoiced / aspirated consonants (/t/ vs /tʰ/)
Explanation for EOPs like me: Aspiration is like having an unvoiced mora after the consonant. English doesn't differentiate on it at all, so an unvoiced consonant can be aspirated or unaspirated at will. Chinese differentiates on the aspiration rather than the voicing. So in english:


(g) (k kʰ)

Wheras in chinese:

(g k) (kʰ)

If you're so afraid of having other people chime in on your translations, you shouldn't post them publicly. Or perhaps you should just stop taking yourself so seriously.
>>
>>133853402
Maybe you shouldn't have acted so smug while posting a translation USING WORDS FROM THE OTHER LANGUAGE. Or maybe I'm thinking too much into it. Either way I apologise and I'm going to finish my reps then off to bed for me.

What makes this shit so difficult is that you have are series of phonemes like these:
/t͡sʰ/ /t͡s/ /s/
The first /t͡sʰ/ is pronounced like a /t/ going into an /s/. What you do for this is creating a sharp wind tunnel directed at your teeth. This creates a sharp sound, which is what the Chinks are listening for when they differentiate this compared to its unaspirated partner /t͡s/.
For /t͡s/ you need to somewhat block the sharp airflow from going against your teeth compared to how you articulated the former sound.

Problem is that /s/ in itself can sound very much like /t͡sʰ/ for the untrained, the /t/ is very subtle at times and the /s/ can be very sharp.

N3 and better are recognized by employers.

In terms of probability, your chances of passing a multiple choice test with four answers per question when you don't know shit quickly becomes worse than winning the super lotto. Even repeated cases of 50/50 quickly start looking bad for you, because your odds of getting them all correct is 0.5 (50%) * 0.5 (25%) * 0.5 (12.5%) * 0.5 (6.25%)..., not just a plain 50%. You have to know what you're doing in order to pass.

There's really nothing stupid about taking the JLPT.

>N3 is nothing.

N3 would be for shit like a chef at a western-style restaurant or an employee at the American embassy. Having people on hand who speak a little Japanese is better than having people on hand who speak no Japanese.

Obviously, if your coworkers are Japanese, and/or if your job calls on high level Japanese skills, you're going to need an N2 or N1.

Use the DoJG deck two anons recentlyish overhauled.

For to add the link, my bad. From thread #1289
Folder:

Decryption key:
!I3_D5C9_NyysiMHOfr0pkw
Mega seems to have changes their system or something and I can't access the folder without copy/pasting that decryption key into a prompt after following the folder link. There is a request in the feedback section for it to be added to the guide proper but no follow up from the maintainers. Shame, really.

>>133865565
Visualizing Japanese Grammar has word lists for each lesson, and it involves full audio and animation to give full context to the words used.
Example lesson one:
http://www.gwu.edu/~eall/vjg/01sentencetypes/01sentencetypes.html
Wordlist for the example:
http://www.gwu.edu/~eall/vjg/vjghomepage/wordlist01.htm

It is hard to avoid a bit of a vocab dump because it's damn hard to provide relevant examples for grammar with an extremely limited pool of words.

>>Mega seems to have changes their system or something and I can't access the folder without copy/pasting that decryption key into a prompt after following the folder link.
There's no change to Mega. Ordinarily the decryption key would be appended to the URL, but whoever gave you that link decided to share the link privately meaning the decryption key must be entered manually. I really can't understand why they did this though since they're sharing the decryption key publicly (the intended use of private links is to make it so that only you and maybe a select few people who you decide to share the key with have access to the folder in question).

Just add the decryption key to the end of the URL like so and it works normally:

The deck has tags for each volume and I think by default the cloze cards are suspended.
基本 = Basic
中級編 = Intermediate
上級編 = Advanced
My deck has the notes (as images) for all of the Basic cards and the first 36 cards of the Intermediate cards. Not sure what is happening about the rest but I'll be adding them to my own deck because they've been so useful as they reference and explain the example sentences to a greater depth. Easier than stopping reviewing and flipping through the relevant book to read it there.

They only require you learn the words in the example sentences. In fact TK doesn't even do that since you can hover over the words and get the meaning instantly, which you could do with rikai-sama anyway even if TK hadn't been this considerate. If you can't be bothered to learn the words don't, nobody is forcing you to and they're not what the guide is for.

>>133866698
I didn't bother trying to learn them when I did it because I quickly realised that trying to learn as many words as he was dumping on me was impossible if I wanted to get through the guide at anything faster than a snail's pace.

The problem is, example sentences full of words you're unfamiliar with (or only just seeing for the first time in many cases) are far less effective at demonstrating grammar than sentences full of words you know and are familiar with. Trying to absorb the grammar point while at the same time having to mouse over half or more of the words in the example sentence to see what they even mean makes learning the grammar a lot harder than it needs to be, for no benefit at all.
>>
>>133866890
As a beginner, you're going to end up translating it in your head no matter what you do, having to spend half a second hovering doesn't hurt a bit.
>>
>>133866890
Then learn the words in the example sentences moron. You can't have your cake and eat it at the same time.
>>
>>133867014
>>Then learn the words in the example sentences moron.
I would have had to stop for days before moving onto each new lesson to memorise a vocabulary list that way moron.

As I said, there is no tangible benefit at all to dumping any more words than are absolutely necessary to illustrate the grammar on readers of a GRAMMAR guide.

But whatever, keep sucking Tae Kim's dick if you want. He can't ever be wrong, after all. I can't be arsed to argue anymore since this issue is no longer of any relevance to me.

So is the only way to get a conditional past tense across (e.g., If I did/had done that) to use past tense + なら / ならば?

I mean since while たら・だら is based on the past tense form it doesn't seem to actually convey any tense when constructed that way. Same with ば which is its own thing and と which seems to only work with present tense. So is there no other way?

I didn't reply because I didn't understand any of the grammar terms you posted, I'm not even sure what a past sense form is
>>
>私……ドキドキ、してきちゃうじゃない
>してきちゃう

Is this supposed to be 来る attached to a te-form word? Tae kim says it's to "show that an action is oriented toward or from someplace", but there was no location-oriented context to suggest that it was this type of grammar. "Accidentally doing and coming" doesn't seem to make much sense either, if it's not the previous grammar. And is じゃない supposed to make the whole thing negative or is it just the affirming/questioning grammar?

>the answers are on the fronts of the cards
There is a cloze type. Pic related. How I use the recognition cards is by reading through them, making sure to carefully read through the notes the first time I see a card. On subsequent reviews I read through everything, aside the notes, unless I'm really struggling with the sentences and how the concept/structure works.

For the cloze cards I am unsuspending them as the related recognition card matures. It's pretty intuitive. You might need to expand your appreciation of Anki; it's more than just a basic flash card system.

As structures get more complex, the language involves naturally becomes more complex. Using an extremely limited pool of vocabulary to express a wide range of structures as they are naturally used is ironically providing less practical information. Minimal information does not necessarily equate to minimal vocabulary, and placing arbitrary unnatural restrictions makes it harder to properly convey information.

When did notes get added to the intermediate volume part?
>>
>>133869543
Read through page 403 (しまう - it explains ちゃう) and page 221来る・くる (2). This should provide a lot of explanatory power to your current understanding.

>>133869602
The current deck in the mega link has like 30 odd for the Intermediate part when I downloaded it. I've added another 20 or so to my own deck.

Most of the examples I find are for hypothetical future/tara ii/etc though, e.g.

>私が、香港に行ったら一緒にいてくれますか?
>If I go to Hong Kong will you go with me?

Is there a difference in pronunciation between "oo" and "ou", or is oo always written as "ou"?

I'm referring to the hiragana characters, just writing kana on my phone is a huge pain.
>>
>>133870140

Generally an audible difference, and no not always written the same why would they be.
>>
>>133870140
Yeah, they're different.
>>
>>133870140
u can either lengthen the o or not, it technically depends on the word.
>>
>>133870188
>>133870184
>no not always written the same why would they be.
I dunno, I've just yet to see oo.

If there wasn't an audible difference it'd just be a stylistic choice, but as you've informed me, there is

>>133870203
What does that mean? How could it not lengthen the o? Are you saying it's sometimes just silent, or...?

if you have rikai, press f on these:

問う

>>133870253
おう is used for おお in kanji readings for some reason
most words with a long o (by individual word) are based on kanji readings
->
????
>>
>>133870341
>for some reason
It's called China.

Native japanese words are usually おお with limited exceptions like お父さん and whatnot.
