Well, guys, I guess this is it. These past 2 years have been nice and I'm grateful to you all, but now that I'm fluent in Nihongo (Japanese), I don't have any reason to frequent DJT anymore.

I always thought it was funny how people in our culture like to use curse words so casually in everyday life (usually because they think it's cool)
that when the time comes to emphasize something they find they have nothing available to them to signify "now I really mean it" so they just come up with increasingly unique/aggressive ways to say the same thing.

If one is "I won't let you pass"
the other one is just "you pass won't be let by me"
One is just passive.

>cursing means you're emotionally tough

This is interesting because I've always been regarded as well-spoken and intelligent by my peers but I fucking swear all the time; even when explaining something complex and technical and even during formal meetings.

I also live alone and haven't had a girlfriend since I was in high school. I don't socialize offline at all. I am steadfast in all that I do, and I'm not bouncing off the walls.

You can say 「僕は君を行かすわけにはいかない」 (I won't/can't let you go), but you cannot say 「僕は君を行かされるわけにはいかない」 because you have to replace 「を」 particle with 「に」 to be grammatically correct. But this changes the meaning to "I cannot be made to go by you" (「僕は君に行かされるわけにはいかない」). This expression is pretty awkward even if it's grammatically correct.

Anyone know who the guy is that the news in Japan is going crazy about, the guy who cheated on his wife with 5 different women.
Why is cheating so weird in Japan, they just get forgiven and with a public apology and then everything is fine.

http://www.yukawanet.com/archives/5025977.html

I assume the religious differences mean they aren't so focused on infidelity and the cultural differences like they used to be able to have more than one wife.

Japan is stuck in the 1800s and thinks it's not really a big deal if the husband cheats on the wife.

even in this apology notice on his website, his wife apologies to everyone because "as a wife I am responsible".

Having a little trouble with the following:
捜査当局は、男がパリの同時テロ事件に関連した調べなどが進むなかで追い詰められ
It comes from this:
>ベルギーで起きた連続テロ事件で、実行犯の男のものとみられるパソコンに「いずれ捕まることになる」と書き残されていたことが新たに分かり、捜査当局は、男がパリの同時テロ事件に関連した調べなどが進むなかで追い詰められ、犯行に及んだ可能性もあるとみて、捜査を進めています。
Does Verb + なかで, X, mean that X is occuring within the timespan of the verb? How is this different from 間?At the point 追い詰められ, isn't the subject still 捜査当局? Because it's in passive form, doesn't this mean that 捜査当局 themselves have been driven into a corner or tracked down? I know that with context I can tell that it's the opposite situation but I would like clarification about the grammar.
>>
>>139016138
Can ながら and のに be used interchangeably to emphasize that two clauses are opposite in meaning? For example, in this sentence from All About Particles, it looks like you could use either and it would have the same meaning
>高木さんが体が弱いと言いながら、よく夜遅くまで酒を飲んでいる。
>Although Takagi says he is in poor health, he often drinks late into the night.
Or am I just missing some subtle difference?

>>139016138

>毎日漢字を勉強しているのによく覚えられません。
I haven't really studied how passive is used, however the the dictionary says a common characteristic of the Japanese passive is that the event is not under the control of those affected by it. Is that why it's used here? Does the sentence make sense without the passive?

I don't really know why I stumbled across this, and it's probably still ahead of what I am learning currently, but my understanding is that this can be used to say you did not do something. For example, 知らなかった and 知らず translate to roughly the same thing, right? Japanese keyboards seem to recognize it as a valid sentence, but I'm sort of reluctant to use it because I don't know exactly what it means. Translators also seem widely inconsistent when I try different verbs such as 分からず、寝ず、etc.

TL;DR: What is the difference between なかった and ず verb ending?

Still trying to understand the NHK News, but I encountered a sentence which is giving me some trouble and I have an inclination - but cannot resolve part of it.

http://www3.nhk.or.jp/news/html/20160318/k10010448831000.html

The sentence is: このため自衛隊は部隊の展開を進めていて、PAC3のほかに、高性能レーダーを備えた海上自衛隊のイージス艦を日本の周辺海域に派遣するなどして北朝鮮に"動きがないか"警戒することにしています。
I understood everything else without issue, but I am wondering if my inclination is correct. The final clause seems to say: "(The JSDF) ...will be vigilant even if there there is no action by North Korea." The weird part is the non-movement matter with the ka particle which I think can be translated as "If there is no movement". It makes sense, militarily, but is the focus on the JSDF watching the North Korea's (continued) non-movement with vigilance (from now) or despite the non-movement (of the past week)?
Also, this article is N2-level right? The only weird words were "破壊措置命令", "周辺海域" and the "迎撃" part of 迎撃ミサイル besides my confusion stemming from the rather complex sentence.

It's a "whether A or not" clause. It doesn't logically matter whether it's a negative or positive. In Japanese, a negative is often used.

I just woke up and did my reps. Feels fucking great.

I used to be really hung up on mining my new daily cards on the same day I do them, since it gives me a chance to remember them when they pop up in Anki after reading them. But when you have to mine your words before doing your reps, it's too easy to put it off. By the time I've mined my words and can do my reps, it's so late that I'm tired and the words barely stick anymore.

Just mining everything you might need to review whenever you read anything is definitely the best way to go. Even if you end up with 200+ new cards that you'll have completely forgotten you added by the time you get them, it's totally worth it to be able to do your reps first time in the morning.

How do you people learn kanji?
I tried a kanji deck and had a hard time remembering them with no good context for them
I tried RTK, it had no readings so I dropped it
I tried core6k, I felt like I only really learned the words and general shape of the kanji and would keep confusing similiar looking ones

I did core 6k, started reading regularly, used heisig for a while and then dropped it. Since finishing 6k I've been doing mined decks and reading. I think Heisig's story thing is useful but it just wastes so much time. I would probably recommend looking up the heisig number on kanji you confuse and then going backwards through the elements they are made up of instead of going through the whole sequence.

Anyone else think that it feels easier to practice with things that aren't fun?

I can spend hours reading/listening to those more intermediate and advanced Nihongonomori grammar lessons where the lessons are all in Japanese and there are no English subtitles, but it's hard for me to stop my mind from wandering when I try to read a VN or some manga.

As long as everything feels like a chore then I can stay focused because it feels like I'm studying, but as soon as that line between studying and fun begins to blur then my mind switches to free-time lazy mode as if I was taking a break and playing a video game for fun and not for studying.

I dread the day that I finish all of these lessons and I have to switch to fun things. My progress will probably die.

I wonder if the Japanese people on the English equivalent of DJT read books like this and argue about what it means.

>Ef it wuz HIM dat 'uz bein' sot free

>Ef - (Old Saxon conjuction) 1. If, when
>Wuz - (South Scots) simple past tense of be
>Dat - Representing a colloquial pronunciation of that, likely from African American vernacular.
>Uz or Oghuz Turks, a group of loosely linked nomadic Turkic peoples
>Bein (genitive Beins or Beines, plural Beine) - leg of a person, animal or object
>From Middle English sot, from Old English sot, sott (“foolish, stupid”)

>"You retards are never going to learn English if you can't understand context. It's obvious that Tom Sawyer is cleverly utilizing context and a mixture of Old Saxon dialect, South Scottish dialect, African American vernacular, and Old English to tell Huckleberry that he will be the fool when the leg of the nomadic Oghuz Turks is free. He may metaphorically referring to a possible Turkish invasion of the Mississippi River that will happen in a later chapter."

You know, if we had two threads, he wouldn't be able to post every minute in both of them. We just have to disguise the second one as something else. How about a raw manga general? We can even link to the DJT site under the pretense of pointing at the CoR for raw manga and the yotsubato reading pack for 4chan patriotism.
>>
Is anybody still around that is not the generalfag anon or did everybody bailed an hour or so ago from this ludacris?

I want to ask you guys, what is the clinical term of what this anon is suffering from? What does it called in English at least?

He seems like he can function like a normal human being; being able to articulate himself and expresses his opinions, a rather smart human being I'd say.

Yet he has this unwavering persistence to consistently doing things that he thinks can destroy djt.

The degree of consistency of which he is doing it is alarming to me, if not sounds real crazy.

How do you guys call a person like this in English?
He's not "technically" mentally crazy right? As an ESL that lives in a non-welfare country, I've seen crazy people on the streets in a regular basis. This guy doesn't talk like a crazy person, but sure does act like one.

Again the degree of consistency is chilling to me.

It's been 18 days since I upped new cards from 20 to 40, and my daily reps have gone from an average of 300 a day to 700. I actually just hit the last new kanji in the deck (2887, with 50-some suspended) so from now on every word I encounter will have kanji I already know. I hope this makes the review count stop increasing, if I start getting hundreds more reviews than I already have I'm going to cry.

Is this proper? Like, do people really say "sometime in the next week", "sometime in the next month" etc. as we would in English?

I'm asking because google is mainly bringing up Japanese to English sites when I search for this. So it makes me feel it might not be a natural thing to say.
>>
>>139024878
Last question (maybe). What is the proper term for his in-denial attitude over evidence (or overwhelming evidence).

I read his first /qa/ thread and he talked repeatedly about nobody adressing his points in the Opening Post. Which most people did, but just laced with insults too.

So I parsed his opening post and answered his points one by one by one.

As we all know, he made a second thread and persistently said that "nobody" addressed his points about generals in his opening post.

"I" specifically answered it sentence by sentence. Not to mention in this thread alone some people were answering his copy pasted questions.

The second thing that stand out to me about him, first being his consistency, is his persistent denial in the face of answers or opposite opinions, direct answers even.

How can somebody be this in denial / blind, and how do English language (psychology) call that specific symptom?

So, DJT, about consonants...

Are G and J as unstable as R?

I mean, when pronouncing R, japanese will range from "Lemon" to "Remon", depending on their speech style.

I would like to know if that's the case with some weakened-ass Gs and Js I've encountered around, and what are the rules, if any.

>Examples:
会議 かいぎ / kaigi
非常に ひじょうに / hijouni
http://vocaroo.com/i/s1enpJcV53Zz

In this audio I've pronounced the first two with a "muddy" accent and the last two with the default sound we learn.

The "kaigi" one will almost becomes "kaiñi", and the "hijouni" makes a "zh" sound, instead of the expected "dj".

How are these decisions made?
I understand that if you speak in a laidback way the sound tends to come out like that, but I'm not sure if that's entirely it.

So at that time, I cant remember the reason, but I learnt you can ask the store manager to provide a birthday cake.

It might have been a store (mcdonalds) ajoined to a supermarket, but I my birthday was during the summer break so i thought I'd try it once.

It was alright i guess flavorwise? It was about twice the size of the local baker's cake however.

A white faced ronald mcdonald came and did magic and balloons, paper hats etc, now that i think about it he did quite a bit.

DON'T GIVE UP! DON'T GIVE IN! KEEP READING! BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!

Learning Japanese is a very long journey and you need to fuel your mind with the right reasons and the right fuel to sustain that journey! Everyone has a lot of energy at the start and they're very focused on their reasons for learning Japanese, but after you've been going for months then the wear and tear of the grind starts to hit you, you get caught away in the daily challenges, the ups and downs, and you focus on the speed bumps of your daily studies and you lose sight of your reasons! You have to stay focused on the reasons for why you're learning Japanese!

There was once a kid who couldn't speak even though everyone else in his class was speaking. When he was 7 then everyone was reading and talking, but he couldn't read. The teacher brought his parents in and told them that he had to go because he was slowing down the rest of the class. They didn't know what to do with him, so they put him to work and he got fired from every single job that he tried. All that he knows up until 21 years old is failure. He's never tasted success. Then one day he found his reason, he found out what he wanted, and he gave it everything he had! Day in and day out! He tried something over 1,000 times before he was finally successful!

Most people never try something more than 10 times before they throw in the towel, but he just kept trying because this was something that he cared about! As he kept pushing forward then it was all of these failures that kept bringing him closer to success! AND THEN FINALLY THE LIGHT BULB LIT! It was Thomas Edison!

He had been a failure his entire life, but every time that he hit rock bottom then he just got back up and took another step forward! We all fall down in the journey of learning Japanese, but it's our perseverance that determines if we will be successful!

REMEMBER WHAT YOU WANT IN JAPANESE AND GO AFTER IT LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!

Started with kana ten days ago. I think I'm done with realkana, if I ever fail one kana it's because I slip a finger with the keyboard. It was nice to be able to get most of the TGS, like names from characters and such.

And now, I feel like I'm lost. not because I can't see a way to go forward, but there are too many open roads.

After dealing with kana Genki I feels like it jumps straight intto a vocabulary pool (and without explaining the thing with ha/wa beforehand). I'd rather choose something that teaches me first how to build clauses, the rules of its smaller elements... a syntactic approach.

Tae Kim seems to be what I'm looking for, but then, his Basic grammar looks like is a bunch of random-placed rules to me. There is still a knowledge gap I feel the urge to fill: How Japanese words start to work.

A lot of Why...? questions pop in my head while I try to start with grammar or Kanji. "Why is this written with katakana? It doesn't look like a loan word...", "Why should I use the chinese reading of this kanji? Where are the rules about which reading I need to use or learn better?" , "Is there a kanji for every japanese word, like, is there a kanji for itadakimasu (I know, I know, I need to learn how to type in kana asap)?"

Somebody help please? What do you do once you get over with hiragana and katakana?

Chinese speaker here. I have a pretty good level of fluency in Mandarin and can read a lot of characters (kanji), so I decided it's time to put that aside for a while and pick up Japanese. After all, I spend multiple hours a day listening to cute cartoon girls speaking it and have even picked some up organically over the years, so it would be stupid not to explore it.

Anyway, starting next week I'm going to be reading and regularly posting/posting in these threads. Would you guys consider it inappropriate if I picked up a tripcode for DJT only? I'm a firm believer in the idea that you pick up language best when your conversations with others are realistic and direct, so it would be kind of weird if I was posting in Japanese but didn't have an identifiable name on my posts.

Just wondering, how does one restart anki after stopping for two years? I got bored with it and just started reading but time has gotten tight this semester and I like to read only when I have large chunks of time to do it. As a result, I know a lot more vocab now than when I stopped anki. How do I restart core 10k without having to spend forever going through really easy stuff? I know I could keep upping the new card limit until I get to new words but that just sounds really tedious.

I need your opinion DJT.
I started Anki two weeks ago with the default template:
Front
>Definition
>Example sentence with kanji [furigana]

Back
>The answer in Kanji [furigana]
>Definition
>Example sentence
>Audio

Vocab wise it's working nice so far. Kanji however, is a bit cloudy since it's not the main focus of the card. But then I saw this >>114227447 and now I'm deciding to try this template. There's a big difference because with this, there are no example sentences and definitions on the front card as a crutch. Instead, it'll make me produce the word it's looking for, plus the definition.

My question is this:
At two weeks in (40 new words/day, 200 max review), if you were in my position, would you just start over so you can go through some of the cards you missed prior to switching? Or would you just continue with the reviews, since those cards you missed will eventually show up again?

So, I think I might be retarded or something, but I'm very confused about Kanji. I meant to make some progress through Genki last night, but I just ended up reading through explanations of how they work for several hours.

From what I understand, they serve to either:
- represent a collection of sounds, taken from the original Chinese pronunciation and unrelated to their original meaning (but sometimes containing an ideographic indicator of whatever the meaning is) - this is used when kanji are in compound words

- represent a concept, against taken from Chinese, but read as the Japanese word for whatever that meaning is - this is used when kanji are isolated

Can someone help clear this up?

I don't consider him to be an exception, he can stop using an name and still be as helpful. There is no good reason for him to engage in being a namefag.
Why would he use a name if not for gathering attention to how helpful he is?

Need your advice, /djt/

I've finished ~4k words from Core, 1.1k kanji from KD and have a decent grasp on grammar from Tae Kim.

Lately, I've been slugging through Amagami on my Vita, which is rather boring, but reasonably easy even at my level, and doesn't require to look up too many things, as virtually all the dialog falls into 'high-schoolers talking about daily life' category, nothing impressive grammar or vocab-wise.

The thing is, on sale a few days agj I've picked up a Vita copy of a White Album 2 bundle, which includes both parts of the VN, and really want to play this masterpiece. Would WA2 be too much for me as of now, considering I don't use a text-hooker 'cause vitard, and should I consider playing it safe and sticking with Amagami until I finish Core and KD, to avoid being overwhelmed and ruining myself an experience?
