Is there any way to reorder new cards by word frequency?

I read a lot, so I have a whole bunch of accumulated new cards in my mining deck, and way too often I get bursts of rather specific vocab instead of more useful stuff.
>>
>>139687080
No, but if you're just starting out, you won't understand any of it, romaji or not. Wait till you're a decent way through Tae Kim (at least through "Essential Grammar").
>>
>>139687117
I'll learn them after doing some grammar for at least a few months (basic grammar), for now I'm just relying on various romanization systems.

Pretty cool, is this meant for children or something? Kids at this level really shouldn't have to care about this shit but it's still nice to have.
>>
>>139687166
You should learn them before doing grammar, or at least while doing grammar. Kana really doesn't take very long.

What grammar guide are you using that is letting you get away with knowing no kana anyway? It's probably not a very good one.
>>
>>139687225
>Kids at this level really shouldn't have to care about this shit but it's still nice to have.
It's Japan, anon.

>>139686461

Yeah, it's not particularly hard when you have the system down. The trick is to not try too hard to make the visualization something that would make logical sense in real life, and to not assign abstract concepts to any radicals etc. because they're harder to visualize than physical things. The latter is one reason why the KD mnemonics are often pretty weak.

I do non-kanji stuff the same way by having a visualization for each kana or frequent kana combination, after you have it all set up it makes remembering words incredibly easy to the degree that 90% of the time you can remember a word correctly the day after you first encounter it.
>>
>>139687225
It's for kids and Japanese learners. There's an about page if you want to read it: http://www3.nhk.or.jp/news/easy/about.html

If you click on the icons in pic related, there are descriptions of various natural disasters, how to prepare for them, and what to do when they happen.
>>
>>139687211
Really? I would understand if you were talking about Spanish or German, but it's really hard to believe it with Japanese.
>>139687236
But that's just too much work, isn't it? I'm doing the Jenki series of textbooks for now, it has romanization and the Japanese systems too. I'll switch to them after I can read something more meaningful in the romanization systems.

The purpose of a grammar guide is to get to you to point where you can start reading things in Japanese. You're going to get to the end of the grammar guide and realise you still can't read anything in Japanese because you can't read the writing system. Online dictionaries like jisho.org will be of no use to you either since they do not have romaji.

>>139687364
>I'll switch to them after I can read something more meaningful in the romanization systems.
You're doing yourself a disservice, mate. The sooner you learn kana the better.
>>
>>139687441
But the meaning is still in English though. And I though grammar and kanas had nothing in common, besides being Japanese of course.

So I started learning this characters (kanji), but I don't understand which pronunciation to learn, the Chinese (onyomi) or the Japanese (kunyomi)? I'm thinking Japanese since I'm learning Japanese, is this correct?

does plane copy-paste from old phone memory card to new one work?

Depends what threshold you consider "starting". If starting to learn kana counts as starting, then I imagine almost everyone fails because people are lazy and dumb and get discouraged when they realize the mountain ahead of them.

I'd still say the majority of people fail if you consider starting Tae Kim / Core to be starting. The startup pastebin gets over 300 views a week yet DJT's IP count never really goes above 100 (at least not around this time, it does during summer and new years). If you consider finishing Tae Kim or a similar guide as starting, then maybe closer to half (or less, who knows).

I think once you get to the point where the majority of your "studying" is just reading things you're interested in, it's kind of hard to feel any reason to "give up" unless you're not interested in anything related to Japanese anymore. At that point, when you're still able to find plenty of compelling content, the closest you can do to "giving up" is dropping Anki when it's still beneficial to you, and even then you're still making decent progress.

Can someone tell me what the best way to use Anki is?

So I already read from the guide to remove the review limit. What else? When using it I either click on AGAIN or GOOD but never HARD or EASY. Am I doing it wrong?
>>
>>139693276

The image in >>139693344 pretty much encapsulates it. There isn't really a "correct" answer. People who went the vocab only route will tell you that's better and people who went the "kanji study and then vocab alongside/after" route will tell you that their method is better.

People who did kanji study will tell you that vocab will just blur together and you'll have a harder time with vocab the further in your get as you pile on more and more similar looking kanji and weird readings. Whether that's true or not, I don't know.

I usually don't see valid arguments from vocab people against kanji methods aside from I guess "if you're not having problems distinguishing similar kanji then there's not much reason to do kanji study", which is true. Most of the time it's silly stuff like them not understanding how mnemonics work or saying that people who do RTK/KD can't read or whatever.

Just do what works best for you. Everyone's going to think their method is best because it's what worked for them and they think the same will apply to everyone else.
>>
>>139693558
>Whether that's true or not, I don't know.
Vocab guy here, I think it is. I can read things, even LOGH and Dies Irae, without much sweat but when it comes to individually identifying Kanji I suck like absolute balls. I learned "料簡" recently and thought "Huh, is 簡 a new kanji? Maybe nonjouyou?" but upon looking it up it's in fucking 簡単 of all things. Despite knowing many words with it, out of context I couldn't recognize it.

So, individual kanji study is something I thing is very valuable to distinguishing between kanji out of context, but in the context of reading/understanding "real" text it's not as important.
>>
>>139693558
>I usually don't see valid arguments from vocab people against kanji methods aside from I guess "if you're not having problems distinguishing similar kanji then there's not much reason to do kanji study", which is true.
What about the one where people are retarded and frequently end up studying kanji in extremely inefficient ways?
>>
>>139693886
Vocab people can do the same thing, it's just a bit harder to manage to do. Even then, doing an established working method in an extremely inefficient way would make it their fault, not the fault of the method / the concept of studying kanji individually. Unless by "inefficient" you mean the epic "memorizing a bunch of stupid useless stories/keywords" meme, in which case that goes back to not understanding how mnemonics work.
>>
>>139693693
The thing is, when do you ever need to distinguish individual Kanji? If you can read the words surely it doesn't matter.

I guess it would help for writing, but the vast majority of us will only ever type anyway.
>>
>>139693558

I'm not really against the kanji methods but couldn't you say one of the benefits of learning through vocabulary is that you can start reading earlier?

It's mostly a choice of "spend a few months (or a few weeks if you're a really dedicated NEET) doing a kanji study method and then jumping into reading/vocab/grammar", or "jump straight into reading/vocab/grammar but have a harder time with it and not be able to go as fast with vocab without dropping retention".

Along with the other things of course, but still.

>>139694122
No fucking shit! I was listening to Japanese music for so long with no idea what it meant. It was a fucking shame, ESPECIALLY because of the fact that I listen to hipster singer-songwriters. It's so goddamn orgasmic to be able to understand lyrics and look up what the artist is doing via twitter or their blogs or whatever instead of scrambling around for scraps of translations some mexican wrote while sniffing crack

Of course, this only applies if you're listening to music that's actually good. If you're unironically listening to anison trash, understanding the lyrics will lead you to becoming disillusioned with it, which is a good thing in the end I guess

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Alrc98fQlc

I still listen to that shit tho (汗)

Currently it's slightly frustrating cause my listening comprehension is shit. Although, it can be hard to understand lyrics sometimes when songs are in English too.

>>139694496
Because no one can be arsed.
>>
>>139694493
That's a pretty extremely atypical case though, RTK shouldn't take you any more than a few months. That's like saying you shouldn't use VNs as reading practice because that one guy has been reading Flyable Heart for over a year and hasn't finished the common route or that you shouldn't use manga as reading practice because that one guy has been studying for 7 years and can barely understand Yotsuba. There's no reason to discard a method because it's possible to go too slowly with. Might as well not bother learning Japanese in general if that's the mindset you're going to adapt.

>>
>>139694635
You're not wrong that it's atypical, but there's still room to argue that one more level of studying before reading is just one more level where people can fuck up and waste tons of time, even if you say that other levels have the same problem. The only place where this would particularly not be a potential problem for certain people with studying kanji in isolation is if they skipped formal "vocab as such" study altogether and went straight to reading from kanji, like Kaufman did. However, I'm not saying that there's any argument against people who are already studying kanji in a sensible way; only that there should be a warning if someone gives kanji study as advice.

Is it really necessary to know grammar? You can reasonably accurately guess meanings of sentences if you know the words, or am I mistaken somehow?

So if I know Hira and Katakana. But no vocabulary or grammar or Kanji.

How should my daily study plan look like? Study grammar, vocabulary and kanji at the same time with the same amount of time dedicated to each? Kanji using RTK and Anki, vocab with Anki and grammar with Tae Kim?

>>139694838
Yes. Or it wouldn't be in the guide. Tae Kim doesn't take that much effort just read it.

>>
>>139694771
Right, but it's a silly argument that isn't exclusive to kanji study at all. It applies to all of Japanese; be consistent and study every day if you want solid progress. If you set a minimum amount of like 20-25 kanji to go through every day with RTK, then it won't take longer than a few months (or less depending on how dedicated you are).
>>
>>139694919
>by the definitions.
Maybe you should learn English first. And it's not hard, you just have to keep at it. If you don't want to put in any effort, don't bother learning at all.
>>
>>139694983
I know English already from the time I was a little kodomo. I want to put in effort, but I want to cut corners wherever I can. I'm not even considering learning the Chinese characters honestly, that just seems close to impossible. I don't want to spend 2-3 years just doing that.
>>
>>139694919
>Sorry if I said something stupid, I was just wondering...

If you're actually serious then you're a fucking moron. Grammar is what actually structures languages, without it we'd do nothing but point and shout the name of objects, that's the limit of your communication without grammar.

Seriously how the fuck did you expect to read the different words tenses and conjugations without knowing any of them? It would look like this to you. "He look** ** bird" That is how sentances would look to you if you were stupid enough to ignore grammar like a fucking dolt.

You're the worst case of できない I have ever seen. Piss off.
>>
>>139695064
Don't bother, you''re too dumb.
>>
>>139694942
>Right, but it's a silly argument that isn't exclusive to kanji study at all.
I literally just said that it applies to every level. People can waste time anywhere. The difference is that doing kanji before vocab is an extra step and you need to take even more caution than normal when you have extra steps. I said that my argument does not qualify when there is kanji study and not vocab study. Please hear what I actually say and not some vague mimetic approximation.
>It applies to all of Japanese; be consistent and study every day if you want solid progress.
Okay, you clearly don't understand the example cases where people waste all their time on one level then. It's not because they don't do enough, it's because they think they're not done yet.
>>
>>139695113
But "He look** **bird" makes sense, in the sense that I can understand it perfectly without even knowing any grammar. Maybe it's different with Japanese, but how exactly?
>>139695116
Why so offensive?
>>
I ctrl+fd 'remember the kanji' in the guide but nothing. Sorry for being retarded but please redirect me to it. I'm already doing core vocab anki but I guess I could be learning kanji as well.
>>
>>139695214
>But "He look** **bird" makes sense

Because it's an incredibly simple sentance. I'll stop shouting at you since >>139695064 proved to me beyond a shadow of a doubt that you're baiting.

At least people arn't actually that fucking stupid, not here for now at least.

>>139695260
Look in the resources section It's a seperate doc now.
>>
>>139695157
I'm not really sure what you're trying to get at that isn't already obvious. I understand what you're saying, but I think you're being silly. Most people who recommend doing kanji study supplement that recommendation with the warning that they shouldn't spend any longer than a few months on it anyways, so it's a non-issue.
>>
>>139695298
You can just show a simple sentance in Japanese that illustrates the point. It shouldn't be a problem for you if you know a little bit of Japanese.
>>
>>139694833
>use a texhooker you dolt
Most of the stuff I read can't be texthooked. Actually, that is probably why I think individual kanji study is more valuable than most people around here do.

Text hooker or an app that grabs text from images. I forget what it's called.

No it fucking isn't. Learning Kana is nothing compared to the amounts of vocab and grammar you will be learning later on.

"It shouldn't take longer than X or you're doing it wrong" isn't a warning, it's an observation. But people feel like they're stupid and need extra time to "master" the material. They know they've already "done RTK". People who feel like they're never done will never progress past doing something that they view as a prerequisite for the next step, which is absolutely the case you're presenting to them if you say "Studying kanji in isolation can help you learn vocabulary easier". And if you load on two sentences of detailed explanation, they won't read it correctly and will approximate what you're saying as that same binary thing. People are stupid.

The problem here isn't the fact that RTK should only take a certain amount of time, the problem is that they do nothing but RTK and nothing but RTK for a long time. People who /actually/ can't make themselves do N kanji a day are dekinais. The problem is people who feel the need to master one material before moving onto the next. People like that *will not respond to advice* to give up what they started and go to the next stage; They'll "start over japanese from scratch" instead, which is code for "giving up but pretending to not give up".

You might not be someone who has trouble getting stuck on one piece of material, but these people DO exist, and they WILL misunderstand you when you explain the caveats to them so long as you beat around the bush or say it in ten words or less.

"One should not study kanji in isolation before working on vocab." I know that most people who can do it, but "most" isn't good enough for general advice. "If one wants to study kanji in isolation they should do it alongside memorizing words instead of beforehand".

Yes, this is actually a big difference, and no, it is *not* "obvious".

>>
>>139696440
>a gigantic feet
>>
>>139694748
As a vocab guy that really isn't much of a problem. New words are pretty rare, and even then half the time you can guess the pronunciation just from context or recognizing the phonetic components of the kanji
>>
>>139696440
>Does this imply you're actually reading at a decent pace?
Yeah. Did you see that LOGH word frequency dump? The vast majority of words used are common words like you'd expect. Same for Dies Irae (though the words it uses are "common" for chuuni games of which I have read a couple). It's all Japanese in the end.

I will admit that the chants in Dies Irae are far above my skill level but they are not very at allfrequent in comparison to most of the normal text so it's not something I sweat about too much.

How good are you guys at understanding the meaning of words from the kanji they use? It's always seemed like a weak spot for me

>>
>>139698366
Because the whole point of Anki is to drill words into you over time. So after a while cards will have certain intervals, and if you reset then you fuck that up.

Also just grinding throug the reps like I described would be faster than going through the deck like it was new again.

>>139698388
>My point was that two words which can easily be confused has the same reading.

また、イラストの上に文字が被っている部分には白フチが被せられていますので、下になったイラスト自体も死んでいるという、
本文、イラストの双方を殺す最悪のデザインです。
イラストを避けるようにしたほうが良かったのではないでしょうか。
本文書体が無駄に大きいのも気になります。ここまでイラストにかぶるなら、
書体サイズを少し小さくするなどしたほうが良かったのではないでしょうか。

というわけで、ページを開いて読めませんでしたので文章についてはレビューできません。

We believe that we invent symbols. The truth is that they invent us; we are their creatures, shaped by their hard, defining edges. When language learners take their lesson they are given a meme, a macro image stamped with the profile of Dekinai. Their acceptance of that mockery is their acceptance of the despair and burdens of language learners—they are fearful from that moment, though they may know nothing of the language itself. I did not know that then, but it is a profound mistake to believe that we must know of such things to be influenced by them, and in fact to believe so is to believe in the most debased and superstitious kind of magic. The would-be sorcerer alone has faith in the efficacy of pure knowledge; rational people know that things act of themselves or not at all.

A native answering questions and only using said trip for answering questions is the only case in the thread where trips are legitimately warranted. That's proper usage of a trip. It erases any doubt whenever they answer a question and you know the answer you're getting is a reliable one. There's nothing wrong with using it in that case.

An anki habit IS a whole lot of good if you add a minimum of 10 new words a day. I'm guessing you did pittance reviews and no new cards, which isn't really a healthy anki habit. Kind of like someone going to the gym only once a month and saying "let this be a lesson to those who think going to the gym will do them a lot of good" after he's still unhealthy.

break it down into the smallest parts and tell me how you understand each part as they relate to each other

same thing for the other sentence. dictionary look up the onomatapoeic words youre identifying, break the sentence down into the smallest parts you are able, explain how you understand them as they relate to each other and post back

There's no set number because it varies from kanji to kanji. Memorize the ones that are used a lot, treat the ones used only in 1-2 specific words or only in obscure words as exceptions and learn them separately. Poking around at jisho should make it pretty clear which are which.

ちがった different, not in it's intended state

Am I supposed to feel discouraged about trying to learn both kanji and vocab at the same time using the recommended kanji decks?

Should I just keep going through kanji only and do vocab after I get a couple thousand kanji in my memory?

Just learn core vocab, you don't need every single kanji and you'll learn the important ones by doing core anyways.

no real major problems until you get to と ちがった

its hard for me to convey in english but と is giving you association (as if to say 'like' or 'with' but dont think of と as one of those words 1:1) with パラパラ and then ちがった is telling you something is different from the thing と is connected to ala パラパラ

so the gohan was actually too べたべた and not ぱらぱら enough (the opposite)

if youve made and eaten rice yourself often it makes more sense probably than to someone who doesnt due to whatever gaijin shit. being able to get a grip on words because of the situation being familiar is probably a thing that can help you understand

な is fine also

Is this Shin Sekai Yori?
Because I'm like 8 episodes in and that's the most obvious thing ever. I don't know the details but when they mentioned the 4 different "colonies" of humans during the dark ages I assumed the rats were from one of them

I suppose I should leave before I get real spoilers though

What the fuck, the queerats don't look or act anything like humans in the first half of the show, why would you think that?

>>139715967
mask faggot gets rekto'd and the ogre is the red headed sluts baby

Sure they do, the leader of one of them even talks perfectly normally. It probably helps that I've seen Suisei no Gargantia.

Amen.

Dude if you wanna spoil someone you gotta make the first few words count. You can't start with something obvious. Dunno what you're aiming for anyway desu I don't really care much about spoilers for anime since they are so short and the plot progresses so quickly it's not you're running a 80+ hour VN by saying that Sora dies.

>>139716671
What`s obvious for some is not obvious for others.

i've been using the kanji damage plus deck up until now and i'm 600 cards in, now that i found out about the other good kanji decks im thinking about swapping but i'd lose a month of work.

s-should i do it? the kanjidamage deck is ok but it blatantly uses incorrect meanings sometimes and fucks me over, and it doesn't always show onyomi + kunyomi
>>
>>139717169
>but i'd lose a month of work.
>s-should i do it?
No.
>>
>>139717169
It's not like you forget the kanji themselves. Just switch if you want.
>>
>>139693558
Problem with Kanji though is you still don't know any words. Unless what you play is fully voice acted so you can read along, you won't know what it is. Yes, some meanings are obvious, but others are not.

Can kanji fags tell me the meanings of these without looking them up?
落人
振る舞う
見舞い
見舞われる
血迷う
明け暮れる
塞ぎ込む

>can you tell me the meaning of words you don`t know yet?
No but kanjifags can read them regardless.

So can vocabularyfags.

餌食

Luckily I broke my habit of always reading spoilered text after Flyable Heart got spoiled for me.

What should I do if I can recognize a kanji through the shape/radicals, but can't memorize its meaning and reading?, this shit is driving me crazy.
>>
>>139717716
Your point? A few words don`t make a rule.

>>139717761
Try mnemonics or hand writing the kanji, I don`t know man.
>>
>>139717628
People who focus on vocabulary learn readings as well as anyone else. You just learn the readings as they come up in vocabulary. Provided you've learned vocab previously that used that kanji, there's no reason you can't read the word without knowing what it means. There's no true advantage to learning kanji by themselves unless you have trouble differentiating them when you try to learn vocabulary.

A few? I pulled this out of my deck in about a minute. That's not an exhaustive list you know.

No, "my hips are moving on their own"

I'm sure it's used all the time but I haven't been reading much Japanese porn until recently

>>139718031
Like if I say a word like しょうり can you tell me what the Kanji are without relying on external resources.
