>*Pun based on the yojijukugo “猪突猛進” (“Chototsu Moushin” – to rush recklessly into something with no consideration, i.e. like a wild boar). The kanji by themselves are something like boar + thrust + fierce (or blindness in another version of the yojijukugo) + advance, but the start and end pair are also two words in their own right, “recklessness” and “rushing headlong” or thereabouts. Here the third kanji is replaced with “農” (“agriculture”), so take it as something like “Recklessly gardening, like a boar”.
K then.

because google translate is garbage and can't interpret the correct phrases to use 住む in
it would be odd to use は with that verb in most contexts, so google takes the safe route and picks が
the reason why it's more natural to use が is because 住む is a verb that naturally raises questions (where is he living?) so without those answers, it fits better with が for the nuances that you probably heard about from tae kim

here's where you would use が and where you would use は
赤の広場にはレーニンが住んでいる
レーニンは赤の広場に住んでいる
as you can see が is used when lenin is not the topic of the larger statement
like i mentioned, without the 赤の広場, and without other outside context (like something that could be contrasted against with は), が is the particle that looks better to google

it did manage to interpret your third sentence pretty well though
you can figure the reason it uses は is because it reads better as a sentence that starts with a clear topic
hell it even added the 続く for emphasis

according to my research you will learn japanese at about 1020 per second (mach 4) watching ten episodes a day of anime (subbed)
raw anime brings it up by k*n/c where n is your current knowledge of japanese, c is the average complexity of the language used in each episode, and k is the constant of proportionality

Okay so this is my situation, some of you may remember me anyway.

I had some examinations taken for a scholarship to do my undergrad in Japan, out of the 40 people that applied I was the only one who passed. So 95% sure I'm going to Japan, just need to wait for an answer from Japan in november-december. The thing is I did study a lot of vocab and can speak with my japanese friends comfortably (Except I have to search like 40% of vocab they use on the dictionary from time to time), and I want to return to my studies, but now focus on the writing part of kanji too.

The trip is in april 2017, and I get to study japanese in a language school over there for 1 year (alongside math phys and chem) and need to be able to reach N2-N1 level in that time period, while being able to handwrite kanji. The question is, how can I get a headstart? I am only working 8 hours per day now that I'm no longer studying for the test, so I have a lot of time.

I'm 1200 words into core2k-6k (old one, started last year) and I have the RTK book but I don't like it so much (got it as a gift).

Any advice? If this is not an appropiate question please delete it, thanks.
>>
If I'm never going to write kanji by hand, am I doing unnecessary work doing production (keyword + reading -> kanji) on KanjiDamage? I don't write the kanji down, I just do it in my head, thinking of what radicals make it up and where they are.
Or does doing production have a positive effect on recognition?

Third paragraph is probably interesting to you. If you're already at a stage where you can kind of converse, the best way to learn will be to just read (and listen) a lot. Set yourself a goal, like finish 20~ VNs by then of which a couple should include harder ones like Dies Irae and Muramasa. If you can manage that then N1 shouldn't be a problem.
>>
>>143538639
I just learnt the radicals through rote and by writing them heaps. It's pretty effective
>>
>>143538830
I see, thanks. So I should mine vocab from VN's and practice rote writing? (or maybe give another shot at RTK)

Also, is there a guide anywhere to set up VN's?

Noobie here.

Are all of these just different readings, or are they something I'm too new for and shouldn't worry about?
>>
>>143551142
You shouldn't just memorize random readings of kanji, learn them in the context of actual words.
>>
>>143551142
Don't worry about readings until you encounter words that use those readings
>>
>>143551142
The ones on the last row are name readings and not something you should prioritize.
>>
>>143551822
You need to know 5-10 name readings per kanji for all of jouyou and jinmeiyou in order to be fluent in Japanese
>>
>>143551884
yeah me too thanks
>>
Is the anon that downloaded all those audiobooks around? If so, are they too big to upload? They'd be nice to have in the CoR
>>
>>143551884
There's a point of diminishing returns long before you start memorizing name readings for completeness.
Even a Kanji sage who could chicken-scratch circles around the finest scribes of the Qing and Edo courts, would run into trouble figuring out names, because a given spelling for a name maps to several different pronunciations which are all valid names.
Some names have literally dozens of known pronunciations, and you're not going to impress anyone or move any conversation along by being able to list the different possibilities.
The key to fluency with names is remembering them when they are revealed to you, and having enough experience with names to make reasonable deductions about an unknown name, or flat-out recognize it if it's well-known in its context.

Could you recommend me any beginner friendly LN? I mean something like Hanahira in LN version. It would be best if it had a good translation (to consult only when I'm completely stumped by something).

And please no useless answers like "read what you want". I have shit taste so almost anything will be interesting to me, but I want to start with something easier.

I've seen that most people start reading once they finish TK. How far into Anki were you guys when you started reading?
>>
>>143556208
You can start reading as soon as you want, and especially long before finishing Tae Kim
Just the essential section is enough to read Hanahira for example, and even the whole guide isn't enough to know all the grammar in regular reading. It's not some "beyond this grammar is just the obscure stuff" sorta deal
I started reading Hanahira 200 or 300 words into core and honestly didn't have to look up a huge amount of words, not more than I look up for harder VNs nowadays anyway
>>
>>143556394

So is a lot of it just getting used to the grammar and going slowly through it? I can deal with that I think.
>>
>>143551142

No, there are only 2 readings you need to learn for this kanji: http://ichi.moe/cl/kanji/?q=五

The ones at the bottom of your card are probably readings for personal names, which are pretty much useless.

Compelling content is definitely most important, but a little bit of Anki compliments it so fucking well, especially if you mine your vocabulary from compelling content. I'll only quit Anki when my comprehension becomes so good that I struggle to find new words I want to add.

>>
>>143565143

I actually begun kanji first vocab after because not knowing the kanji was holding me back.

For example I learned 海 and 岸 and knew that together it meant seashore, but it felt fucking retarded knowing the meaning but not the way it was read in Japanese so I was stuck reading half Japanese half English in my head, which is fucking stupid.

I should probably just start over my kanji shit after all and try to make somewhat of an effort this time.
>>
>>143565256
No, learning on and kun readings is a total waste of time, just learn how to read the vocab. Learning the readings in context with your vocab is better than learning 15 readings per kanji and 1543603 different rules and exceptions. Just because the kanji give you an idea of what the words should mean doesn't mean that you shouldn't have to put effort into remembering how to say it, it sounds like your problem is not studying the readings of your vocab hard enough because you can guess the meanings from Kanji.

well, this gives me a little bit of hope, I guess since I completely skipped them and I'm about 1100 kanji into my deck

>>143564990
You can learn readings via vocab, i would argue it's actually better that way considering how many different readings some kanji have. I started with vocab right away but had very shit retention because i was having too much trouble remembering the kanji itself, let alone the readings. Then i did RTK in about 3 months (not learning the readings) and restarted with vocab after that, my retention skyrocketed and remembering the reading doesn't seem to be much of a problem.

You know what kun readings are, right?

It's literally wrong to learn them isolated from their specific individual meaning like you do with kanji decks.

Actually, the original text was flawed and probably made by an ESL and I was making fun of it.
The comma before the "and" means the fucking italian part is a separate clause from the learning english part and hence the meaning can't carry over the way it was presumably intended to.

Wrong. Full oxford comma usage is actually correct here. The only problem with what he wrote was the confusing usage of "fucking" as an adverb in a list that previously tied gerunds to actions.

It actually isn't correct here. The reason it doesn't work is that he wrote "learning" twice there, so the third item, having to conform to the rest of the list, only really works well as another gerund phrase. So "fucking" is being used as a verb there, however unintentionally. With "fucking" as an adjective, the sentence doesn't really make sense anymore, because he separated "learning guitar" and "learning english" so the last item in the list can't be "italian," since that's not an action anymore but a noun.

Examples of ways not to fuck up:

This is literally a made-up rule that you're pulling out of your ass. Yes, it's confusing, but there's not anything wrong with it at all.

>So "fucking" is being used as a verb there, however unintentionally.
Yes, it can be confused as a verb there, but it does not have to be a verb. Are you saying that the following sentence is grammatically wrong? No. Not just in bad form. *Wrong.*

>I'm learning japanese, learning grammar, and fucking sick in the head.

>With "fucking" as an adjective
It's an adverb, not an adjective.

>he separated "learning guitar" and "learning english" so the last item in the list can't be "italian,"
Yes it can.

>since that's not an action anymore but a noun.
This might surprise you but "learning guitar" and "learning english" are also nouns. They're called participle noun phrases.

Fair enough.
Look at the example he gave:
>I'm learning japanese, learning grammar, and fucking sick in the head.
which is correct, vs the original:
>I'm learning japanese, learning grammar, and fucking italian.
which is wrong. The difference is the context of the "learning" is supposed to carry over to the Italian, whereas in his example the last clause is a separate phrase following from the "I'm" without trying to receive meaning from the other clauses. Because of the Oxford comma the clauses are entirely separate entities and cannot receive contextual information from each other the way it was intended.
"I'm fucking sick in the head" is correct
"I'm fucking italian" is not

You see now, ESL-kun?

"I'm fucking italian" is legitimately correct though. It might not be what he wanted to say (according to your assumptions), but it's correct.

>>143569168
It's only correct if there's a person called Italian, which it seems reasonable to assume there isn't. Otherwise it should be, as I said originally, "I'm fucking an Italian"
>>
>>143569087
I've only been skimming most of this argument, but it looks like I was right -- it's an issue of parallel structure, combined with complications with an expletive infix.

In your first example, the verb "am" carries over into all three objects; it can be broken down into
>I am learning Japanese
>I am learning grammar
>I am fucking sick in the head

The second example would do the same, but the way it's punctuated does seem to imply there's an article missing before "Italian." With the comma, what would normally be an infix becomes, or can very easily seem to become, its own verb.

I don't have a dog in this fight, this is just what I gather, based on my two years of Linguistics I took in college.

>>143558957

>>143569258
No. "I'm fucking italian" is "I'm italian". The "is" is connecting to the adjective, "italian", and calling the nip an italian person.

What anon 1 is arguing is that, even though
>I'm Xing Y, Xing Z, and fucking W
was used in a place where the writer intended Xing to apply to all three nested object nouns (Y, Z, and W), W is instead interpreted as <specific thing>, and that <specific thing> was written in an incorrect way.

Anon 2 is arguing that W must instead be interpreted as <other specific thing>, which was written in a correct way.

Neither <specific thing> nor <other specific thing> are necessarily what the original sentence meant to say, i.e. applying Xing to both Y, Z and W.

The real issue at hand is that the semantics for inconsistent predicate splitting are underdefined in english.

Good textbooks:

(beginner level grammar guides)
Japanese: The Spoken Language
Genki 1 and Genki 2 (in sequence)

(intermediate level grammar guide)
Tobira

(undergraduate grammar reference)
Japanese: A Complete Grammar

(beginner-intermediate grammar dictionary)
A Dictionary of Japanese Grammar (trilogy)

All of these except Japanese: The Spoken Language are in the CoR.

Hey DJT. I have a friend who wants to start learning nip but only has ~1 hr a day to dedicate to it. In contrast I have several hours each day I spend studying. What are your opinions on study methods? Do you think optimal studying patterns differ depending on the amount of time one has to dedicate, or should everyone pretty much do the same thing, just more or less of it depending on how much time they have to give?
>>
>>143569541
>The real issue at hand is that the semantics for inconsistent predicate splitting are underdefined in english.
Where the fuck are you getting this from? They're perfectly well defined, in fact he just explained how they're defined in his post.
>>
>>143569636
I said "underdefined", not "undefined". "Underdefined" in linguistics means that something is interpreted differently from person to person. Yes, the "best way" to split a predicate is well-defined, but how to interpret an inconsistently split predicate like this is not "well-defined". In fact, for most things where the writer can write one thing and it's actually "technically" read in a different way, they're just more under-defined aspects of the language.

It's only ambiguous because it's grammatically incorrect though. If he had written the sentence correctly it would be well-defined, and while in some cases in English a sentence can be correct and underdefined, in this particular case any grammatically correct sentence would not have multiple interpretations and the fact it does proves it's wrong.
>>
>>143569955
>in this particular case any grammatically correct sentence would not have multiple interpretations and the fact it does proves it's wrong.
What grammar are you using to make this argument? Please do link it so that I can vest its references, because I certainly do not believe that a proper descriptivist grammar would forbid inconsistent usage of marking participles in a split predicate; people do that in speech, like, all the time.

So I was bringing home food, on the way, seeing Tim at the hot dog stand and stopping to say hi, and I noticed a twenty.

There's several ways to interpret what order the events here happened in because it's using participles inconsistently in a split predicate.
>>
>>143568760
Late to the party, but fucking isn't really modifying the verb (learning) there, so I'd call it an adjective. Dictionaries don't even make the distinction, so it's not something to fight about.
You're correct that "learning english" and "learning guitar" can be used as gerund noun phrases, but in the original context they are present progressive verbs. Learning doesn't refer to the act of a learning as a noun here.
"A girl who is learning English."
as opposed to
"The most important thing in my life is learning English."
Don't confuse the two.

>Yes it can
No, it can't. Not if you want it to make any sense, grammatically speaking. The main clause is "a girl who is (x, y, z)" so if you put "italian" at the end of that list you're saying the girl is italian.

This is not a rational interpretation of the writing, of course, since even the idiots in this thread who can't tell the difference between an ESL and a joke understood what the first guy was trying to say. The grammar is still wrong though, which happened because he made the choice to stick an awkward "fucking" in his sentence and reflexively stuck an Oxford comma in to try and "fix" the awkwardness.
It is true that the Oxford comma removes ambiguity, but in this case it's the wrong half of the ambiguity that's being removed, if you see what I mean.
>>
>>143569603
tell your friend to focus on grammar

one can easily learn the entirety of modern japanese grammar with shitty sub-4000 word vocabulary and ~250 kanji. After that, the only thing separating him and the meaning of literally anything ever written in japanese is a dictionary and google search.

(You) on the other hand have the time to fuck around with thousands of vocab, on top of grammar. And if you really do have several hours a day, you should be doing everything, including conversing with natives, watching TV, and reading actual novels.

People like him who stick with it are the type who could vacation anywhere in japan with zero problems (which is a feat), whereas you would approach the point where you could live there. Both of you will plateau eventually; he will need to get as "serious" as you with vocab if he wants to become truly advanced, and you will eventually have to live in japan if you want to become truly fluent.

assuming your goal is general proficiency and not "read porn with my tulpa"

>reflexively stuck an Oxford comma in
The oxford comma is not a second choice. The oxford comma is not optional. The oxford comma is not a patch for problems with the english language. The oxford comma is what's actually occuring in english grammar whenever you make list of several grammatical items. It's not possible to create a fully unambiguous english text without consistently and constantly applying the oxford comma. Your orthographic prescription against a default oxford comma was invented by papers and magazines looking to save money on ink. An overwhelming majority of linguistical grammar authorities state that the constant usage of the oxford comma is necessary for an unambiguous language.

Marry a Japanese person. You don't have to know ANY Japanese at all to apply for permanent residency, so long as you have a spouse who is a Japanese national.

False. Only one spouse needs capital or income. If you marry into a Japanese national who is financially stable and can support both parties, the person applying for citizenship needs no source of income of their own.

Do you really think that a traditionalist country like Japan would require a housewife applying for citizenship to have a job if her husband already has one?

Useful but somewhat overrated to be honest. That gives a faster answer, but not necessarily a great one, and of course you can't always do it. The main benefit of trying to produce is the process of
-Try and fail to say something. Often you will be looking for some phrase that you have seen in reading and know is proper for the situation, but can't recall it.
-Read more
-Come across the perfect phrase in reading/listening, and remember it forever because you place extra importance on it due to having tried and failed to say it

I live in a very culturally rich country and as such there are a lot of ESLs, and although they've been living in the same place for the same amount of time, some have perfectly fine English comparable to a native and some speak completely broken mistake-ridden Engrish.

It's not reaching. Unless you're already wealthy, you'd have to get a job in Japan, and your options are pretty limited if you don't speak their language.

If it makes you feel any better, most people program language learning tools to help with their own language learning. So when someone knows a lot about programming, but very little about what they're trying to program for, you get shit like this.

Reminder that literal retards and children can speak and the only prerequisite is that you actually study and practice consistently.

Didn't you know, anon? You literally lose your ability to learn languages with puberty. Only savants retain it, just like they retain the emotional immaturity of a child.

Wait, are you serious? I mean I learn languages better and faster than anyone I've ever met but I'm also essentially on the emotional level of a spoiled autistic 12 year old so this describes me perfectly.

No.

I just think it's funny that normies take "languages are easier to learn as a child" to mean "it's impossible to learn a new language as an adult", and use it as an excuse to be lazy and never try.

It's true that children have really high neuroplasticity and learn stuff like language easily, since they quickly have to learn to communicate with their tribe to survive in the world, but I don't think that's related to why people with savant syndrome often struggle to function socially. If anything, having the neuroplasticity of a child should help you acquire social skills extremely quickly.

The only critical period is the one where you acquire syntax. There's no critical period for learning new languages. You only get slightly less efficient at certain parts of it and more efficient at others.

Apparently a lot of pronunciations are really hard to get if you don't learn them as a kid. Which is why so many Asians struggle with R and L even after studying English for years and moving to an English-speaking country.

Fortunately Japanese doesn't really have any pronunciations that are unfamiliar to an English speaker.
>>
>>143584445
It's not actually that bad. The big problem is that speech training is such shit. They emphasize speaking over all else, instead of saturating the brain with tons of phonetic input. You need to saturate the brain with tons of phonetic input in order for the brain to be able to tell whether it's creating the right sound or not. You need to be able to tell whether you're making the right sounds if you want to be able to practice pronunciation properly. That's why watching english-subbed anime for a few years before you start learning japanese isn't literally useless.

Of course, there is a sizable minority chunk of the population that appears normal but has certain mental neural plasticities stop working earlier than they should. For them, learning new phonemes is legitimately hard.

>Fortunately Japanese doesn't really have any pronunciations that are unfamiliar to an English speaker.

I would argue that it has plenty that would be strange to a native English speaker, actually.

sure it has
there are various artifacts of its phonological evolution, like certain sound changes that happen with geminated plosives (e.g. yappari/yahari and nippon/nihon), the way it realizes its close back rounded vowel, and the fact that its sounds are not an exact math with those of English - the Japanese f being a bilabial sound or how it realizes ch/j without a palatal element

If Japanese wasn't so full of homophones you could just import using the "update if first field matches" option.
