Did you know?

The steam of all i-adjectives ends with an "i-", "a-", "o-" or "u-"step syllable but never with an "e-"step syllable like "ke", "te" and "se".

大きい (き = い)
ふかい (か = あ)
重い  (も = お)
軽い  (る = う)

NEVER : け て せ

Doesn't matter to you, they learn it as kids. If you just pick a method it will stick eventually. RTK is better if you want to write by hand. Vocab if you don't

There is only one thing that can give you bad habits: not exposing yourself to the target language.

Brayden Butler

Between VNs and LNs, "what's the best"?

VNs have sound true but I feel like LNs might be better in the long run as they force you to really pay attention to what you're reading. You need to put the effort to immerse yourself in what you're reading and that might make you remember what you're reading better. Kind of like "the hard way is tougher but the reward at the end of the road is greater".

Thoughts?

theres a major deficiency in how people learn written japanese here so you need texthookers to fill in the gaps until youve stared at japanese you dont understand long enough to remember what it looks like so only then can you transition to books and shit

Ayden Robinson

Hey guys, what's the best, movies or books?

Gavin Edwards
Gavin Edwards

They're both important, I'd say you need a mix of them both

VNs are good because you get reading and listening practice at the same time, they also tend to be easier to get immersed into and read for long periods of time

But LNs are more important for reading comprehension, they tend to be more challenging and help you get used to large quantities of dense text

Xavier Cooper

The problem is you should not be recognizable. Cred Forums is an anonymous website and the same way tripfagging is frown upon typing and acting in a particular way on purpose to get attention from others is frown upon.

And please don't give me your "this is just how I am", let's be honest you know very well what you're doing and have said it plenty of times already. This past week alone I've noticed more and more people fed up with your attitude. I don't actually believe you're a bad person but I do believe your attitude has definitely a negative impact on this place.

Things shouldn't even work in one way or the other, in any way, around yourself. How hard is it to understand? Are you that new to Cred Forums? Or is it because you are still at "that age"?

If despite this you still wish to be recognized and still wish to go on with your DJT e-fame then put on a trip. This is the only fair solution here as it would let people the possibility to filter you and thus avoid conflicts.

Had the argument been reversed you'd have taken an opposite stance for the sake of swarming like the larvaes that you are. Fuck off.

This might make it a little less confusing. Here is the quote in question:

I'm not entirely sure how writing helps one read either light novels or visual novels, as they are both published using computer fonts; one digital and one print.

Has Nintendo finally released a decent handheld?

Brandon Wright

Caleb Rodriguez
Caleb Rodriguez

What the hell is that reply. If you can't understand such a basic concept you're beyond helping, man.

Read again, then look at the thread. Look at everyone posting here - can you recognize them or not? Can you tell yourself "oh yeah I've had a conversation with that guy before"? No you can't. It should be exactly the same to us when it comes to you. Why can't you understand this and why are you acting like this is not something you can help with?

I know it's tempting but don't go on saying I'm some autist that is often around here because I've actually not taken part in much drama or even anything here recently.

If despite this you still wish to be recognized and still wish to go on with your DJT e-fame then put on a trip. This is the only fair solution here as it would let people the possibility to filter you and thus avoid conflicts.

Fuck off.

"written Japanese" as in Japanese that has been written down, i.e. not spoken Japanese
Hence the question about calligraphy, user.
You know there is narration and dialogue in both light novels and visual novels?

ESL party tonight isn't it
I was merely asking for clarity, user, as a good 90% of silly arguments online are based off people getting riled up over assumptions and following up by talking past each other. It is a little sad that when someone sensibly tries to get someone to clarify what they said, instead of being pointlessly antagonistic, the personal insults start raining out.
English is the only language I can claim to know. Furthermore, English natives are the vast majority of the userbase here, so it is kind of odd to immediately jump to such a petty insinuation.

English as Second Language.
It's an insult used here which is the same as when someone reverts to calling someone else a faggot, when they have nothing to add.

Don't agree with someone, call them a faggot.
Aren't able to keep up with a conversation, call someone a faggot.
Don't like the way an user posts, call them a faggot.
ESL works in the same manner.

Acting like an user and work on your self-awareness should be a good start. This is for your own sake as well as a person - not necessarily only for others.

But who am I kidding, as said above you're very much aware of what you've been doing here.

Oh and please don't play the victim card.

Ian Gutierrez
Ian Gutierrez

reading has absolutely jack shit to do with calligraphy

"written japanese" just refers to written japanese as opposed to spoken japanese
as in, text japanese
all LNs are written japanese and VNs have both written and spoken japanese

i don't know why jamal thought it was important to make the distinction

sorry for jumping to conclusions but it really is a miracle you managed to misunderstand his post

Also the "only English is worth anything" argument.
To be fair, I could get by with only English in all civilized countries (yes, even Japan). German? Not a chance. French? Great language spoken in two industrialized nations and a bunch of shitholes. Spanish? Awesome language spoken in poor countries only.

That's not to say there's no merit to speaking languages other than English, but having complete mastery of the English language is a lot better than having complete mastery of some EU-language and an English level that is just passable.

Juan Green

Jose Clark

having complete mastery of the English language is a lot better than having complete mastery of some EU-language and an English level that is just passable.

What is your basis for this comparison? If anything what you said directly before this works against your point because you having a passable level in English would be enough for you to get by in much of the world AND you'd know another language to boot. Regardless this comparison is stupid to begin with because it depends entirely on where you live and work.

You're only talking of "getting by" here, and only this. This is narrow-minded, knowing more than one language is more than that and considering you're in this very thread apparently learning Japanese you must probably know this by now.

Of course I agree that English is indeed a very useful language which opens you a lot of doors, myself I'm using right now to have a conversation with you - but that shouldn't be an excuse to act superior and insult non-natives. Only people with ego complexes would resort to such insults.

I don't use anki but if I did I wouldn't let it pass in that case. If you get it wrong, you get it wrong.

And mistakes are mistakes, regardless of how obvious they appear in retrospect.

Owen Bennett
Owen Bennett

Have you tried? It is basically the same as anki, in that you get a sentence full of words that you either know or don't, and if you don't you look it up. But in addition you get the context rather than just isolated words. I think that can help you with your problem too. The context usually makes it much harder to fail at obvious words because if your first guess is wrong, you immediately realize based on the rest of the sentence.

Why are you assuming he does only anki...? You also read and add mined words with context sentences, which is what most do. That is strictly superior to solely reading.

Jose Watson

I do read all the time as well, just with anki on the side

I've never tried not using it, I just assume it would be a bad idea since my retention in anki is terrible, and I often forget words while reading that I've encountered thousands of times before

It's too late for me to try not using anki now anyway since I have like 15k mined vocab and there's no way to pause it or anything, once you're in it once you're in it for life

It's bad logic to assume that because you're doing badly at something it will get even worse if you change. Perhaps the reason you are doing bad at something is that it doesn't work for you.

It's too late for me to try not using anki now anyway since I have like 15k mined vocab and there's no way to pause it or anything, once you're in it once you're in it for life.

And this is of course just in your mind. You can simply stop. Anki is not the master of your life unless you make it

Yeah, I don't know how it would go if I stopped, but I can at least assume that for someone that has a bad memory something like flashcards would be something they'd want to invest time into, of course I'll never know since I'm not willing to stop, but I only spend like 15% of my study time on anki anyway so it doesn't really matter either way

And this is of course just in your mind. You can simply stop. Anki is not the master of your life unless you make it

Very true, I'd be throwing away the cards that I'm still in the process of remembering though, and the one's that I have remembered but don't have a great grasp of, as well as a few hundred cards I still have yet to come up

Either way I don't think it would be worth stopping to see if it improves anything, only to find out that it doesn't, and then being unable to go back to my old decks because the intervals would be all fucked up, I'd rather just keep torturing myself with it forever

That's just the point, though. You can't. Even if you tell him, he honestly believes the problem lies with the other 100 posters, not with him.

Joshua Flores

He's obviously just a troll

There have been plenty of times he's posted comments where he doesn't act like a retard but you can still tell it's him, and then 5 minutes later he's back to pretending he has an IQ of 10

He's just a generic attention whoring shitposter who finds it easier to be retarded then useful

And just like with any shitposter the only solution is to ignore it and not talk about it, something that everyone on here seems to have a really hard time doing for whatever reason

He's obviously just a troll pretending he has an IQ of 10
Then, his "real" IQ is probably around 85 or so? No person of average intelligence would find entertainment in flinging monkey shit around.

Nolan Robinson

For how long have you done 40 new cards/day ?

Cameron Nelson

15 days

Adrian Reed
Adrian Reed

Usually you can assume that you'll get a daily review count of ~10x your new cards/day. How long it takes to reach this level depends on how often you get the cards wrong, and how many of them are unknown to you from the start, of course. I'd say give it another month or so and you'll be doing 400 reps or so a day.

Actually for your typical VN "read" would be more fitting because that's really all there is to do. However, for dating sims like Amagami, Kimikiss and Tokimemo "play" is far more fitting. In fact I'd argue that for most VNs and sound novels with (exclusively) console releases "play" is the correct word to use though I couldn't really tell you why I think so, it just feels "right". Conversely, VNs that were originally on PC like Umineko and Steins' Gate that later got console ports are still best described using "read" to me.

Julian Bennett

I hate that people use the term "smartphone" unironically, particularly in languages other than English. It makes no sense.

Everyone learns a little different, but from personal experience and advice from others I would go read material and then use tae kim and the dictionaries as a reference when you don't understand a grammar concept that you come across.

Insight occurs when your brain can make the connection between the example you are reading and the academic concept you are looking up. It's much more likely to stick with you long term than just trying to rote memorize a grammar dictionary.

Most people don't learn basic grammar by rote even for their first language.

Dumb question, but why is "人は魚が好きだ" translated as PEOPLE like fish, and "魚が好きな人。" Person that likes fish?

Because 人 has more than one meaning. It can also mean mankind, character etc. What you read is just an example sentence, it doesn't really matter there.

Andrew Hernandez

人は魚が好きだ
人 is the topic here.
As for people, they like fish.

魚が好きな人
Person/People that like(s) fish. Here you use adjectives to describe a certain group of people or a single person.

魚が好きじゃない人は、肉が好きだ
The topic here is the whole clause before は.

When 人 is used as the topic it always refers to people in general then, never person?
No it can be either. Plural is something you need to infer from the context.

Zachary Perez
Zachary Perez

So even though Tae Kim's guide says "Here, the entire clause 「魚が好き」、「魚が好きじゃない」、etc. is modifying "person" to talk about people that like or dislike fish. You can see why this type of sentence is useful because 「人は魚が好きだ」 would mean "People like fish", which isn't always the case." He is wrong?

Colton Murphy
Colton Murphy

He is wrong?
No.

人は魚が好きだ。-> "People like fish"
あの人は魚が好きだ。-> "That person likes fish"

Here you're just making a statement, like a fact. And with 魚が好きじゃない人は and so on you're describing the topic or a group of people further.

Exactly what he says.

Don't think about these basic things so much or you'll just overcomplicate them. Stuff like this will come naturally as you read more.

I always wondered, how do you read this out loud?
When it comes to "romaji" I always read it in my native language in my head.
In this case it's wüwüwü

What did she mean by this? Is it some sort of thing girls tell each other when they go peeing or something?

I don't get it. For the record ななちゃん goes peeing as well next panel.

That's a given.
I just know passing the JLPT isn't equivalent to knowing Japanese so I figured I should ask if I should specifically study for the kanji portion of the test.

i meant fuss over in a more active sense, like doing what imouto's doing

he pretty much exists only for the sake of beginners who've been studying for a few months and have just figured out they can understand everything he posts so i think it's alright to leave what he's doing to him

If you want the most thorough method, first learn how to read, then apply the information in Kodansha Kanji Learner's Course to your reading ability.

yeah

"lawful"

"lawful" evil is always just "lawful", not actually *lawful*

lawful evils believe themselves to be the law, essentially, when you're actually roleplaying

So he exists for the sake of DJT since most posters here are beginners, at all times.
The guy corrects people when he can instead of bitching about it like you, which basically derailed the thread with niggerdom.

Chase Young

Can't hurt.
You could specifically study kanji alongside what else you are doing and approach it as though you are studying for the 漢検. I don't know how the JLPT assesses kanji knowledge but I doubt it is as thorough as 漢検.

Does the Kodansha Kanji Learner's Course have good Anki decks, like Remember the Kanji1/3 and Kanji Damage?

Matthew Rodriguez
Matthew Rodriguez

Yeah after posting I realized the の was probably not needed.

指定 probably sounded a bit stiff and unnatural here indeed but that's the thing that popped in my mind.

Thanks!

Open your Anki deck. The Real-Time Import plugin will automatically load itself.
I'm trying to figure out how to set up Rikaisama's Anki Real-time Import function but I'm a bit lost. What do they mean exactly by "open your anki deck"?

I set up all fields and all like they should be but pressing "R" key when I highlight a word does not do anything.

Owen Powell

the screen before you hit 'study' means that deck is opened.

Okay I just realized no matter what key I press Rikaisama isn't even reacting, even when hovering words.

I don't know how to fix that.
