They both sound understandable, and especially in speech you'll hear を with potential forms a lot. But according to prescriptive grammar it's incorrect. Potential verbs describe a state of being and don't take direct objects.

Ryan Baker
Ryan Baker

passives are what describe a state of being

potentials are OK to take a direct object; it just goes inside of the potentiality as in

William Bennett
William Bennett

It's "okay" but according to prescriptive rules it's incorrect. It's a rule everyone breaks until it becomes natural-sounding to do so, like double negatives or something in English, but it's still incorrect. He was asking what the difference is, and that's it.

Jacob Smith
Jacob Smith

prescriptivist rules are not actually the language

the difference is not "this one breaks prescriptivist rules". they actually register differently in terms of syntax inside the native japanese mind (at least ones that haven't been brainwashed into believing made-up versions of grammar; see people who cringe about splitting infinitives in english because it "feels wrong")

Nothing I've said has been wrong. Potential verbs describe a state of being.

私ができます
私が泳げます
私が食べられます

日本語ができます
漢字が読めます

But sometimes a potential verbs needs to specify both a subject and an object, and there are two ways to do so, plus a shortened version where the second particle is omitted.

私は魚が食べられません
私は魚を食べられません
私は魚食べられません

All of them are more or less the same, and a matter of personal preference. But を is technically incorrect; it's a way to go around the rules. I'm not saying he shouldn't use を because it's prescriptively incorrect. I'm just informing him what the difference is.

Can't decide if the second definition is insinuating that not pursuing women is peaceable, and if that would make the writer a MGTOW or a confused cuck with cognitive dissonance.

Dylan Gomez

You have been wrong. を isn't correct, just like splitting infinitives in english isn't correct. Just because it doesn't make sense with misunderstandings of classical grammar, doesn't mean it's wrong. They're not going around the rules. It's one thing to say that something is prescriptively incorrect, but it's another to say something like

It's a rule everyone breaks until it becomes natural-sounding to do so

when nothing of the sort is going on whatsoever.

You seem to have a deep misunderstanding of how the japanese case system actually works psychologically, probably based on prescribed grammar. を is not marking a direct object of 食べられます in the first place. 魚を食べ is being potentialized. The same underlying psychology that causes this to happen is the same underlying psychology that cause the passive and potential to merge in so-called "ru" verbs in the first place.

Asher Sanchez
Asher Sanchez

And you've done nothing but move this argument into realms of theoretical concepts like when you say "prescriptivist rules are not actually the language" or "deep misunderstanding of how the japanese case system actually works psychologically".

If that's the only difference, then what's the difference in psychology between日本語ができる and 日本語をできる? How does the Japanese mind, which you obviously have some insight into, interpret these two concepts?

Brayden Sanchez

And you've done nothing but move this argument into realms of theoretical concepts like when you say "prescriptivist rules are not actually the language"
Prescriptivist rules are literally theoretical concepts.
"deep misunderstanding of how the japanese case system actually works psychologically".
You mean the actual language?

If that's the only difference
I never said it was the only difference. Telling you that your explanation about prescriptivist grammar is not useful doesn't mean that prescriptivist grammar does not view these things this way. Prescriptivists may be offended by を being used here. That doesn't mean they're right.

This is like talking to an ESL that seriously believes with all conviction that "they" cannot be a singular pronoun. Jesus christ.

Your explanation that "魚を食べ is being potentialized" isn't any more helpful than mine. It can't even be applied to cases like できる.

This が vs. を thing occurs in the case of i-adjectives as well, as in 何を食べたい? Even though i-adjectives are not supposed to take direct objects, in casual speech such constructions are possible. This is the same sort of thing.

Your explanation that "魚を食べ is being potentialized" isn't any more helpful than mine.
It's much more useful to someone that actually wants to understand the language.

It can't even be applied to cases like できる.
That's because できる isn't a potential of する. できる is its own verb. It's just a stand-in for する not having a potential.

This が vs. を thing occurs in the case of i-adjectives as well, as in 何を食べたい? Even though i-adjectives are not supposed to take direct objects, in casual speech such constructions are possible. This is the same sort of thing.
Yes, it's the same sort of thing. 何を食べ is being conjugated, not 食べ. Remember: japanese does not have an infinitival phrase system like english does, so something like "I want (to eat food)" has no syntactical equivalent. Bear in mind that english's infinitival phrase system is literally batshit insane compared to all other germanic languages, and even romance languages.

Japanese is able to attach inflections to entire phrases. That has always been a well-known property of japanese among linguists. It doesn't surprise anyone at all. Except, of course, people who literally make up incomplete and deluded theories of grammar based on very limited patterns.

It's hard because there's isn't a single words that means the same thing in English. Without just using the words from the dictionary which you've seen already, it means something like "as one would expect in such a situation normally", or "As one would normally do" or "without thinking too much about it because it doesn't matter, just do something"

For example
適当に答える => Answer in a "standard" way, for example 元気ですよ would be a 適当 answer to 元気ですか?And 元気ですか is itself a 適当 question to ask someone when greeting them.

From my ventures into more business-oriented documents (I intend to start using this to make money soon), fiction seems like the final boss insofar as language that your average native speaker would understand.

So you took 7 months to read 10 LN volumes? I think you should be finishing them faster than that, especially since -- correct me if I'm wrong -- these types of LN authors tend to reuse vocabulary.

I dunno if the deck you posted is your mining deck or all your Japanese flashcards cumulative but it's seriously not okay to have a backlog almost exactly the same size as the cards you've seen. First off you're not even doing any new cards in the first place, so fix that and do 30 new cards a day if you're serious about seeing progress. Secondly I'd recommend that you either delete your entire backlog of mined vocab or sift through it for words that you think that you're likely to forget.

I honestly think that your biggest problem here is vocabulary. You're reading LNs fine but you're either looking up words on every single page and then forgetting them or worse, not understanding them at all. You need to hammer that vocab into your head and the most efficient way to do so is more Anki.

For reference, here's my Anki stats when I got ~220 on the JCAT. I scored ~250 6 months later.

Just do core

Irony.

Also, I wouldn't call Japan racist as a nation, though a postmodernist would, in their closed minded addiction to political correctness, try to boil some of the things that they do down to racism while throwing out troublesome things like nuance.

You can't make close friends!

Because they don't move around a lot. In such communities, people's closest friends are generally decided at childhood. Find foreigners or natives who weren't raised in the region where you live, and you'll have better luck.

It'll also help if you get good enough at the language that people can connect with you. Retreating into your little conclave of the English-speaking world after work is not a good way to make Japanese friends.

They have strict immigration policies!

Because they're smart enough to realize that importing troublemakers, idiots, poor people, and those with no respect for their culture means importing crime, stupidity, poverty, and the destruction of their values and way of life, respectively. They also realize that opening the valve too much means that you lose the ability to stop the latter. That's not the same thing as inherently having a low opinion of people who are born to a particular heritage, which is what racism means.

I mean this is obvious - if they were ESL but had the level of an English native, there would be no issue and we wouldn't even notice. The problem is the arrogant ESLs who think their English is perfect, when it's ridden with obvious mistakes that give the text an aura of being written by a 5 year old or mentally retarded person. Sadly there are far too many of them around, such as the person you're relying to.

Are you an ESL, or did you just skip over the paragraph for a second time?

The only ESLs that really get on my nerves are the ones who combine it with behavior that would be annoying by itself.
behavior
which would be annoying by itself
as in, the behavior is annoying when not combined with any other detracting factors, such as poor English; by logical progression, this means that the native English speakers that you claimed that I was excluding can indeed engage in the annoying behavior
however, the behavior becomes even MORE annoying when done by people who are poor at English

I shouldn't need to elaborate on that sentence so much. I thought that it was pretty clear in my original post.

Brandon Hughes
Brandon Hughes

I think the point about ESL being an insult is that such people shouldn't even be detectable on a platform like this. For someone to realise that you are an ESL from just a few lines of text can only mean that your english is absolutely appallingly shit, whether that's through disrespect or just sheer incompetence.

The behavior you speak of is not limited to ESL people, this is what your twisted logic is failing to understand. If you can't understand this then have the last reply and sleep well tonight.

From experience it's never about their English level though, they simply type in different ways at time, but different doesn't mean shit or wrong per se. The whole "their English is shit" here is just an excuse to justify their senseless hatred towards a particular group of people.

Also, you won't find native speakers who are as terrible at English as my examples, which were listed from experience.

You have to be really, really bad at English, so bad that there's no way that you're even a foreign speaker who's putting effort in, for it to worsen my opinion of you even further.

Ryder Nelson

it's with people being ESL and having shitty English
As we natives are known for having an outstanding ability to manipulate the English language. Poets and writers, hundreds and millions of us. Come on man, unless the post is completely fucking nonsensical, like something pulled off the chat log of some teenager's facebook profile, sperging out of it is kind of pointless.
It would be overall more conductive to discussion if you either ignored it, like you do with almost every other post with less than "perfect" English, or responded as you normally would but also bring up the part of the post which is gibberish and ask for some clarity. An example:

You fail to understand that the problem is not with people being ESL, it is with the people, ESL and fucking English.
What the fuck am I reading? Do you mean?

read moeges because they're easy they said
plotge language is too advanced for you they said
Or so I was told in this thread more than a year ago and it turned out to be the worst piece of advice I ever got.

All I got from moege was jokes and wordplay going over my head, whatever time it took to decipher the joke killed the comedy timing and it all felt flat, and whenever the romance shit started happening characters start talking about their feels in such roundabout way all 3 volumes of DoJG couldn't help me figure it out.

When I was close to quitting I tried a plotge for the fuck of it and it turned out great. Even as I missed the jokes and banter didn't click I always had an easy to understand plot to keep me going, all the "hard" vocab and kanji were a mouse over away thanks to the texthooker, story and setting gave enough context to the long winded feels talks to make them decipherable and shit was so fun I kept pulling all nighters mining tons of new words.

Now that my vocab isn't shit and I'm more familiar with most of the colloquial stuff I went back to moege and they're actually enjoyable to read.

Don't fall for the moege meme, guys.

Reading my first LN after only core6k... I have to check every few words with rikai, I've only read few pages so far and probably already mined 100 words.

It feels like Japanese has way too many different words. It's tough. I'll keep reading until the end though, but it really is tough compared to the manga I'd read, difficulty went straight up there; and here I thought my level had gotten not so bad recently... I'm getting crushed pretty good there.

カマをかける

【意味】 鎌をかけるとは、知りたいことを自然にしゃべらせるよう、それとなく誘導すること。

鎌をかけるの語源は、以下の通り諸説あり、正確な語源は未詳。
やかましい意味の「囂し(かまし)」に、「ひっかける」の「かける」を加え、相手にやかましくしゃべらせ、うまく聞き出す意味で「かまをかける」になったとする説。
「甑(こしき)」や「桶(おけ)」を作る時に、寸法を計る道具を「かま」と呼び、「かま」で寸法を確認することを「かまをかける」と言っていたため、自分の思い通りにする誘導の意味だけ残り、現在の意味になったとする説などがある。
しかし、「かまをかける」の語源は、上記のような特別な意味を含んだものではなく、単純に、鎌で引っ掛けるようにして、相手を引き寄せる意味からと考えて良いであろう。

I am working out of a textbook I brought and for each question I have given my answer, since this textbook seems to intended to be used in classrooms it does not give any answers so I have no idea if I am correct in the way I have answered each point or even if it is phrased naturally.

1. Masako and Kazuo Tanaka (the family name comes first in Japanese) have two children and a dog, so they brought a large.
田中正子さんと一夫さんは二つの子供がありますと子犬もいますので大きな車を買いました。

2. One (一人 hitori) of their children (of the children one) is six years old.

3. The car they brought (“the they brought” - 買った katta-car) was cheap
買ったの車は安かったです

4. They did not think the car they brought was dear (For reported speech* add と to “they did not think”)

No, but "Japanese the Manga Way" so yeah kind of I guess. The vocab grind is just too hard and boring. I'm up to a little over 1,000 vocab (no clue how many kanji) and I can already tell I just don't have the brain power to do another, what, 10,000 more or whatever.

If it motivates you, just mine all the words and you can read it in the future. I'm 8k words in and could read everything except 2 words. Just keep going and in the future you will also be able to read it. If this stuff is still to difficult try something else. Doesn't really matter what as long as you move on and don't stuck with the same beginner material all the time.

How do I motivate myself to use Hellotalk?

I realise that production is ridiculously important, but I just can't bring myself to do it

I used to use it for quite a while and it was actually pretty fun, but even knowing that it was good I still can't muster up the motivation, socialising is just so draining

You get used to it. I was professionally diagnosed with Social Anxiety Disorder and when I first tried it I ended up deleting the app because of my anxiety.

Downloaded it again a month ago and stuck with it and now I use it all the time. Every now and then you get a thirsty gaijin hunter too. Its fun.

No, production actively hurts your language learning. You are actually better off not doing any study at all then practicing production.

I guess it is an idiom, but I'm not sure how common it is. To drop something meaning to do or present, I guess. Like how DJs and rappers drop a beat or drop some sick lines.

And "〆" is an especial kanji.
We write it only on the cover of the envelope.
It's an appeal. "I sealed it completely."
If you send a letter to friends, you need not use 〆.
It is useful when you send an important documents or business.
