Is there a way to reselect a word after you select it?

Like if you went to write 退治 but selected 胎児 by accident, is there a way to change it without having to delete and retype it?

Bit of an update:
The 基本 BASIC page of the DoJG grammar reference linked on the djt site has now had the Notes added as text.
For reference:
bunpou.neocities.org/基本basic.html
bunpou.neocities.org/基本basicnight.html

That leaves the Intermediate and Advance pages to do. Might have then done before the it's time to eat 年越し蕎麦、but I doubt it.

You can't really. You'd have to make an HTML page and code the vertical text yourself (idk shit about this, but it's possible). It wouldn't align correctly on other sites.

In Office/Word programs you just find the "Text direction" option and change it.

Can someone help me understand this line?
今日は雑誌のインタビュー3本に収録1本とCM撮影があるけど。

It's a manga small talk, like those lines who are there just to fill space in the background, so context is pretty much inexistent.

My question is the particle に there. I've read somewhere that it CAN mean "and" between names, and from this dialogue I'm wondering if this is that case.
So it's "today has 3 magazine interviews, 1 recording and a CM shooting." (I have no clue what CM means).
Or is it "today has 1 recording and a CM shooting for the 3 magazine interviews."? (this is what I'd think it is from my meh grammar, but it doesn't seem to make much sense)

Help.

I guess if you don't like news in general.

If you want to read something easy and possibly learn something new about Japan, it's decent.

I guess if you don't like news in general.

I like news, NHK easy just covers kind of more boring stories, I guess maybe because it's aimed at kids, and it's written in a ridiculously boring way (obviously since it's easy)

It's good for beginners anyway

Kevin Wood

I really like the "color all city, company and given names" button, really useful. Wish there was a way to disable furigana though.

Go ahead and read it if you have extra time in a day but if you have extra time every day just do more anki or grammar (until you can tolerate reading real/compelling content of course)

Hey, lads
Turns out my HelloTalk strategy worked out. A japanese guy started talking to me and we managed to get the conversation going (it wasn't really interesting, but probably just enough for practice's sake)
A few minutes ago, before going to sleep, he asked if we could have a Skype call tomorrow and wouldn't take no as an answer. I'm shy and awkward as fuck, what should I do?

By the way, I also managed to build up some courage and message a japanese qt girl, but I'm still waiting for her to reply, since it's still 6am there

Luke Campbell
Luke Campbell

A japanese guy started talking to me and we managed to get the conversation going

I wish some japanese guys would talk to me, pretty unbearable having a list full of generic normie bitches, I was honestly tempted to change my sex on their to female

Christopher Sullivan
Christopher Sullivan

Is HelloTalk only for Jap<->Eng language exchange?

I could converse with some nips in my native language, but I feel stupid speaking proper German, and if I use my dialect they won't understand anything.

Brody Garcia
Brody Garcia

I know what you mean, senpai. Girls on HelloTalk tend to receive too much attention and ignore most of the messages they receive.
Anyway, I'm not sure you'd want to be in my place kek. This japanese guy called me handsome like three or four times and I'm starting to think he might be unironically gay

Cooper Cox
Cooper Cox

It's for any language as far as I'm aware

Hunter Bell
Hunter Bell

Is HelloTalk only for Jap<->Eng language exchange?
No. But you'll be hard pressed to find japs who are learning german. Maybe though.

Don't worry, they won't understand Hochdeutsch either so it doesn't matter

It's called

Ethan Thomas

Fuck that's a lot of work. Looking forward to the intermediate book getting the same treatment.

Gabriel Davis
Gabriel Davis

Man I can't handle VNs at all

By the time the ero parts come up the characters been developed too much and it just feels weird doing anything sexual to them

Evan Gutierrez
Evan Gutierrez

Read nukige then, they're pretty good practice as well

Camden Howard
Camden Howard

What do you mean?
Sex is the natural conclusion of a well-developed relationship
If anything it should feel weird having sex with randoms
Also what VN?

Jacob Cooper
Jacob Cooper

In many VNs sex scenes seem out of place and just shoved in to meet the ero quota, but there are some VNs where they fit nicely and feel natural.

Ethan Perez
Ethan Perez

Anyone able to figure out what the last kanji on the left here is?

Ryan Reed
Ryan Reed

わんことくらそう

Yeah, I guess it's not all VNs, just ones like this where the characters are all pure and daughter-like, can't handle it

Guess I should have been more careful in choosing it, no going back now though

Nathan Adams

Looks a lot like 考 but 考い isn't a word.

The polls have spoken. We will be singing Asterisk for the Bleach Cred Forums sings. We will be switching to the TV size version in the interest of actually getting something decent. Depending on interest at the end of the project I would be very happy to mix D-Technolife and Ranbu no Melody since those were the runners up and there was at least some interest.

I think I prefer shit without any ero in to be fair, I don't usually read VNs so I didn't really look much into what I was picking, but I'll keep it in mind for the next thing I pick up

Charles Gomez
Charles Gomez

I've had problems with certain words for more abstract social concepts that seem to have multiple english meanings (and is not clear what the main use case is meant to be), and differentiating their usage from words that seem to mean almost the same thing. I don't know that J -> E dictionaries have a solution for this problem. At what point do I just start using J -> J dictionaries?

Aiden Martin

That's the chapter I'm trying to read, so I guess that has to be it. Not entirely sure what it means in that context though.

There are eroless VNs, but they tend to be story-heavy and hard to read.

You can't.

Jason Edwards
Jason Edwards

So what does it mean?

Camden Flores
Camden Flores

You're probably better off going for a boy-girl relationship VN so the development and the sex feels more natural.

Isaiah Gomez
Isaiah Gomez

Just skip the ero parts then. There are plenty of plot heavy VNs that basically just put in an ero scene just for the sake of having an ero scene. You can skip them without losing any story.

Literally just read the guide, it has the exact thing you're looking for. And Yotsubato already has furigana, no matter how you read it. Follow the Anki startup guide, read Tae Kim, do about 1000 words from Core and you'll be ready to read Yotsubato.

Is there some gamified way to learn grammar?

Tae Kim seems far too lightweight to actually teach me something that'll stick. And Genki is a fucking chore that is boring as fuck.

Wanikani helped me greatly with retaining kanji because of how gamified it is. I need something similar with grammar if there is such a thing.

Aaron Carter
Aaron Carter

Force yourself to do something worse.

No really this helps. If you have a deadline for something that you find worse than japanese. You'll start studying japanese simply to procrastinate on that other deadline.

For example I made the most progress a month before Christmas and having to have dinner with the family of my girlfriend. The fear and hardship in not wanting to do any of that stuff gave me the motivation to hardcore study japanese.

yes, but obviously inefficient

As for the benefit, I recognize words that had audio more often than words without when I do listening practice.

Owen Hughes

使う is just regular using something
利用する is using something to your advantage in some way
用いる is more seldomly used and I only ever see it in explanations of the language, like "use past tense" or something.

The joke is that the bible even gives the names of Jesus's biological brothers.

James,Joseph,Judas,Simon. They could at least have picked one of those names.

James and Simon died before reaching adulthood. While Judas thought that Jesus was corrupting the jewish faith and was going to far with his megalomania and delusions of grandeur.

was nothing but people who should not be considered contributing members of society, but...
解雇する側にはなっても
even if they have to fire/discharge someone,
される側にならないよう、
in order to not be the one who is fired,
しっかり勤めを果たしたいものである。

Unless they're teaching it as fact, like Creationism crap, it's not really any more of a waste of time than other English literature, I agree. The way religion is generally taught in schools is more of this ethics shit though.

Well, katakana is a lot less frequent than hiragana. It'll stick eventually, but if you want you could review it every week or so, shouldn't take more than a few minutes anyway.

How to deal with things with multiple common pronunciations:

1) When the word comes up in anki, test if you know both pronunciations
2) Ignore meaning
3) Deal with the rest in reading and separate the two readings through context

Or even just test yourself that you know that it has multiple pronunciations. Anki is best for simple bits of information so when you have cards that are "tricky" in that manner that just means they aren't optimal to learn in anki

You can learn things in Japanese without learning what they mean in English. You don't need to be able to recognize it in a picture, just to be able to go "yep thats a fish, it's read like X" and sometimes it's nice to know whether it tastes good or not.

Just like in English you wouldn't think too hard if you heard "A cypress tree lane" even if you couldn't recognize a cypress tree for the life of you

I only use it long enough to find some kawaii grills to talk to and move to LINE. Though I haven't used it for a long time now

Lincoln Taylor

Just takes me a century to think of what to say and then type it out on the annoying ass phone keyboard

I'm sure it would be a different story if I could use a computer keyboard

Camden Morales
Camden Morales

The thinking of what to say part I can't really help but what keyboard are you using?
I used to use one where you type like on a computer but eventually I moved to pic related. It's pretty slow at first but you can get really fast with it and can do it one handed without looking that much

Camden Robinson

はい、夢があるよ
いつか小さな女の子を押し倒して服を乱暴に脱げてあの小さくて可愛いな膣穴に俺のハイパー兵器を入れて上下左右に動いて悲鳴や無き声を聞くながら射精を彼女の中に出したい

What's the point of talking to レア充 girls through whatever app?

Is it like to pretend to be social and care about each other just to train your production skills?

Luis Hernandez
Luis Hernandez

Just the default iOS one, it's alright, it just takes me a century to type with an english mobile keyboard let alone a Jap one

Hopefully I can just move onto skype if I end up talking to some people a lot, hard to ask though because everyone assumes you only skype for voice chat and I definitely can't be fucked with that

Grayson Thomas

Just use Line, half of Japan is already using it

Elijah Reyes
Elijah Reyes

Can you use Line on computers? That's sound then, I thought it was mobile only

Bentley Long

Yeah LINE is the way to go for that stuff. 90% of Japs you meet will use it and won't really fuss about adding you if you're friendly

I'm currently using Tae Kim's guide, and he tells that when you are expressing a sequence of verbs with the te-form, the last verb determines the tense of the sentense.

Like: 食堂に行って、昼ご飯を食べて、昼寝をした。

My question is: If I want to state it negativ is it just "食堂に行って、昼ご飯を食べて、昼寝をしなくて。"?

Brayden Allen

I would feel pretty slutty, installing an app just to talk to foreign girls in a different language. And you have another app just so you can troll around semi-publicly to find girls who are willing to talk to you on the first app.
Like at some point you've just gotta go outside right?

Oliver Wilson

annoying ass phone keyboard
Touch screens just aren't good for typing no matter what you do. I understand where you're coming from.

Liam Cook
Liam Cook

I might have been exaggerating before but I have some really good friends from the apps, even if they may be girls. People who I can meet if they come to my country and I can meet when I'm in Japan.

Also I left my room for like 30 minutes today

Ryan Rogers

むずかしいことをいうね

食堂に行って、お昼を食べて、昼寝をせずに、校舎に戻って、授業を受けて、買い食いしないで、帰って、晩御飯を食べて、お風呂に入って、宿題をしないで、寝た。

さんこうにしてね。がんばっておにいちゃんぐー

According to this, using a harder to read font improves learning.
What's a hard to read Japanese font?

Is leaving your house to tend to your human-free land something that erode your NEETcred ?

I admit i sometime see people on the road, even girls, but i never talk to them beyond an "hello".
I still belong, right ?

Gavin Moore

Like: 食堂に行って、昼ご飯を食べて、昼寝をした。

一人ぼっちで食堂に行って、一人ぼっちで昼ごはんを食べて、屋上から飛び降りた。

難しいかったが、かなりnegativeになったと思う

Julian Morales

But i care about you.
You are my kin.
If i lose you, i'm alone in this world without imoutos.

I'm just being polite... I don't even mean it !
Being polite is important, right ? I-it's like training my japanese right ?
I CAN'T JUST PRETEND THEY DON'T EXIST THAT'S RUDE PLEASE DON'T JUDGE ME

Quick question: I downloaded the "Making Sense of Japanese" book from the Cornucopia of Resources, but it seems to be missing page 63. Anyone has a mirror?
