I'm heading to Japan for vacation in two weeks and trying to increase my study time whenever I find the time.

Currently I can only reliably count objects using the generic つ. Would that be enough to make myself understood, even if it makes me seem like a moron? I'd rather focus on learning other things in those two weeks, than learning the various forms of counting objects.

Juan Green
Juan Green

Don't worry, I know I can't magically learn a ton in two weeks, it's more about how I use my studying time. Learning the 10 different ways of counting objects seems kinda low priority.

I finished jtmw and I've started reading and listening to mine useful vocab in addition to core 2k, and to help the grammar sink in.

One line in this song is really confusing for me, though, and I was wondering if anybody here could help me figure out how exactly に is being used here.

Noah Young
Noah Young

Can someone explain to me what the passive form is used for?
I see it all the time but I don't quite understand it.

Benjamin Watson
Benjamin Watson

に is technically an adverbial particle most of the time

ず is an archaic negative verbal conjugation

ずに makes an adverbial negative phrase

English grammar lesson on what adverbial really means: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adverbial_clause

it's different from other "X_Y" "Y, and not X" in that it doesn't imply that the lack of X is a reason for Y. it's contrasting the two instead. for example, "起きなくて遅いんだ" implies that the two parts are somehow connected, but ずに is providing contrast/concession instead. there's a common pattern in languages where archaic-seeming adverbial conjunctions are less literal than modern-seeming ones.

"I left school, be it not summer" "I left school, but it wasn't summer" "I left school, though it wasn't because of summer coming" "Even though it wasn't vacation I had to leave school" the most appropriate interpretation depends on context.

Henry Cruz
Henry Cruz

You know how sometimes people want to say something about an event, but it was an event where thing A did something to thing B, but you don't know how to refer to thing A?

Such a sentence would be hard to write. As it were, using the passive noun (the non-active one) as the subject would be required. Then the passive verbal form is used.

Oh, thanks for the explanation! I had no idea ず even had any effect on anything, I thought 来ず was just another way of saying 来ない. None of the dictionaries I checked really pointed that out and I don't think it was in jtmw either. 

I think I'm starting to get it, though. I'm gonna save your post to a notepad reminder for the future. Thanks again!

Tyler Allen

Caleb Allen
Caleb Allen

ず is basically ない but it has the semantics of a verbal ending instead of an adjectival ending

plus it's archaic so it shows up a lot in fixed phrases that have slightly non-literal meanings (like ずに)

I think that's the sort of thing you would usually say at the end of a long day's work considering it's literally just 疲れ (tiredness) with the polite お prefix attached. I think the intended meaning is something to the effect of "I acknowledge that you've worked hard today (and I appreciate it)".

When I was 16 I took this fat girl from the anime club to a date (I was desperate) to a Japanese restaurant. I memorized how to order food in Japanese and so on. When we arrived and the waitress came, I recited the order from memory. She just looked at me like an alien. So I repeated it twice more with no more success.

In the end it was a Chinese restaurant. I had to change school because the bitch told everyone.

I'd enjoy it. It would be hilarious. It's not that I really give a shit about social opinion on me or whatever, besides following some basic politeness principles to avoid headaches. Plus, I'd get to laugh at you with the rest of the people. My only real complain would be going to McDonalds. You can do better than that.

Yeah, but I'm too much of a beginner to write about that in Japanese.

Adrian Ortiz
Adrian Ortiz

Why would you write about it at all? And I hope you didn't follow that advice because you just told whoever you're talking to that you raped your mother.

Nicholas Ramirez
Nicholas Ramirez

TK helps surprisingly little when dealing with colloquial shit in the end, even though he goes through all the effort to teach casual phrases. Though you probably shouldn't be trying to read anything if you haven't even gotten all the way through something as simple as tae kim, you're bound to run into tons of shit you don't know
You pretty much just need to expose yourself to a lot of simple grammar through cartoons, and get good at using google to look up confusing expressions if you want to learn japanese

I'm one of the people who always argued in favor of being able to change the OP image, and I still say we shouldn't just allow fucking _anything_

It should at least have the text:
DJT
Read the guide before asking questions
on it somewhere. It actually _is_ useful by the way since most people will at least read text in the OP and will be reminded to read the guide.

If someone can't take the time to add that simple text to an image then they shouldn't be changing it.
Just because we're all ok with changing the image now doesn't mean it always has to be different. You can still just use the old ones if you want, rather than just posting some random image.

Caleb White
Caleb White

Why would you write about it at all?
I want to practice more casual and honest conversations because that's what I usually have trouble with when learning a new language.
you just told whoever you're talking to that you raped your mother.
Good thing that's what happened.

Brandon Miller
Brandon Miller

It's just an image. If the text is already in the OP adding it to the image is redundant. No one reads the guide anyway.

Ayden Lee
Ayden Lee

Having "DJT" on it should be the minimum requirement, to be honest. I'd even consider the second line voluntary.

Juan Parker
Juan Parker

I disagree, that's information we're talking about now, not "just an image".

Even people who ignore OP text in general threads when they just want to ask a quick question, are more likely to at least see the text if it's in an image.

Is there a guide/dictionary which contains grammar such as that?
The A Dictionary of Japanese Grammar series. We have an Anki deck covering every single main entry.

Isn't this explained and linked in the Guide? It's probably the best thing to come out of these threads, aside the CoR.

Colton Peterson
Colton Peterson

The DoJG Anki deck is one of the worst things ever made.

Grammar should never be done through Anki - unlike vocab, it's too complex and context-reliant to be squeezed onto flashcards, so you either have these enormous cards which are awful for the quick recollection that Anki is designed for, or cards which miss a lot of the depth and subtlety required to actually understand the grammar point in the wild. Consulting DoJG is good and useful, but you should learn grammar from reading. Attempting to do it through Anki will only cripple your progress.

Ryder James
Ryder James

The DoJG Anki deck is one of the worst things ever made.
Your opinion is cool and all but it has been the best thing for my Japanese and a lot others have made similar observations within their own studies.
Consulting DoJG is good and useful, but you should learn grammar from reading.
What do you think example sentences are? This also isn't a dichotomous issue; there is nothing stopping you from reading AND using Anki at the same time.

But you're probably just a bored troll.

Aaron Campbell
Aaron Campbell

I agree, all that deck does is make you waste extra time in anki.

David King
David King

anki can only be used for one specific type of card template and review format
Cool story bro.

Lucas Torres
Lucas Torres

Your opinion is cool and all but it has been the best thing for my Japanese

How much of a beginner must you be to say this lol.

Why do you think you should be offering your opinions on anything to do with Japanese?

Liam Lewis
Liam Lewis

Why should I offer opinions of the positive impact of an Anki deck on my study? Why don't you think about that a little more.

Brayden Howard
Brayden Howard

why think about it no one gives a fuck dude lol

Owen Perez
Owen Perez

I disagree, sure it shouldn't be your only exposure to grammar, but it's nice to have some reminders since there are some fairly similar grammar elements there. It's only 6-700 cards, so it takes very little effort to do that deck to maintain your grammar knowledge, so you don't mix up for example ~として and ~にしては.

I read the DOJG books themselves and then downloaded the deck, and those few hundred cards only take a few dozen reps once a week to maintain all that knowledge.

John Roberts
John Roberts

Since you're still a beginner you cannot possibly have any idea what is beneficial to you or not in the long term. Stupid arrogant beginners posting their opinions about things is why /djt/ sucks.

Jose Sanders
Jose Sanders

I know there's the guide, but did everyone here follow exactly how the guide was, or what's your reccomended way of learning japanese?

Eli Ward

Jose Sanders

Andrew Ward
Andrew Ward

What do you think example sentences are?
The idea that example sentences on flashcards are somehow comparable to actually reading real Japanese media is laughable. Example sentences have their place, but they are not in any way a substitute for actual reading, which should be the heart and soul of your Japanese learning.

Anki should not be used for overly large cards, it goes against the principle of flashcards which is training yourself to achieve quick, instant recognition. Vocab cards work because you can usually (although not always) have a single English word which corresponds with the Japanese word, eg 猫 = cat. This doesn't work with grammar, and you are actually hurting your understanding if you attempt to do so.

But how long did it take you in the first place to get all those cards to mature? And did it teach you anything you wouldn't have got from reading?

Henry Bailey
Henry Bailey

Good one! XD

Isaiah Perez
Isaiah Perez

But how long did it take you in the first place to get all those cards to mature?
Not long. You can even use (and should use) longer intervals than your vocab deck, since grammar is harder to forget. After 2 reps they already went to 1 month+ intervals. I capped it at 1 year, and half of the cards are already there.

And did it teach you anything you wouldn't have got from reading?
You don't have feedback during reading if you got it right or not, that's the point. It's very easy to mistranslate something without even realizing it. So no, reading cannot really replace these occasional reminders.

Joseph Phillips
Joseph Phillips

The DoJG Anki deck is one of the worst things ever made.
Have you tried it?

I've found it to be a pretty good way to review.
Like this guy said. A lot of "grammar" are set phrases or idioms which must be memorized.

Carson Brown
Carson Brown

Anki can replace everything. I do anki without any reading and I think I'm doing pretty well.

Dominic Hernandez
Dominic Hernandez

I practice grammar once a week, so it's impossible for me to also read
This bait is really getting stale.

Aiden Garcia
Aiden Garcia

I don't practice grammar once a week though. I do anki all day instead of reading to achieve that sweet LN fluency.

Carter Campbell
Carter Campbell

A lot of "grammar" are set phrases or idioms which must be memorized.
Or not because they indicate a lot about the underlying influences behind japanese phrase structure and memorizing them blindly deprives you of acquiring those indications early on.

What's the deal with adding demonstrative pronouns (この、その etc) to pronouns (彼、俺、私 etc)? I see it a lot, particularly when a speaker is referencing him/herself as the subject of a sentence, but I don't really get it. Is there a DOJG entry?

Also an example sentence where it's used (taken from an unrelated DOJG entry): 彼は日本語を20年も勉強しているがその彼にしたところで、まだ分からない文法に時々出くわすそうだ。Translation: He's studied Japanese for 20 years, but he told me that even he still encounters grammar he doesn't understand.

and memorizing them blindly
That's why the deck is replete with example sentences showing different context and nuances involved in the general usage, along with usage and formation notes.

Seriously, fuck off with this blatant misrepresentation. All it does is potentially mislead real beginners into not taking advantage of the really useful products of this thread.

even if it goes on to say "you should do both" it's still saying "example sentences are" something "you should learn grammar from" as an alternative to "reading"

What did he mean by this?

Asher Clark
Asher Clark

The meaning is something like "x (of all people)" or something. Like if a supervillain loses, he would say この俺様... when failing to understand how he, of all people, could possibly lose.
In your example sentence, it appears in the translation as "even he".

Holy fuck what a waste of time. I don't know why redditors are so preoccupied with placebos like making endless graphs about their reading instead of just fucking reading.

Not even DOJG includes everything. Not anywhere close.

It's not necessarily chuuni, but it can be in some context.

Zachary Barnes
Zachary Barnes

I've noticed this for a lot of random small grammar points actually.
That's because DoJG only necessarily covers things that need explanation for how they're used. It covers the equivalents of "as it were" and "just because X doesn't mean Y" rather than stuff like "as to" or "for what it's worth". Sure, it'll cover things in the latter kind when there's interesting stuff to say about them, but book space is limited, so things that can be analyzed through more-general grammar rules is usually left out.

(idiomatic) Abstaining from drinking any alcoholic drink, usually in the sense of having given it up (as opposed to never having partaken); teetotal.

163 days.
With 151 days of actually studying.

It will take me 301 days of actual study to finish the deck, so if I don't skip anything,October 19th is the date.

But if I keep my average study of 92%, throw in 12 days and we have HALLOWEEN!

I will probably attach the Core10K later, though, so I won't be able to celebrate much.

I hear 20 around here more often. 30 seems like it would be tough without prior knowledge of kanji, from my experience.

Isaiah Moore
Isaiah Moore

That's because you're focusing on your mistakes, rather than on your correct answers.

Suppose you go from 90% accuracy to 80% accuracy by switching from 10 to 20.
That'll be going from 90% of 10 (9 cards) to 80% of 20 (16 cards) in the same amount of time.

It brings more reviews, but if you've got the time to spare, you can do it, your head will adapt in no time.

Landon Hill
Landon Hill

You should probably toss out all the number related cards and just go over them somewhere else instead, like here

Also, have you done any kanji study? It might help you if vocab is too tough right off the bat

Joseph Diaz

I don't know whether what I'm doing is actually useful, to be honest, I just do it.
It helps practicing writing and reinforcing stroke order, but I wouldn't say it has helped me that much with remembering the kanji themselves.

If I had to write them from memory, I'd probably fail most of the times, I write as I review, before showing answer.

But once I memorize a kanji, it's pretty straight-forward writing it, since it already feels natural to my hands.

Sometimes an anime gives a title for the next episode in full-kanji, but the furigana is written like a different word.

no matter what disclaimers you add to this it doesn't change what it means senpai
It means what it fucking means: reading sentences and looking up patterns from manga, etc. is no fucking different than reading example sentences from a grammar guide and using those to take into account the explanations in order to understand what it means and how it is generally used. You are referring to connotative usage while ignoring detonated descriptions. This is basically the foundation of a strawman argument.

There is a vast difference between "learning grammar" and becoming intimately familiar with the range of connotative usages and contexts the particular structure exists within. It's fucking ridiculous to think that elementary reading and looking up descriptions of constructs is remotely enough to cover this process. It takes YEARS of massive input to build up this intuition. Learning the fundamentals of the "grammar" using something like the DoJG is not meant to replace the knowledge of the language accrued from massive input. This is something that bears repeating because it underscores the strawman argument all of these "you can't learn grammar from textbooks/etc." retards constantly propagate. Maybe it will sink in on day. It got them to stop sperging out over learning vocabulary via spaced repeition systems, which prior to they would go off with similar stupid strawman arguments like you are now but instead of grammar, towards vocabulary.

Anyone who systematically takes advantage of something like the DoJG Anki deck as a part of their daily study is going to have a far greater structural comprehension of Japanese at a faster rate that someone who doesn't, exactly as someone who takes advantage of something like the Core series vocabulary Anki decks are going to have a far greater base passive vocabulary over a short period of time compared to those who do not. It's common fucking sense.

What does the いって mean in "ゆっくりしていってね!!!"?

Is it 言って with some abstract meaning?

It looks like he's demanding you commit harakiri, probably because you're a disgusting gaijin asking him to do something for you in retarded Google Translate speak.

The ordering of the deck is fucked up for some reason. The same goes for the Core10K deck in the CoR.

To fix it:
click "browse"
select the deck
click "fields", select the "id" field and ensure that "Sort by this field in the browser" is enabled
click the sort column and ensure that the cards are ordered starting from "1"
click the first card ("1"), scroll all the way to the bottom, then hold SHIFT and click on the last card ("2200")
click "edit", then "reposition", then "ok"
(ensuring all cards are still selected) click "edit", then "reschedule", then "ok"

I live in a region of Brazil that is filled with German immigrants so I ended up learning German at school along with the the usual English and Spanish and it's the most boring language I've ever learned by far.

Kanji at least look different from each other and have their own meanings, so it isn't that tiring to memorize them. German words, on the other hand, all have their respective articles (der, the masculine article, die, the feminine article or das, the tumblr gender neutral one), and there is no rule to tell you which article each word uses, so you have to memorize the useless article of every single word you learn and they are always the same boring shit: der, die or das.

German is an ugly language too, and when I went to Germany on a student exchange program back when I was in high school I found out that even the country itself is a shithole. Really, I'm a Brazilian so trust me, I know what a shithole is like and I'd rather live in my third world piece of shit for the rest of my life than to go back there ever again.

In Germany almost everyone smokes so no matter where you go you can be sure that it'll smell like shit. Everyone drinks carbonated water there, when you just ask for water in a restaurant or something they already assume that you want carbonated water, which I found weird but then understood after tasting their tap water as it tastes like plastic. Even their bottled still water tastes the same for some reason. The food isn't that good either and there is nothing interesting to do there other than visiting concentration camps and hearing about how you should feel sorry for the jews. I spent my entire trip there wishing I'd gone to England, an actual good European country, for the second time instead.

I don't even use my German anymore, I'm sure that I'll forget it eventually.

This is no longer true. Due to heavy anti-smoking campaigns and forbidding smoking in most public areas, smoking is pretty much gone from public places.

I found out that even the country itself is a shithole.
Depends on where you go. Generally, Eastern Germany is worse in all metrics, but they've caught up due to federal redistribution, which is why they at least have good infrastructure now.

nd there is no rule to tell you which article each word uses
Implying that it isn't totally obvious that butter is female, trees male and law neutral. I mean, just look at the butter!

The food isn't that good either
We have a huge variety of meaty foods, especially sausages, and bread types. If you like that, you're good here.

after tasting their tap water as it tastes like plastic.
Tap water tastes very differently depending on the region, since the water supply is very, very decentralized (like everywhere in continental Europe, I guess), but tap water quality is actually higher than carbonated water quality both here and elsewhere. People just like carbonated water, though.

there is nothing interesting to do
Due to the intensity and decentralization of public culture funding (especially when compared to France, which has very centralized culture funding), every backwater village has music events, theatre, concerts, festivals and whatnot. Our big events in the big cities are probably shit, but in return we have small and medium events literally everywhere, all the time.

Well it sounds like you wouldn't be happy in any country visit.

In that wall of text you actually didn't tell us one legit piece of information why it's bad there, just you being incapable of looking for interesting places.

This is due to different mythological roots.

The French were influenced by the Romans, who had a male sun god (Sol Invictus -> soleil) and a female moon goddess (Luna -> lune).
In Germanic mythology, the sun deity was a female (germanic: Sawelo; old High German: Sunna -> Sonne) while the moon deity was male (germanic: Menan; old Nordic: Mani -> Mond).

Hello.
I have issues with the ordering of the subjects in my sentences, namely where to put things so that my sentences don't come out kinda backwards.

For instance, I get the jist that time and persons are some of the first things that you identify in a sentence and actions and tenses tend to stick to the end of sentences.

For instance: 次木曜日はお父さんの誕生日です。
This sentence structure seems pretty straightforward to me in that I'm conveying that next Thursday is my dad's birthday. However it gets more grey as I try to continue: その日は休日お願いなりますか? I'm attempting to convey "That day, may I request it off from work?"

I am fully aware that if as a dirty foreigner, if I were to ask this of my employer in a workplace, I'd be shot and hung on the spot for doing so. Let alone taking a vacation day(s) scheduled months in advance. ありがとう、読者。

Here is what trying to speak German as a GSL is like:
I say to myself, "Regen (rain) is masculine -- or maybe it is feminine -- or possibly neuter -- it is too much trouble to look now. Therefore, it is either der (the) Regen, or die (the) Regen, or das (the) Regen, according to which gender it may turn out to be when I look. In the interest of science, I will cipher it out on the hypothesis that it is masculine. Very well -- then the rain is der Regen, if it is simply in the quiescent state of being mentioned, without enlargement or discussion -- Nominative case; but if this rain is lying around, in a kind of a general way on the ground, it is then definitely located, it is doing something -- that is, resting (which is one of the German grammar's ideas of doing something), and this throws the rain into the Dative case, and makes it dem Regen. However, this rain is not resting, but is doing something actively, -- it is falling -- to interfere with the bird, likely -- and this indicates movement, which has the effect of sliding it into the Accusative case and changing dem Regen into den Regen." Having completed the grammatical horoscope of this matter, I answer up confidently and state in German that the bird is staying in the blacksmith shop "wegen (on account of) den Regen." Then the teacher lets me softly down with the remark that whenever the word "wegen" drops into a sentence, it always throws that subject into the Genitive case, regardless of consequences -- and that therefore this bird stayed in the blacksmith shop "wegen des Regens."
N. B. -- I was informed, later, by a higher authority, that there was an "exception" which permits one to say "wegen den Regen" in certain peculiar and complex circumstances, but that this exception is not extended to anything but rain.

I'm fairly sure that's how most languages look to anyone who only learned relatively simple (grammatical wise) languages like English or even Japanese. The concept of things having genders must be very confusing, as well as the ridiculous number of verb tenses and so called exceptions. If I weren't familiar with romance languages I know I'd be confused as fuck.

The funny thing is that even though learning German is difficult and extremely boring, it's useless unless you want to read the untranslated version of a book or something, because everyone speaks English in Germany.
I'm the one you quoted, and as I already explained in that post I went there once on a student exchange program, which would supposedly improve our German, but the moment any kraut noticed we were foreigners they would start speaking English to us. Most of the group ended up not even speaking German once, it was kind of funny.

Most people can't, pretty simple. Waitresses being able to understand you and meeting English speakers in tourist places doesn't mean "everyone in Germany" is a master of English.

Someone should really remake that font. It's based on an old version of KanjiVG which had stroke order errors. They manually fixed them in the font instead of regenerating them. Plus, the script they used to generate it made mad inefficient glyphs.

This does the stroke data, but not the numbers. I could write a script to convert the numbers to outline data, but I'm too lazy.

How significant are the errors that you are aware of?

The font guy has fixed everything that's been sent to him, but only the joyo kanji have been checked IIRC. KanjiVG is the "upstream" of the stroke order data, and it's made those updates itself. It will be a lot better if we have a script that we can just kind of run whenever KanjiVG makes updates (e.g. fixing hyougai stroke orders, or adding new glyphs) instead of needing to make manual modifications.

Large file size of the font file or something?

Yeah, you're pretty much going to get that from most places. When they were organized for the CoR, the user responsible manually sorted series and renamed everything to be consistent, at least with all the manga I've downloaded and what little of the image scans of light novels I have. Most uploaders of torrents and direct download sites probably just reup from where they grabbed it, chucking everything in a new archive before putting it online. That's probably why you can end up with so many seemingly randomly arranged rar folders from batches downloaded from nyaa.

Is this something I should be concerned with if I am using these images/font to practice kanji production in Anki?
that image
Sorry I'm not really sure what I am looking at but I'll take your word for it that it is inefficient.

Hmm, well fuck me, maybe I'm retarded and not doing it right.
Where is your font file saved on your device and which settings in Ankidroid are you using to get the fonts to show correctly? I tried saving the font file to the fonts folder in the root directory for Ankidroid and even after selecting it as the default font, it didn't show up. Other more exotic fonts, such as those canon textbook style fonts have worked fine doing exactly this, but for some reason the stroke orders font just doesn't play nice on my devices.

Well, there's definitely a structure in the archives but it just takes time to unpack, especially on my old computer.
But anyway, I'm glad I found the raws relatively easy.

Now I just gotta focus on learning this language.

Yeah it's just default, with kanji fix installed

Full path for me is
A0001\内部ストレージ\AnkiDroid\fonts\KanjiStrokeOrders.ttf

Sorry I'm not really sure what I am looking at but I'll take your word for it that it is inefficient.
I think the problem is how many x's there are considering how straight all the lines are. I'm guessing each of those x's is a plotted point that the font renderer has to read and make sense of in relation to all the other plotted points, and there are obviously way more than there needs to be.

Don't know what problems that would cause though. Maybe slow rendering times on slow computers? I might be completely wrong altogether in my guess anyway.

Just read this, works perfectly for me.

No need for root, like this guy claims.

From that entire post you isolated that? I guess shitposting is what some fags love to do at the end of a thread.

My file path is the same.
I've tried exactly that, maybe it is something to do with my device in particular and the vender. If worse comes to worse I can always do a factory reset.

Slow rendering and huge filesize, basically.

Plus glitches on buggy text renderers.

Make sure your deck is set up correctly and without typos. In my case I use
<span style="font-size: 120px;font-family: KanjiStrokeOrders;">{{Expression}}</span>

Also try checking all this shit
https://github.com/ankidroid/Anki-Android/wiki/FAQ#i-followed-the-instructions-in-the-manual-but-i-still-cant-get-my-custom-font-to-work most importantly whether "fetch media on sync" is enabled.

Oh, okay then. My computer is pretty decent so I've never noticed it.

My setup was
span style="font-size: 115px;font-family: KanjiStrokeOrders;">{{kanji}}</span>

Tried all of that multiple times. Might end up doing a factory reset and trying from scratch of just continue to use the deck with the stroke orders font as embedded images. Thanks anyway, user.

Well you could try googling around with your os + custom fonts or your mobile phone model + custom fonts to see if there's a problem with your phone. Good luck

You say so, but the manual recomends to use

@font-face { font-family: myfont; src: url('_arial.ttf'); }

.mystyle1 {
font-family: myfont;
}

in the Styling section (middle field)

and then

<div class=mystyle1>{{Field}}</div>

on back / front (however you want to use it)

From your post you did something completely different. I had the same problem and following manual word for word fixed it.

I'm loving the dojg deck. SRS was just what I needed to stop mixing shit up (による、によって、にとって come to mind)

replace '_arial.ttf' with '_KanjiStrokeOrders.ttf' obviously (or whatever name you used, just start name with _ )

For what it's worth user Core 5k includes these as words.

Still haven't gotten around to turning the deck into something other than a pure rip of the dictionary, but it's good enough for me for now.

Definitely. Studying Japanese actually brought me out of a bout of depression I had a while ago. I've more and more begun to feel like this is a waste of time, though. But I guess it's just a matter of not spending way too much time on it. It's still satisfying getting better at Japanese.

I'll go jerk off to some doujin I think

You need compelling content. Do you have a favorite manga or anime that you only read or watched translated?
