Hey guys, is there a script that could transliterate Tae Kim's guide into full romanji? I want to learn grammar before I bother with kanas and kanjis so I can start watching anime and read before I start with the awful grind.

Elijah Peterson

Well shit how do I pick then. Is there something like egs or vndb

I'm coming back to try again after a little more than half a year, looking for some advice

For Anki, it recommends not resetting a deck after coming back because there will inevitably be cards you remember even if the process is slow. However after this long is it worth following that advice or would it be faster to just restart the deck? I was around 700 cards in.

Nathaniel Reyes

create a new profile (don't delete the old one yet)
add the deck you were doing before
set new cards to 700
make a strong cup of coffee
force your way through the new cards

Now, depending on your performance, you may decided to:
(if you remembered quite a lot of cards and/or easily relearned the ones you forgot after having your memory refreshed) return to your old profile the next day
(if you remembered very little) start a new profile and begin again from scratch

Alternatively, you can just say "fuck it" and just start a mining deck instead (assuming you were using a pre-made deck like Core6K before).

Just trying the deck out again makes me think fully resetting is not what I should now. Also, yes it's the standard 6k deck though I had kanji radical deck I was working through and a general kanji deck I had began but for less than a week.

For another method, what about halting new cards or heavily limiting them and increasing reviews for a few weeks?

Gabriel Kelly

It means you should re-evaluate your perception regarding the use of various board functions, such as, but not limited to, the quote (green text) and spoiler function (black box).

Nicholas Cox

Yeah, it's probably a good idea to turn off new cards for a few days while you get back into the swing of things.

As for increasing reviews, you should have already set your max reviews/day setting to the maximum level (9999).

Jeremiah Rodriguez
Jeremiah Rodriguez

hi, currently in the process of learning hiragana as well as a bit of grammar. At what point do you start to learn words with the characters you've learned? I'm not too eager or in a rush to get to that point I just want a better understanding of what happens and when and the process of learning.

Lincoln Gomez

After you memorized all of the kana and start the core anki deck, so about 3 days in.

Is there any way to view the edit history of the guide? I'm curious to see how its changed since it was made.

Juan Wright

What's the methodology behind that? Do you just study as much as you feel like with that many reviews?

Kayden Collins

Evading bans is against the rules.

Caleb Watson

So is your paranoid shitposting.

Jackson Wilson
Jackson Wilson

If you don't have your reviews set to (practically) unlimited, you will interfere with the spaced repetition system which Anki employs since it won't be able to show you cards when they are due if there are too many other cards due on the same day.

Jacob Hall
Jacob Hall

thank you, i'm looking through anki right now, which decks should I use in the future?

Try 詰め合わせ in the CoR. It's only text formats. Though I don't know if KnT is there it probably will be, as it's a pretty popular shit.

Mason Martinez

Not there unfortunately. Neither is 終末. Both CoR and nyaa is pretty lacking from what I can tell.

Jose Hernandez

You need to give adequate context if you're going to ask a question like this.

Your translation is more or less correct, it's just an impressive-sounding title the manga artist gave himself because he's proud of churning out large numbers of gag characters.

Mason Taylor
Mason Taylor

Is there any language proficiency test that's either fully in kanas/romanji, or if it's an online one lets you use a text hooker? I've been reading for 2 years and I'm practically fluent and can understand anything, but never bothered to learn the kanjis.

Social Choice and Individual Value's main goal is to convey Arrow's impossibility theorem, which states that a group of people cannot possibly vote in a unified, logical manner. It's an essential read for anyone intended to seriously defend democracy.

Kino no Tabi

If you want an example, this is the very beginning:

そして暗闇《くらやみ》が生まれた。
 まったく光のない。d
 月も星も見えない。
 緩やかな風で森がざわめく音だけが、闇を飾るように聞こえてくる。
「そうだなあ……。なんとなく、だけれどね……」
 ふいに人間の話す声が聞こえた。少年のような、そして少し高い声だ。
「なんとなく、だけれど?」
 別の声が発言を促すように聞いた。さらに若い感じのする、男の子のような声だった。
 ほんの少し静寂《せいじゃく》があって、最初に聞こえた声が静かに語り出した。まるで自分に言い聞かすような、誰《だれ》もいないところへ向かって喋《しゃべ》るような口調だった

Literally easier to comprehend than a nukige about some guy moving in to live with a bunch of girls..

Of course, that's what I'm doing.
But I don't know if that's really efficient: I have forgotten a lot (actually, most of those, it's a deck I completely abandoned quite some time ago, I'm still doing reps, but with another one), and I'm afraid that, by the time I catch up with everything, I will already have forgotten some of the first reps I did when I began to study this deck again.

Welcome to club.

At the very least I can justify by saying that I can read 60-70% of what I want easily so Anki isn't vital anymore, but still, I really need to get back on it.

Julian Baker

Convert it to txt
With what? Using Calibre fucks up the furigana formatting, which means it reads like shit when converted .txt and JNovel can't do anything about it.

Juan Campbell

So what torrent sites and such do the Japanese use for LNs etc?

Ayden Scott
Ayden Scott

Not him, IIRC ぬ is the same thing as ない, you can swap them and it means the same things, ぬ is just an archaic form.

Well, I say "archaic" only because everyone else does. It is far less archaic than something like "['twas]" in English and actually comes up all the time.

Brayden Parker
Brayden Parker

Convert to htmlz, rename file to zip, extract, read with firefox and rikai. Perfect furigana that doesn't fucks with rikai.

You only use jnovel formatter with aozora bunko formatted books, nothing else.

Ethan Brown
Ethan Brown

Try this for firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/lucifox/?src=search
It's rotates everything so you read it left to right, and for some reason rikaisama only half works (highlights text, no definitions or export) but it has furigana.

What don't you get, famalam. They're pointing out how question words + か or も interact with particles. So, どこも is "everywhere/nowhere" for example, but if you want to say "I went nowhere", you have to split it up and say どこにも行った, which you on the other hand don't do for どこか

Not really unless you are a programmer. The developer has been made aware of the issue in the past but he doesn't care. Japanese doesn't seem to be on his priorities list.

It is recommended that you have a Tae Kim level of grammar and a vocab base of the 2000 most common words before you start reading.
Is this consistent with your experience?

Did you start reading before or after completing Core2K?

Tyler Morris
Tyler Morris

My VNR doesn't catch the whole displayed line for a reason, notably missing out on the hiragana

What do

Ryder Watson
Ryder Watson

Get started on {Tae Kim, Genki, Japanese the Manga Way} while you download Anki and work on {Core6k, RtK}

Jason Walker
Jason Walker

The sooner you start the more vocab you need to look up. You can start whatever you want to read 200 words into 2k if you want to, just be prepared to look up a shitload.

2k is the recommended point because that's when the deck's structure has a slight shift, going over some basic words' slightly different readings/meanings.

Jordan Jackson

Have a look at the A Dictionary of Intermediate Grammar, page 315 (ぬ). Alternatively, use the DoJG Anki deck, which has every main entry of each volume, with notes. Pic related is a stitched together example of said card. The deck will differ from person to person in terms of general style, colouration, etc. but the image is enough to get an idea of the general layout.

Joseph Bell
Joseph Bell

There's no need to perfect Tae Kim level grammar, but you should at least read through all of it once so you can recognize grammar points when you encounter them while reading. As for the vocab, you can begin earlier if you want to, but if you do I really recommend you pick up something that has furigana or a vocabulary list like Yotsuba.

Daniel Moore
Daniel Moore

Started reading yotsuba shortly after I learned kana and read like 10 chapters of tae kim.
It wasn't too hard, a decade of watching anime probably helped with figuring it out.

My experience has been to take whatever resources look good and learn my own way. Started reading alongside study when I felt like it, no idea if it was 2000 words into vocab study or 200 words; it was on whim. From memory I read through the first section of two of Kim's grammar guide on his site and dropped it in favour of the book Japanese: The Manga Way and the website based programme: Visualizing Japanese Grammar. By the time I'd read and watched through the aforementioned two resources I had already read through the first two volumes of よつばと!.

The guide has generic advice for learners but you've got to understand that the thread is for autodidacts and such people tend to go their own way in terms of personal study.

This is awful advice, if the guide user wrote this then he's an idiot and we should ignore his guide. You should be reading ASAP, basically as soon as you're capable of understanding what Yotsuba says.

Landon Bell

If the choice is between working through Tae Kim or whatever and reading I definitely think the former is better, to make sure you're at least aware of much of the basic grammar, if not necessarily in command of it. When you're done with Tae Kim though I agree you should start reading regardless of how far you've made it into Core.

Landon Thompson

Just looking for some clarification:

たばこ屋
I was under the impression that foreign words were generally written in katakana. Why is たばこ in hiragana?

Blake Cruz
Blake Cruz

In the longer run it's near meaningless whether or not you start reading a few weeks earlier or even six months earlier. Really, those new to language learning are probably not in the best position to throw around arbitrary ought statements. It could just as easily be stated that you should stop coming to these threads entirely after finding it and bookmarking the resource page.

Similar reason why to "kitchen" in English isn't written closer to the Hindi spelling. It really isn't considered foreign by this point in time.

I read about half of tae kim and never finished and started reading at about 500 words maybe. I don't think it's really a huge deal when you start. Just read until you get burnt out (which will happen quick in the beginning) and just keep trying over again and it gets better

Hello, complete beginner.

Depends what you call a particle. That's definitely way more than what you need to learn about before reading. Lots of those are easy enough to get from rikai-chan and a single example sentence.

Hudson Nguyen
Hudson Nguyen

Absolutely nothing. Your example is dumb. You're even more likely to make dumb misunderstandings with words you learn out of context, and reading a lot means you will fix whatever mistakes you do make much more quickly. VNs in particular with their voices lines mean you aren't gonna be misreading common words.

Justin Lee
Justin Lee

core has example sentences for context. Way to talk out of your ass when you haven't even seen a core deck in your life.

Brody Garcia
Brody Garcia

Yeah because 2000 artificial example sentences is totally comparable to seeing the word 50 times a day in different contexts you fucking dumbass.

Joshua Hill
Joshua Hill

So core2k is artificial, but I'm sure the random moege trash that you can read with 0 vocab has much more natural sounding language, like いやぁぁぁぁそこ見っちゃだめ and 先輩、いくうううう

Jordan Diaz
Jordan Diaz

That's definitely way more than what you need to learn about before reading.
Which ones would you say are the necessary ones?

Carson Jones
Carson Jones

all of them if you wanna learn japanese bōyo

Gabriel Jackson
Gabriel Jackson

I mean the necessary ones to learn before you start reading. The ones that you will almost immediately have to look up if you don't already know them, as opposed to the more obscure ones which you might not run into unless you're reading something a bit more difficult.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm obviously going to look things up when I don't understand them, but I'm just trying to get the raw essentials down so I can get to reading ASAP.

This isn't my first time trying to learn Japanese, so to save myself from reading through the entirety of Tae Kim again, I'm just trying to refresh my memory on the basic need-to-know stuff (this time using the DOJG as my source since I remember it having much better explanations than pretty much anything else).

Dude, I was still trying to read kana smoothly at that time. I knew some kanji sure, but no matter how much you practice it's going to take time. Six months is nothing for an entire fuck language. You can do it.

Jeremiah Murphy
Jeremiah Murphy

still struggling with kana after 6 months seems like a pretty extreme example

at 6 months in I probably had somewhere around 1800-1900 mature kanji cards in anki and there's no way I would make a mistake reading kana

I'm 7 months in now and I've finished a couple manga volumes and started reading an LN in that time. Although I can only read maybe six or seven pages an hour with a dictionary, probably twenty times slower than something in English at the same level of difficulty

Cooper Collins
Cooper Collins

I wouldn't say struggling to read kana, just still learning to read it smoothly and quickly. My point is that even after you "learn" Japanese it takes a long time to get good at it.

Never saw the panty vending machines, but once, when I was travelling by ferry from Osaka to Hokkaido, our ship stopped briefly around Sendai. I and several other passengers walked through an open field to a nearby grocery store to buy snacks, and there in the middle of this wide-open field with nothing else about, was this tiny, wooden shack. The shack was full of porno vending machines.

I will always remember fondly:

Look up 厠 or toilet depending on the language to get to the relevant bit.

It captures some of the charms of dimly-lit traditional Japanese architecture, and the process of it being altered or displaced by modern and Western features. As someone who enjoys dimly lit spaces more than the brightly lit spaces that are more common these days, I really enjoyed reading this.

that doesn't sound like it has much to do with storage space, how many books would you even need to cram into it to get even close to filling that up?

Matthew Adams

how did you manage to uncover this long lost ancient symbol

Brayden Wright
Brayden Wright

Oh wait, I was having a Kindle Fire, not just a regular Kindle. I'm using books that are collections of pictures and pdfs of scanned shit in addition to the lighter formats, so the thing does fill up really quickly (and I had around 13GB of storage). I don't have a convincing explanation for the performance-storage space relationship, it's just something I noticed over time. It could just be a result of long usage too. And restarting only helps temporarily.

Alexander Walker
Alexander Walker

Sounds like the kindle is doing something with the stored files (caching? data mining for ads? maintaining a database?), which gets more and more intensive as the device fills up with files.
It's piss-poor design which would be hardly adequate even coming out of a no-name Chinese reader, really a shamefur dispray for Amazon.

Not this guy, but I found a pretty good reference here, right down to the dictionary page where the character appears:
http://isobe2624.seesaa.net/category/24859494-1.html
広辞苑はどのページも4段になっているのだが、1,881 ページ目の2段目にはずいぶん興味深い項が載っていた。『つび』という読み方の漢字は3つ並んでおり、その最初に載っているのが、尸(シカバネ カンムリ)の下に朱という文字を書く「𡱖」という漢字であり、その解説には「陰門の古称。〈和名抄(ワミョウ ショウ)三 〉」とある。 更に「陰門」の項を引いたところ、「女子生殖器の外陰部」と明記してあった。

Web dictionaries I've tried seem to go only as far as having an entry for this character stating that it's not used in Japanese. So this guy is probably well-read in erotic fiction.

Oh, absolutely. It can frequently be very useful for remembering Japanese-origin words that would otherwise be a bitch.

One word that kept fucking me up was 古 (いにしえ). I kept misremembering it as いしにえ. I finally had to look up its origin and I haven't forgotten it since. It's:

「去ぬ」の連用形「いに」+ 過去助詞「き」の連体形「し」+ 場所・方向・時間を表す接尾「え(へ)」(This え is the same え as in 行方不明, BTW)

In other words: "Whence things have gone" = The past.

How? I mean, look at this:

 二人は子どもがいなかったので、シロというイヌをとてもかわいがっていました。
 ある日、シロが畑でほえました。

If the name シロ has already been introduced to the conversation in the first phrase why is が used in the second phrase? Did pic related lie to me?

Every situation is different.

I am in a very good position for that sort of work because I am very comfortable with formal, academic Japanese, I live in Japan and my wife teaches at a university, so I have contacts to exploit. Further, there are not that many people around here to compete with me for the work.

Contrast that with people wanting to translate video games, anime, or manga where the competition is immense and cutthroat. Or the situation in Canada, where English-French or French-English translation pays next to nothing because so many people are educated and fluent in both.

I live in Canada, so it's high in demand because even though the country is bilingual, not many people are simultaneous bilinguals (as in exposed and learning both languages equally from birth). The recall ability in a translator in much quicker in simultaneous bilinguals than in second language learners.

That ability does affect salary since speed is key.

Private, would certainly not say no to public though for the extra benefits.

I actually always had the skill but never considered working in the field, and suddenly it hit me that I should be doing this.

Have to say I've never been happier with what I do.

Oliver Davis
Oliver Davis

Well I know a lot of people who have spoken French primarily all their lives and yet can't write to save their lives, not just spelling or grammar but also word choice. Also if you learn a language only to be exposed to daily conversation and simple texts then obviously you won't be as good as if you were reading books. But learning a language from birth doesn't magically make you better at it, you just happen to have a jumpstart of n years at learning it (probably less efficiently than someone seriously challenging themselves while learning, but most people don't).

No, it's a direct object marker used with the transitive verb 孕む, "to be pregnant with, to contain, to hold". 一人ずつ is an adverbial phrase indicating that each fruit contain one beautiful child.

This is one of those times that the furigana isn't so much an actual, accepted reading as it is a reference, or explanation.

A fusa, normally written as 房 is a decorative tassel. A 流蘇 (https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%B5%81%E8%98%87) refers to a certain kind of body ornament, popular amongst Manchu women during the Qing dynasty.

In other words, the furigana ふさ is just helpfully explaining to the reader basically just what the fuck a 流蘇 is. That's all.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean. If by "do" you mean pressing Again, then yeah, sometimes it takes a while until I get the new cards. Don't think that's unusual though...

I also do 30 new cards a day with a break day here and there

Aiden Robinson
Aiden Robinson

Context or whatever you prefer. I know it sucks, but that's how it goes.
There are even compounds that have different readings, like 昨日 (kinou / sakujitsu) and 一昨日 (ototoi / issakujitsu).

One case I where I know about distinction is with 行く, which can be either "iku" and "yuku", and that the latter carries a literary tone. So if you see it written in poetry, it's probably yuku. If you see it casually, probably iku.

I find your percentages really concerning, and what's with these brown cards?

But oh well, maybe you just didn't have any experience with kanji before, so maybe it'll go down once you get used to a few characters.

Be sure to learn stroke order to facilitate your breaking down of the ideograms.

Parker Lee

I don't want to antagonize beginners, but ~50 % retention is concerning. You could check your true retention (https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/613684242) but I doubt it's any better.

Don't listen to music while doing Anki, don't do it when you're tired and don't constantly interrupt your session by checking Sup Forums.

You might want to put a day aside and just do a massive custom study -> review forgotten cards session or something, otherwise you'll always feel like you have holes in your progress.

Mature card correct rate doesn't actually correspond to learning progress though, it's mature card graduation count that does.

Mature card correct rate doesn't correspond to efficiency, either. Flunking the same 1000 cards every single day and having like one new mature every day will still have you wasting almost all of your time for a very small number of newly graduated mature cards, and youre mature correct rate can still be 100%.

It's inappropriate to insist on telling someone they've got something wrong when your standards aren't objective either.
