>>100127001
I'm making up that statement, or the fact that it's false? In the former case, there was a popular pasta floating around /a/ and /jp/ until recently about people not knowing how to use sage correctly etc. and many people seemed to believe it, and in the latter case I can assure you that sage is in fact used when they want to express their hatred for the thread (ie, as a downvote as per the classic saying, I don't go to reddit though).

Well yeah, but I mean it isn't really a euphemism in the same way bulge isn't really a euphemism.
"Bulge" isn't really used to mean penis, it just means bulge, because your penis literally bulges out. Whereas if you call your penis your stick, it is a euphemism because your penis is not a stick.

Hey, how would you say "I don't know what this is"? The reason this confuses me is that I know it's possible to say things like, for random example:

これはいいか、分からない

Though the series だか never occurs in the language as far as I know, so you can't say something like:

これは何だか、分からない

But I know that you can say things like, I think:

これは事実なのか分からない
これは事実かどうか分からない

But those are slightly different sorts of things. I don't know if what I'm trying to say must become 何なのか分からない or if there's a better way. Perhaps this is a thing which does not do well with 1 to 1 translation and is better expressed differently.
>>
>>100133831
>これは何だか、分からない
Use that
>>
>>100133988
I'm suspicious because I've never heard that ever in several years of Japanese study and animu watching. That doesn't mean it doesn't exist but I haven't noticed if it does.
>>
>>100133831
知らない子ですね
>>
>>100134091
これは何なのか分からない is indeed the best way.
>>
>>100132735
The more I read that thread the more I realize that no matter how many years I spend studying I will sound like a retard if I speak to someone in Japanese.
>>
>>100134091
How have you not heard 何が何だか分からない or something similar a single time in several years? Googling "なんだかわからない" returns plenty of results as well.
>>
>>100133831
I'm pretty sure 何だか is the impolite 何ですか
>>
>>100134287
It doesn't work alone.

>>100134331
Keep studying.
>>
卜ト
>>
>>100134387
What do you mean it doesn't work alone?
>>
>>100134287
I've encountered things -like- it but not exactly it, making me suspicious. The google results get a shitload of 何が何だか which is kind of a set idiom, and I'm not sure the fact that it exists in one set expression makes it universally grammatical. Shit is weird sometimes.
>>
>>100134418
nice try but i learned about 卜部 from a game
>>
>>100134475
I mean just because "何が何だかわからない" is natural doesn't mean "これがなんだかわからない" to mean what you want it to mean.

More specifically, in that situation なんだか sounds like it means なんか
>>
>>100134551
卜部 (とぶ)
>>
>>100134605
何だか itself is a set adverbial expression as well, maybe that fact causes that same string of things to be avoided in other contexts to prevent ambiguity, or maybe the few expressions that contain だか are sort of preserved archaisms which are no longer productive patterns in the grammar.
>>
What does the つ do at the end of a sentence?
>>
>>100134747
Context
>>
>>100134387

これがなんだ works but only as a question

Dunno, I was looking through some manga and saw it at places where it didn't make much sense to me.

And I just saw it again in my book. Character A was telling character B that he had a present for him and B was like

>えつ、なんですか

If he is surprised, wouldn't it be わ or just え?
>>
>>100135219

>>100135318

>>100135367

If I somehow finish core10k (along with enough tae kim to understand grammar), will I be able to read detective conan?

This is an absolute beginner question but I'm learning the kana right now. Would there really be much of a benefit (considering the tradeoff of time) in writing out multiple times and learning the stroke order of each kana, vocab and kanji? Or is that just wasting a hell of a lot of time for something that doesn't matter too much and I'll just pick it up later?
>>
>>100136241
Write the kana if you want, it won't take you much time
But don't bother writing out kanji unless you plan on actually writing them later for whatever purpose.
>>
>>100136180
Make sure to finish all of coreplus before you try reading anything. You wouldn't want to have to look something up, it's a pain in the ass.

Then enjoy not being able to recognize handwriting.
>>
>>100136457
It really is. I hate having to look up so many words while reading. I hope I get to a point where having to look up words is a rare occurrence.
>>
>>100136790
You recognize handwriting by learning to read handwriting, not by writing kanji
>>
>>100136241
In my experience, writing the kana/kanji I have trouble with helps me to become familiar with the minute details that make them up. And if you do write them, you'll want to pay attention to stroke order.
>>
>>100136353
I find writing the Kanji to help a great deal in memorizing it. not like it as a big deal anyways, after a while you catch on to the patterns and know the stroke order by heart. then it's just mixing and matching shit.
>>
>>100136875
If you write kanji you notice things like when you write 細かい it can look like 糸田かい and won't bitch when you see it, like some people were doing in past threads.
>>
>>100136241
Kanji are the most rewarding part of the language for me. I love swearing off horizontal writing for a day and filling up fax paper rolls with muh chinese characters.
>>
>>100137069
If you read handwriting you'll notice the same things.
>>
>>100137069
And you can do the same if you just learn the kanji by the radicals like normal people do
>>
>>100137069
You can still bitch because 細かい isn't supposed to look like 糸田かい, because then it is 糸田かい. The size is important.

The わ particle is said to be exclusively feminine by all guides. I saw someone once say that it is used by males as well, but hadn't noticed an example of it, until this video:

http://youtu.be/G7VP-AnVnYs

Unless this is actually "忘れてたは?", though I don't think it is. It doesn't sound like a question.

Is the わ particle usable as a non-feminine speaker?
>>
>>100139209
Yes.
>>
>>100139275
How long did it take you to learn them?
>>
>>100134237
This is true to begin with. Early in the piece I knew I was being made fun of. You just have to suck it up and keep on trying and eventually you can sound almost like anybody else.
>>
>>100139228
he's saying "忘れてたか?"
And you generally don't want to use わ as a male unless you're purposefuly trying to be a trap or a faggot
>>
>>100139228
guys do say it.

what the internet has to say about gendered language is incredibly exaggerated.
>>
>>100138850
>>100138878
>分かりたいand 知りたい
I was thinking maybe 知りたい had the connotation of "Do you want to know (even though there is no need for you to know)?". Basically, this knowledge is unnecessary because its none of your business and this knowledge has no benefit to you.

>>100138850
Both verbs are the same in English literally, but each has a slightly different meaning.

For example, if your teacher asked a question you didn't know. You would say 分かりません instead of 知りません. 知りません is very rude to the teacher.
>>
>>100139332
I don't know? If I were using KD there would be Kanji such as push, oil, rain, plate, ship, clothes, etc that I wouldn't have learned yet.
>>
>>100139400

Can't hear か in that at all.

Is the line misspoken, or is my ear still horribly untrained?
>>
>>100139228
Yes, but it doesn't mean the same thing as the feminine わ.

Or rather, the feminine わ is pretty much never used outside of anime/fiction. The masculine wa is a bit hard to explain though.

>>100139400
No. Never post again.
>>
>>100139464
Eh, it's not that hard to make out. You're talking about the line at the very beginning of the clip, right?

>>100139479
>No. Never post again.

Why?
>>
>>100139537

>You're talking about the line at the very beginning of the clip, right?

Yes.

Sounds exactly like わ.
>>
>>100139537
>Why?
Because you're wrong.
>>
>>100139607
It's definitely か. I guess you need some more practice.

>>100139610
About what exactly?
>>
>>100139610
But a male using the わ particle is a strong indication that they are a faggot.
>>
>>100139435
I don't know where you heard that connotation but I've never heard of it. Tae Kim mentions using 分かった too often can be taken as rude though.

>Both verbs are the same
Its different to know something than to understand it.
Example: you know your gf is mad at you, but you don't understand why.
>on /a/ and having a gf
>>
>>100139651
>About what exactly?
Everything you fucking retard. It doesn't even make sense as a question in the clip. Watch the next couple sentences.


>>100139668
Only certain ways of using it.


忘れてたわ
Oh I'd forgotten
何を?
About what?
ほら、いつかの、お前がなんでも聞いてくれるっつーやつ
You know, that promise you made at some point to do one thing that I tell you, whatever it is.
>>
>>100139760
Are you dumb? He doesn't say わ. The intonation would make absolutely zero sense if he did, not to mention that males don't really ever use that particle. Also it makes perfect sense that he says か

>Did you forget?
>Forget what?
>You know, etc etc

That "ほら" would make no sense if he wasn't asking her a question to begin with.

1 主に女性が用いて、軽い決意や主張を表す。「もう忘れてしまった―」「わたしも出席する―」
2 驚き・感動・詠嘆の意を表す。「まあ、きれいだ―」「水は出ない―、電気は止まる―で、さんざんな目にあった」「散る―散る―、まるで木の葉の乱舞だ」

So the second meaning is the one used by males, to express surprise, excitement or admiration.
In addition, in Kansai-ben わ is usually used in place of よ
>>
>>100139893
>The intonation would make absolutely zero sense if he did
Except that the masculine わ is falling intonation, and if you seriously haven't seen it (it's pretty common) you need to read/watch more stuff.
>>
>>100139893
It goes lower at the end, and you think that intonation indicates it's a question? You're too retarded for words.

No, sorry. I'm not hearing it. If you want me to believe you you're going to have to provide video evidence of a male using わ in this way.

Also the intonation is perfectly suited for a question, don't see what the problem is there.

>>100139990
>So the second meaning is the one used by males, to express surprise, excitement or admiration.
Your dictionary translations of 感動 and 感嘆 distort the meaning of わ quite a bit. I think 感嘆 as exasperation is more accurate, for example.

>>
>>100140192
Actually, nevermind. Listening to it again I'm completely and utterly certain that I'm right. There is literally no way that he says わ. He says か, however his sort of nasally voice makes it sound a bit like が. That's all. I have no idea how you even got the idea that he was saying わ, you must have some problems with your hearing.

I got it wrong before because I lacked context as to how exactly he pronounces his かs and がs but there was one just slightly before the part in the video and that changed my perception. I agree that he's probably not asking a question, though.

There's still no way that what he's saying is わ, however
>>
>>100140548

I don't think you're trying to troll, but you really need to just accept that you're wrong here.

It takes a while to become accustomed to Japanese phonetics, especially if your familiar language(s) isn't similar. Combined with that effect which makes you hear what you think is there, rather than what is actually there, if the sound quality isn't perfect.

Why are you so angry? Is it because I said "faggot" earlier and that guys don't use わ and you're some kind of social justice warrior and/or woman? I can't think of any other reason.

Regardless, it's very true that guys usually don't use わ and I've consumed a hell of a lot of Japanese media over the past two years, likely more than you. Though I don't need to prove myself to you.

Either way this is just a matter of listening comprehension, there's no way he's saying わ in that particular example. Call over a jap from /int/ or something and he'll agree.

My ability is extremely sporadic, as methods were nowhere near as rigorous when I started and I am retarded at learning anything, so its very difficult to actually assign a level, due to some parts being extremely high level, but there existing massive gaps in my knowledge.

I can assure you that you don't suddenly "become fluent" though. You just find something that couldn't be understood before is now understandable, and eventually the amount on non-understandable stuff becomes insignificantly small. Even in your native language, there are still many words and phrases that you don't know, but you tend to ignore (and eventually learn and start hearing it everywhere).

If you put me in Japan, I wouldn't struggle too much, if that any way of measuring it, but equally, I can't say I'd understand everything around myself, either. My experience is by no means typical.

Oh, and if the guy who claims that anime dude isn't saying わ in that clip is still here, I'd just like to inform you that you are in fact wrong, sir. 「知らんわ」、「忘れたわ」、「分からんわ」and other similar expressions are commonly used by males in Japan, regardless of dialect and shit.
>>
>>100143013
It might be influenced, but the わ in standard dialect is definitely different than the よ in standard dialect. I don't know real kansai that well, but if the kansai わ matches with the standard よ then the two わs are quite different.

>>100143050
Neah, I realized you're probably the guy from a while ago that posted some anime clip asking for help and then did the same shit you did today, refusing to listen to multiple people telling you that you were wrong.

They don't need a captcha because they just outright block all the countries where spam comes from. The captcha isn't to prevent shitposting, and doesn't prevent shitposting.
>>
>>100145562

Bear in mind that that considers obvious derivations to be completely separate words, for example:

見る = to see
見える = to be seen
見え = display
見 = a viewing

Etc. They're very obvious derivations, and knowing one means you'll understand the others in context.

Even English, with its unusually high words count, very well read adults rarely know more than 25k words.

Excluding specialist language, 10k words in Japanese probably covers almost all non-specialist language that one will encounter frequently, with fluent adults knowing significantly less than 20k, let alone children.

Well, by the way that pretty much all languages are used, getting most(meaning 50%+) is usually very easy. The last 10-20% is usually the hard part. I've heard that understanding less than 95-97% makes things uncomfortable to read.

>来った

>>
>>100146554

Probably not, due to the inefficiency of teaching obvious things.

Prepare to be taught that ペン means "pen", and words of the same root that follow a consistent pattern, eg: 上げる, 上がる. Not to mention words which are identical, for instance 持つ as "to have", and 持つ as "to last", because apparently saying these are different words is better than just listing both usages.

I'd say it is better to make your own deck, and add cards of things you encounter, as if you add 10k cards, you've very likely covered everything you need in the context you use the language.

>>100147001

I meant "20k" if variations are counted as new words, effectively double Core10k.
>>
>>100147122
Pretty sure you're right, looking at it. This is what I get for not actually studying grammar - I just understood the sentence without looking at each part individually, so that didn't matter to me. I would have picked up on that had I actually cared to check the grammar.

>ネンオシャチエブクトウバシメ
I know this is used as a checklist for motorcycles, but what does it actually mean? Or is it total nonsense?

If you think you can memorize a list of that size and be good to go, I think you might be surprised. Learning a language requires constant learning, especially from the sources that you're interested in.

Why futaba never appear in anime/manga/eroge?
It is always 2ch or some textboard, but never an imageboard.
>>
>>100149314
I don't really think so. The catalog sucks, the eroge thread is mostly image spam with little discussion. I'd still use it if I could post there, but it's not really worth it otherwise.

And anyone can post on 2ch if they pay a little bit. It's like $20 for 3 years. Far cheaper than a 4chan pass.

What boards did you look at? I don't go into any eroge threads, but it's not like most eroge/VN discussion you see anywhere is good anyways. Don't see what's wrong with the catalog. Makes everything quite easy to see without scrolling. You probably went into a board that isn't on 虹裏, or is and is just very sparsely populated, because I don't see anything that could be considered image span.

By 2000 yen or whatever it is worth of Moritapo points. It costs 5000 I think to get a year of 2ch posting through the website. Your moritapo decay slowly if you don't use them, but iirc it's slow enough that you can still buy three years worth.
There's also the ● shit but I think most people avoid that after the big security leak.

Well if you understood what he was saying then you (at the very least) aren't as bad as me. I understood 「初めに少女だけど汁の味を試す」 and sorta understood 「女になる」 but that was it. I could guess what was being said but I don't consider that as understanding it at all.

I really don't consider myself good enough at Japanese to be doing that yet, but I do think it should have been 中毒させられた or something, and I'd probably use like 試してから. The whole thing is a bit awkward, maybe changing it to like 純粋な少女 at first and then using some more degrading term at the end would make it sound more like you were saying something.

Eh I dunno, I gotta go read more eroge.

The answer is that を isn't "with" おいしい. Your question makes no sense. Not to mention >>100163947 explained the pattern.
>>
>>100164488
Can't be though, because it's in というのは for. I feel like the sentence must have been written by a non-native in the first place.
>>
>>100166043
No, the の is nominalizing という. Just because というのは has a dictionary entry doesn't mean it's all one unit every time you see it. "Why do we describe alcohol as delicious". It's not complicated.
>>
>>100163947
Oh so it's some set phrase, thanks
>>
>>100166845
Not really, you can just say xを言う to mean "speak of x" (of course, it could also mean "say x"). と is then just a quote added on to that. If thinking of it as a "set phrase" helps, that's fine, but it's elastic and will not always appear exactly in that form.
>>
>>100166932
well suppose it's logical in a way anyway once one thinks about it, in that iu is the verb wo is using to modify the noun
