Re: Looking to learn Japanese(日本語)


I find British English better because it is the more refined form of the language, kind of like how Tokyo Japanese is more refined that the Osaka dialect.

The Teach Yourself series is excellent. I know they have a Teach Yourself: Beginner's Japanese Script or something like that. I am pretty sure it covers Kana.

Re: Looking to learn Japanese(日本語)


Continuing from the Japanese Katakana discussion...

I thought I shared this link, but I guess not.

http://www.omniglot.com

Specifically,

http://www.omniglot.com/writing/japanese_katakana.htm


And while you're there, don't forget to check out the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean main pages.

...see? I'm right and you're all wrong. emoticon

Re: Looking to learn Japanese(日本語)


It still seems that since its creation, Katakana was used mostly for foreign loan words. But they also have some seperate syllables unique to Katakana.

Re: Looking to learn Japanese(日本語)


Mitsuwa's commercial this morning advertised a 新人学おめでとうフィア! This is for their Costa Mesa store only and lasts until Sunday April 11. Pictured in the ad were a bunch of Japanese/English dictionaries.

posticon Japanese Drama Forum w/ Glosses


The new “Jump to …” forum feature now has an entry that displays the Japanese drama and anime sections with glosses (pop-up translations) for the Japanese characters.

[It uses the POPjisyo.com service. Interestingly, if you go to POPjisyo.com and select the German pop-ups, that doesn't have any problem with the katakana for “Water Boys”, whereas the pop-ups into English mistranslate it horribly.]

Re: Looking to learn Japanese(日本語)


So in German it works and not in English?

Kinda like when you translate something from Japanese to English it is not accurate, and when you do the opposite it isl.

Re: Looking to learn Japanese(日本語)


Any language is usually harder to translate into English than back into its original language.

Re: Looking to learn Japanese(日本語)


People with kids trying to learn very basic Japanese might want to check out HIRAGANA Song, a song for learning (romanized) hiragana. class blockquote Triple Lei wrote:

You don't seriously expect to find a site with stroke orders for 2,000+ characters, do you?
http://www.zonmal.com/ has a character dictionary with stroke orders for many characters along with Korean and English definitions and Chinese pinyin. (Note that it's actually a hanja dictionary rather than a kanji dictionary, so it doesn't include kokuji.) For example, try copying and pasting xml:lang ja-JP into the top left input area.
