Apprendre les Kanji (Méthode Heisig/Maniette)
New in the Study pages: Example Words!8 April 2014 You can now see a selection of "priority" entries from JMdict (Japanese-Multilingual Dictionary) on any given character's Study page. You can also use the shortcut key D to view a selection of sample words during flashcard reviews (note these aren't optimized for mobile display, yet).

Japanese "adjectives" [Back to the main Japanese page] Why do I write "adjectives" in quotes for this chapter? Because your mind has a preset idea of what an adjective is-- based on how English uses words called adjectives to modify nouns-- and the Japanese adjective is not quite the same. It is indeed a class of words that modifies nouns, but it does so in a different way than the corresponding class in English.

Tumbleweed's Resources for Learning Japanese Okay, here's a familiar scenario... For whatever reason, you've taken up the study of the Japanese language.
