RE: "I'm sure ticked off at Nintendo now!"
Finally... someone gave a decent answer!
Btw, I attempted to rep you (positively) for that post; however the forum suggested that I already gave you rep, so prevented me from doing so, which I thought odd, since I see no evidence of that in your profile. o_0 Oh well, I did try...
But on a side note... why that thread still continued after that post suggests to me that certain members are now more concerned with entertaining themselves than making valid points. For that reason I haven't added to that thread myself (which would contradict my agreement with your post in the first place), especially since imo you've already stated what needed to be said long before its age.
I'm not good with closing convos, so I'll just say liked your post... and happy AFing!
wolfg~!!! How've you been :3 I remember you from the older AF ^^
My name is Wulf but i am a vampire. May the wolves and vampires live in peace one day.
hmm do i know you from somewhere?
I have a strange linguistics question. Do you know if there is a term for the process changing a clause's verb to "to be" by appropriately adjusting the predicate?
For example, changing "Sam eats turkey." to "Sam is one who eats turkey."
Since it can be useful for analyzing logical syllogisms, I was wondering if it had a term. Maybe not.
Hey girl how have you been? Anything new going on with you?
Today my bf Roger and I are going to hangout today and he is staying all night. On Thanksgiving I am going to be with him and his family for Thanksgiving! Then him and I are just going to hangout all weekend!
I have a vocab ranging from 2.8k~3.8k words. What would you suggest using as a main listening tool? I hope I can get my listening up to par with my reading skill.
Actually, I don't have any problem with Kanji, writing, or even learning vocabulary so much.
So far most of my practice has been written so I'll look up works or ask the person for the meaning. My brain has time to parse sentences (it's good with patterns) when I don't reflexively understand, so rarely do I not end up understanding the sentence.
What I'm wondering about is how to properly listen. Let's say I understand 20% of what I hear on reflex, 40% of it I'd understand if I could rehear it a few times, and the rest I couldn't really claim to understand due to vocab/idiom or some other listening problem. The rest must be guessed from visual context.
What do I do? Should I replay a dialog to get a better understanding, should I replay the whole episode to get a better understanding, or should I just go onto the next episode? It's some what of a strange question, but it has been bugging me.
You can talk to me about linguistics all day and I would not get bored.
Actually, I'm somewhat slow at English in listening and reading comprehension, so I've been a bit worried. I'm going to keep persisting either way though. If you have any suggestions I wouldn't mind. It is somewhat of an irony that I suck at language so much and yet I have the interest in linguistics that I have. I think it's because there is a logical side to language which I admire, but there's also a intuitionist side that really kicks me in the balls.
Anyway, I'm impressed. I knew you knew some Japanese, but was unsure of the level. I'd love to practice with you were I to get the opportunity.
That's impressive. I suck at it. Well, I can have decent message conversations with other Japanese IF kanji is used, but my speaking and hearing ability sucks. Recently I've been practicing conversation with a Japanese person so hopefully I'll get better.
How did you invest your time into practicing it? Like did you have an average X hours a day for months/years?
