[promo] If you are learning Lojban, or want to speak a machine-parsable constructed language, please help this Area 51 proposal come to life: Lojban Language & Usage. Lojbanists, e'o ko sidju


I'm a software engineer. One of the rare species who use Python at work in Japan and also telecommute.

Currently I'm working on:

  • Becoming fluent in Lojban and also creating learning tools along the way
  • Becoming a lucid dreamer

I have lived in Massachusetts, Kyoto, Fukuoka and Tokyo.

comment How to make sense of this construct - “<名詞>、それは<名詞句>”
Ah, that explains the slight difference in emphasis I felt between the left dislocation examples and the ...、それは... sentences. Regarding 体言止め, inverting the order is not essential; just dropping the final particle(s) of sentences like ..<名詞>だ / ..<名詞>する will do. Here's a blog article consisting entirely of 体言止め.

In case we had different things in mind: I was thinking of something like this (moving that section completely to this answer). Otherwise, I'm going to start the same argument over there :D

Checking out... んー, I think the section "About 覚える and 見覚える" belongs to this answer.

Yes, you can delete your answer, but it's up to you to decide. This question on meta "Deleting downvoted answer?" looks relevant. In general, keep it if you feel the information it provides is correct. ("meta" is a place to ask questions about how to use this site.) Hope that helps.

Yay, a consensus! Yes, it's ok and I would go that route too. There'll be a checkbox titled "Answer your own question" when adding a question, which lets you post an answer at the same time. If I were you, I'd try to think back to the time when you first wondered about "remembrance and recall" and pose it as a question.

comment What is the difference between 覚える and 見覚える?
Thx for your view and I'm ready to agree to disagree, but let me put it in a constructive way: by moving the "覚えるvs思い出す" part to an independent Q&A, 1. People already know about it don't have to read that part to get to the answer. 2. It becomes obvious which question to look at when you're searching for "覚えるvs思い出す". 3. Also, you can post a link to the Q&A as a comment to this question (like this): it's more prominent and useful than being in an answer. Overall, it improves the structure of this site.

I think most of this answer do not directly answer the question. I suggest posting them as a different Q&A on this site. (It's encouraged to share your knowledge through self-answering.)
