comment Strange Japanese Character
I tried looking up しょわー but I couldn't find it. I wonder if there's a dictionary of onomatopoeia with sounds like this learners could use when they're missing from regular dictionaries.

@Kronpas If you look up the phrase 口を利く, I bet it won't be listed as archaic.

comment break down ~いていいと思ってる
@Kronpas Probably what happened is the copy-and-paste didn't have any way to represent き as furigana, so it unfortunately got turned into a regular character.

comment Using SRS Flashcards, should I test my onyomi or kunyomi?
Learning vocabulary will be more immediately useful. But if you're going to memorize the readings, you'll need to learn vocabulary for each one so you know when to use them. Learning them as a list out of context will just be confusing.

comment why isn't “そなわち” in dictionaries? what does it mean?
Moderators are just people who try to help the site function the way it's supposed to. Although I have a ♦ diamond next to my name (indicating that I'm a moderator), there are other users on the site who are more knowledgeable than me but don't have ♦ diamonds :-)

revised It seems that 渡る is categorized as 自動詞 (intransitive verb), yet it is frequently used with を. Why?

@EiríkrÚtlendi I think those are OCR errors.

comment ら抜き言葉: Why doesn't 忘れれれば exist?
I segmented it as 〜られ+れば because I think that's what modern linguists tend to do (calling it -(r)eba to indicate at once how it attaches to consonant-stem and vowel-stem verbs), but if you prefer, you can segment it as 〜られれ+ば, which I think is how it's done in Japanese school grammar.

@EiríkrÚtlendi But if I look up られる, the dictionary says the 仮定形 is られれ, and if I look up ば, it says ば attaches to the 仮定形 of 活用語, so 〜られれ+ば.
