Hello! I'm learning Japanese!

comment What is the basic knowledge before starting Japanese language lesson?
I'm afraid it's not clear to me what you're asking, so I've put the question on hold for now. This question was also flagged as off-topic by one of our users, and I think that may be the case as well; I'm afraid I don't see a specific question about the Japanese language here.

comment Specific differences to consider between any individual katakana and hiragana?
@kinyo It might be more accurate to say "particles are almost always written in hiragana". It's not true that they're never written in katakana.

I suggest you learn kana thoroughly before you tackle kanji.

comment Why are こんにちは and こんばんは used for greetings?
@Kaji I don't think anyone thinks it's from *お早でございます. I think the latter is what some people assume, but it may or may not be the case. (Did you read the post linked above by Kouji Ueshiba?)

comment Is 行かされた a typo?
@istrasci Minor note: If you'd like, you can put two spaces at the end of each line instead of typing out <br/> each time. It has the same effect :-)

comment When an -i form (連用形{れんようけい}) of a verb seems to be a suffix rather than a prefix?
@hippietrail Most any 連用形 of a verb can be used like a noun. But 連用形 of adjectives are different and can't be used like nouns, with a few exceptions. (Some linguists suggest that the two don't form a coherent category, but many follow traditional grammar in treating them as the same thing because of their other similarities.)
