Forgive me if there is a more appropriate technical term for the thing I'm searching for. When I studied Japanese in Taiwan a few years back, I learned that it was important to learn the right high low pitch intonation for new words. This was usually noted by a number between 0 and 6 (I think), as in おはよう0 or 犬(いぬ2). The Japanese/Chinese hardbound dictionary I still have from then has these numbers for all entries, but now that I'm trying to get back into Japanese study, but with my cell phone and computer, I can't find an online dictionary or app (android preferably) that has them. I looked through all the suggestions on the resources page here, but none of them seems to have them. Am I missing something? Thanks!

  • accent.u-biq.org/english.html maybe? – Chocolate Jan 4 '16 at 4:15
  • Yes! This is just what I'm asking about. Am I right in assuming that this is not a much paid attention to aspect of pronunciation for beginners like myself, seeing as how it's not a part of most dictionary entries? – David Bell Jan 4 '16 at 4:24

    I've gone ahead and added an answer to our meta post on resources: Resources for pitch accent ← Please, everyone, feel free to add resources or work on the descriptions I've written :-) – snailplane Jan 4 '16 at 23:15
