Re: Rdearman (FR, IT, ZH) 2016/17 - The way of the lazy fist.

Pretty much. quatre-vingt = 80 not 4 times 20. quatre fois vingt. And damn it - you work with computers, should be ok with non decimal systems.... You have no idea how long it took me to wrap my head about binary and hexadecimal numbers. However it is nice to tell people that I'm only 34 (in hex) :...

Re: Rdearman (FR, IT, ZH) 2016/17 - The way of the lazy fist.

More number use is the key. Haitian Creole uses the same French numbers. After I finished Genesis and the first chapters of Numbers in the Bible, I have no problems with them. The HC version of the Bible writes out the numbers in words alongside the numerical. Another key that I found helpful to me...

Re: Rdearman (FR, IT, ZH) 2016/17 - The way of the lazy fist.

There was a margin of error listed on the espeak website about the IPA produced, but even if only 80% is correct it's still better than what I'm currently doing. I would still look it up if I was completely unsure. I don't know if it's any more accurate, but here's another site that will take Frenc...

Re: Rdearman (FR, IT, ZH) 2016/17 - The way of the lazy fist.

Of course this doesn't annoy me as much as the way the French count. grrrr... I hate having to do maths to figure out a number... let's see... that is 4*20+12 .... er... 92? I read somewhere that the brain actually uses separate areas for language and numbers, so I think the only way to get to grip...

Re: Rdearman (FR, IT, ZH) 2016/17 - The way of the lazy fist.

a utility which would output IPA based on the French word That sounded interesting so I took a peek at your deck. It shows both /ɥ/ and /y/ as "y" - are you aware? And the card "I am = iam = [jˈam]" looked funny but maybe it's something specific to the game. There was a margin o...

Re: The French C1/C2 Group

I found a bit of software which will produce IPA from text. Useful if you want to make anki cards from French words and have the IPA pronunciation guide included without having to look it up in a dictionary.

Re: Rdearman (FR, IT, ZH) 2016/17 - The way of the lazy fist.

Quick update. I was a little annoyed with my anki deck for D&D because a lot of english words had gotten in and I'm trying to sort out my pronunciation in French. So with that in mind I searched around until I found a utility which would output IPA based on the French word. I found one called es...

Re: subs2srs/substudy deck order

I finally got substudy set up on my Mac, so I'm ready to give this thing a try Anki! Which immediately brings up my question: do folks find it's better to go through all the cards in order first, or start with random order? I normally go through them in order, but I don't think it makes much differ...
