Stackz - New Feature Requests / Example Sentence Integration
« on: October 17, 2006, 05:02:15 AM »
This is truely great news!

So glad you've heard the users' requests for example sentence integration.
Jim Breen's dictionary now links all entries to the ALC database so this may be another possiblity.
I use both the Tanaka Corpus and ALC daily.  Both are huge databases that are very helpful and useful.
I'm surprised more developers have not recognized the tremendous potential of utilizing them.

The Stackz Wordlists / Kanji Study Set
« on: June 10, 2006, 05:18:26 PM »
Greetings fellow Stackz users!

Last year over the course of a few months, using kanjibrowse utilities I created a study set for the complete jouyou kanji list.? The set consists of 39 files of 50 lessons each (45 in the last).? Each lesson contains all the vocabulary tagged common usage by edict for that particular kanji.? As well, I created a supplementary file for vocabulary containing non-jouyou kanji that are also tagged common usage.? I did this by manually individually analyzing about 7000 kanji and collecting the vocabulary results produced by the dictionary.? In total I'd estimate there are about 20000 words separated into individual kanji vocabulary lessons.

I'm very pleased with how this project turned out, and use it frequently.? My main goal when creating this, was to have a system where I could either focus on one kanji at a time, or many if I wanted.? I limited the lessons to words tagged common usage to keep the file size manageable and practical.? Currently I don't have the files uploaded anywhere, but if anybody is also interested in using these files, feel free to message me your email address, and I can send the set to you in a zip file.? Also, MindDate staff is welcome to host the set for public usage if they are interested in doing so.

Best to you all with your studies.

KanjiBrowze / Japanese Places Dictionary File

I'd like to utilize the J_Places dictionary file in Kanjibrowze, but I can't seem to find a way to extract the .gz file into a usable format on Windows XP.   I've tried four different utilities (including Gunzip and Winzip) to try and do this, but still no success.

Anybody know how to get this to work?

Stackz - Solved Issues / Example Sentences
« on: February 09, 2006, 07:20:10 AM »

What I would really love to see, is a function that utilizes Jim Breen's example sentence database.  So often, when I'm learning vocab with Stackz I want to be able to put the new word into context.  Right now, I do a quick copy and paste from the test dialogue and into the website, but it would be really handy to have a button which did this itself, either stand-alone or integrated online.

One thing about learning vocabulary, it's great but not all that useful unless you have the grammar skill and context understanding to put the word into practice.

This is my suggestion.
