    Re: Post the Japanese you learn today here

    That's cool, I have wondered how to say "for me" before but I was never near a dictionary at the time.

    There's also 私としては which seems to be more "as far as I'm concerned".

    Yes. This is the negative form for nouns and na-adjectives.

    na vs ii adjective (keiyoushi, keiyoudoushi)

    きれいじゃない = not beautiful

    あついじゃない = incorrect usage (anyway wanna confirm/deny that? I assume it's colloquial if it is used)

    Re: Post the Japanese you learn today here

    Crazy - this doesn't even appear in my usual online dictionary (this may be a good reason to change). I've seen the kanji used before in 了承 (acknowledgement) though.

    Edit: No, I was just being a...
