I’ve noticed on a couple words (e.g., 大いに, 見せる) there are notes that say certain hiragana in a vocab are indicative of a word’s function. For example, it seems that に can identify an adverb and せ in the word indicates transitivity. I have two questions:
- How solid are these two rules/patterns? I imagine there are plenty of exceptions, but are these things I can rely on?
- Is there a full list of these rules/patterns floating around somewhere? It’d be very helpful in separating out vocab that use the same kanji! (I know there are other rules like ーい usually indicates an adjective, ーう endings indicate verbs . . . are there more?)
