Grammar/vocabulary pregunta


#1

My Anki deck has this:

仕事の見通しがたたない。
There’s no prospect for my work.

I’m a bit confused about たたない. Is it the negative form of たつ?

jisho.com defines たつ as follows:

  1. to stand; to rise; to stand up​
  2. to find oneself (e.g. in a difficult position)​
  3. to depart (on a plane, train, etc.)​

…but none of these seem to fit. Any ideas?

It’s a bit metaphorical I guess. But it’s a pair of words you’ll hear together. 見通しが立つ

Weblio has a bunch of sentences for 見通し and many use 立つ.

Thanks, Leebo. Those sentences are helping me wrap my head around it.

Yea, 立つ has a lot of more figurative and idiomatic usages that it’s just kinda one of those words.
