Grammar/vocabulary pregunta


My Anki deck has this:

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? 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.
