Just hit L2 and I was considering recording the pitch accent locations of each vocab item in reading notes. So far I’m thinking / & \ might be a good way to do this. [eg. い/ち, た/べ\る]
I got this idea after I read about OJAD on Tofugu’s new resource list.
But then I came across this short, very interesting paper advising beginners to ignore accent for the most part. I’m not exactly a beginner…lower intermediate-ish probably. I definitely want to be taking my own steps to develop speaking/listening proficiency alongside WK’s focus on reading.
What say you guys? Should I not bother recording accent and just imitate the audio samples?
If anyone does make a point to explicitly check accents, know any sleeker way to record them? / & \ are a bit bulky, and the way they mark accents on wikipedia doesn’t seem very intuitive to me.
