Preface: I’m pairing Wanikani with a 10k Anki deck, ordered by WK level and without the words already covered by WK, which I use to study additional vocabulary at a flexible pace. I’ll write more details when I’m ready to publish it, as it’s derived from another resource I found in this forum.
But now that I’ve completed L5, I’ve unlocked a number of words using 何 that I’m finding hard to tell apart.
This is the word list:
何とか＿＿ somehow, please
何しろ＿＿ anyhow, as you may know
何で＿＿＿ why, what for
何となく＿ for some reason
何と＿＿＿ how, surprisingly
何だか＿＿ somehow, for some reason
何より＿＿ above all, most of all
何て＿＿＿ what, how?
何べん＿＿ (how) many times
何でも＿＿ anything, whatever
何とも＿＿ extremely, (not) at all
何かと＿＿ in various ways
何ら＿＿＿ of any kind, whatever
I already knew 何か, 何で, 何でも, so I’ve been looking for mnemonic or grammar rules for all the others.
Here are some I came up with myself:
何とか＿＿ in one way or another (とか = or such)
何しろ＿＿ as you may know (しろ = 知ろう？)
何より＿＿ most of all (より = more than)
何べん＿＿ how many times (へん = future kanji 遍 meaning times)
But for the following I draw a blank, mainly because I don’t understand the meaning of と in this context:
As well as these, no idea at all:
Can anybody help me find explanations or mnemonic rules for these words?
