Pitch Accent and Vocab Pronunciation

@Jonapedia and @alo I listened to the difference between Kenichi’s and Kyoko’s 平日 pronunciation, and I hear what y’all mean. If I pronounce words like Kyoko (which sounds more “correct” to my ears) would I sound more effeminate to native Japanese speakers?

@Lahoje I think you’re right; I’m also confusing pitch and volume like the American I am.

@diego_barreto Here’s the link: [Userscript] WaniKani Pitch Info. You’ll find this a lot easier than looking up pitch accent patterns outside of Wankani.

Thank y’all for all your help! I see that I need to improve my pitch accent.
