Wanikani memes

Actual usage of 企てる 企てる #sentences - Jisho.org
does not appear to support the plain english definition of ‘plan’ either.

彼女は自殺を企てた。
She attempted suicide.

彼は試験で不正行為をしようとくわだ企てていた 。
He contrived to cheat in the examination.

投資家グループは企業買収を企てています。
An investors’ group is attempting a leveraged buy-out of the firm.

It appears that other synonyms such as “attempt” are more accurate, though also not exact. It’s good to remember that one-to-one translations between languages rarely exist, especially when they don’t share roots (such as latin)

yeah, “attempt” seems closer in these cases, with a connotation of planning or seeking a goal, though sometimes “plan” seems fine. But you said it yourself, one-to-one translations are difficult/limited, especially between japanese and english. So i’m fine with close enough matches, and getting a better feel for the word in context (later). Thanks for the example sentences, i think i got a better feel already :slight_smile:

I feel this one so much. I really wish the context sentences were based on or at least relative to your Wanikani level. Meaning use mostly words that you have already learned.

Absolutely! I’ve also thought that would be great. Probably not easy to implement.

I love learning kanji outside of wanikani because I never forget it! :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: like five mouths saying something make a language and is read kata because it is the way in which one speaks (語)… and with two drops of luck, your rabbit will be the easter bunny, and lay eggs! 卵 :joy:

I believe the lower one is 「たまご」, meaning “egg”.


Edit:

Beat me to the punch!
