What do you type in when you have no idea what the kanji is?

Nice question ^^
When I realize the chances to get the answer right are too thin I usually type in “waa” or “わ“ as in “whaaat is it, i totally don’t remember

I put ‘hi’ for both meaning and reading I have no idea why XD

Haha same this is exactly what I write

That’s why I do あああああああああ which is also a good representation of my inner monologue


which kanji/level is that?
If I search ‘?’ from the dashboard search, it does not return any result.

ps: I am smarter than the machine, i searched \? :muscle: :mechanical_leg:


for the reading, “idk”
for the meaning, "い”

or if I’m particularly annoyed at myself


“a” or “ぁ” because I can get to it fast and it’s usually wrong

しらない usually

XDDDD!!! Same word here.
One time I was so angry, I typed the refrain from “never gonna give you up”… I still struggle with this damn vocabulary. But one day… one day!!!
I can get extremely creative when I am pissed at my lacking kanji knowledge.

But most of the time I just type f*ck or any other swearword XDDD

Funnily I often do not remember the correct meaning the next time around, but I still remember which swearword I have used!

Sometimes I write “dunno,” sometimes, when I’m really mad at it, I’ll write “was never gonna remember.”

This touches me, deep inside.


Same thing I type when I don’t know the pronunciation.


Just some random keys or just no.

i make myself not think about it hard. if I don’t know within a few seconds then I don’t know it and the function of the SRS is to then let me review it and then bring it back to me faster.

same here, “い” or “i”, too lazy to type I guess

I also usually do い or う for no good reason (but should change it now that I’m getting kanji where that could be correct). I actually avoid typing in something like こう or りょく just because I’m worried I’ll accidentally teach my brain to associate the kanji with an incorrect reading. So maybe ああああああ is a good way to go. :smiley:


On reading questions I have to type the okurigana, because I installed the ‘do you even kana’ script on my laptop. On my phone I just select a kana at random, or guess. Except lately I have been usig Flaming Durtles, so I just use the “don’t know” button.

じ is for Jesus

This is why I installed the “close but no cigar” userscript, because I was accidentally cheating way too often.
