In Genki I it lists いえ as being "Home/House" (later on) but also "yes" (earlier on).

This seems contradictory. Is this incorrect, or does it just mean two different things?

Worksafe loli is always relevant.

Kanji motherfuckers... do you use it?

or IS IT TO HARD AND HARDER TO WRITE????

So,
いえ = yes
いいえ = no

I guess this is one of those context things.

家=house.

>> No.776419

>>776396
It's one of those spoken differences. You won't see ううん really written anywhere, unless it's in a conversation.

It's more of a groan or something.

>> No.776424

Its a spoken difference, you dont see the kaniji for house appearing in speach, you have to follow what the person is saying and use common sense.

>> No.776426

just checked the pic and i thought this thread was about religious discussion, seems like i made a mistake

いえ is very rarely used as no. It's better to remember it as いいえ.

>> No.776445

>>776435
If you see いえ anywhere, it's pretty safe to assume it's no and not house (which would be 家)

>> No.776543

否 is something read as "iya" and "ie", especially as "ie" if it's 否々("ieie").

LOL HOMOPHONES

Japanese has a very limited number of sounds, thus, a staggering amount of homophones.

Maybe you should learn a little more about languages in general before trying to tackle Japanese. Just some basics in linguistics. I'm not trying to be a dickhead, it's easier once you understand how languages and language acquisition work.

I saw somewhere where it says rose is a type of flower but later on it says rose is past tense of rise.

This seems contradictory. Is this incorrect, or does it just mean two different things?
