The Japanese Theme Language Contest had the goal of gathering people of different expertise, and pooling all of their specialized vocabulary into one place. At 20 cards a person, everyone chose a topic, found 20 sentences with themed vocabulary from that topic, and provided the readings, English definition, and Japanese definition.
Their hard effort and amazing work forms the Japanese Theme Language Package.
1. 13 themes (20 sentences each)
– Internet Error Messages
– Common J-RPG Terms
– Butler/Maid Polite Speech
– Comedy RPG
– School J-Drama
– Traditional Japanese Music
– Variety Show
2. Reading, J-E and J-J definition for every item (only the new introduced word is defined, the whole sentence is not translated)
3. 260 Anki cards (you can remove the J-E or J-J field depending on your level)
4. 44 page PDF file containing everything for the non-Anki users
The 3 best entries, as voted on by all those who participated:
1. Chemistry (Newbee)
2. Common JRPG Terms (Matt V)
3. Internet Error Messages (Valgaav)
Congratulations to these three. And a big thanks to everyone else. All of the entries were really done well.
