面白い

I shared my most recent Japan Times article on the Facebook group Translators (Japanese<->English) because someone had mentioned the Green Goddess a month or so ago, and strangely enough Jim Breen himself responded! I’m fairly chuffed about this comment:

So now when you look up 面白い there’s a third listing that includes the definition “pleasant; enjoyable; agreeable; fun.” I can’t seem to find an archived version, so I’m not sure exactly how much it’s changed. Can’t seem to find a way to link a specific definition either, so here’s the JDIC top page.

So, yeah, that was cool.

One thought on “面白い

  1. Jim Breen is boss. Once I emailed the Mecab list with a dumb question about jukujikun, and he showed up and asked about my research, and gave me detailed orientation on what kind of Japanese electronic processing I actually wanted to do.

    The EDICT crew is also very open to collaboration, so if you perceive any shortcomings at all, by all means forward it through the web database interface; they’ll likely incorporate your suggestions!
