I was making flash cards for the new vocabulary we're learning in my Japanese language course and encountered words that made me think, "Why!? are we learning this?" These words vary from "pre-paid telephone card" only to have the next word on the list be "soy sauce." So that got me wondering, "How strange is the vocab from your language course?"

Most elementary vocabulary is just a jumble of words. Its good you get a good standard base before you move onto specific themes. Don't worry, as you progress, you'll get more related words.

I was just thinking they're strange. I'm in second year Japanese, so the chapters do have themes. They're just strange....

We'll, I've been trhough 3 years of Classical Greek and Biblical Hebrew, 2 years of Latin, and suddenly, 1 year of German. My head nearly unhooked. I was so used to ancient, classical concepts and words, and suddenly I was confronted with words for everyday stuff in a language related to my own!

I could read a philosophical argument on the virtues of wisdom and sophistry on what is right and wrong and how to better yourself...and then how to order food from the restaurant.

The best part is always to discover words that sound obscene or just funny in your own language.

Can't remember any "hair" words though...

I take Latin, and we use this book: Lingva Latina per se illvstrata
The site explains it pretty well.

Ha! That brought back memories! I read (or rather skimmed) through that thing in while I was in high school. But in University we worked out of the Oxford Latin Course (3 vols. + 1 reader). Fun times.
