romaji search bug report
  • there is a bug with っち while searching in romaji.
    e.g. when searching for "acchi" it becomes "あcち" instead of "あっち".

    ps: absolute great site. many thanks ^^
  • I agree that 'acchi' should work, but in the meantime 'atti' gives you "あっち".
  • Oops. I'll fix that one in the next update*.

    *: not promising a release date though ;)
  • I am having troubles with another one - how do I write "づ"?

    My best guess is "tzu", but it makes "tず"!?
  • Just as te becomes de, so tsu becomes dzu.
  • In many input engines, dzu doesn't work. In those systems, simply use "du" instead.
  • OK, thank you!

    But I'm figuring that it verbally still is pronounced "zu" as written in a dictionary!?

    Yes, they're supposed to sound the same.

    I sometimes think I can hear a difference between ず and づ, but it's always strenuously denied when I mention it to Japanese people - maybe I'm just imagining it because of the romaji, which of course is one of the many reasons we should try to avoid romaji whenever possible.

    well, this has been written about a year ago... how about setting a release date? ;)
  • Wow, shame on me.

    Yes, I can give a release date. -5 minutes ago. Just pushed it out.

    http://jisho.org/words?jap=acchi&eng=&dict=edict (make sure you reload if it still shows as あcち, since it's cached)

    Very embarrassing that it would take this long to get around to, considering that it was a 3 line fix: http://github.com/Kimtaro/jisho.org/commit/3aeed013cc572043217b5b8fadcd8e637e7df384

    Any supporter of this bug can hereby redeem a consolation beer from me should we ever cross paths :)

Howdy, Stranger!
