- I was wondering which way this one would go. :P
The Japanese book that I happen to be currently reading actually only lists まいねん, lol. (Although this book is kinda old, as someone bought it while in Tokyo in 1986...)
I've been interested in the logic for 毎月 and 毎年 readings.
For 毎月 this book only lists まいつき, same as JCJP lessons, which I believe is much more common than まいげつ?
So it's strange the book picked the better choice for 毎月, but didn't do the same for 毎年.
I wonder if まいねん was more common 27 years ago?
I can see how まいつき became more common, for a more poetic but less strict 'every moon', but I don't understand the reasoning for まいとし?September 26, 2013 at 1:14pm
- yes, exactly. I guess, we should be ready for the dynamicity of readings, or even meaning when we start learning JapaneseSeptember 26, 2013 at 2:10pm
- I found this まいとし vs まいねん thing interesting, so I created a crazy thread in the forums about it for anyone interested. ^^
Would be interesting if people have any thoughts on which readings are correct, or more common. :)September 26, 2013 at 3:07pm
