2) ありはしなかった is equivalent to なかった, just with the contrastive は stuck in there.

4) ならざる is archaic for じゃない.

Re: 十二国記 vocabulary, grammar & kanji

I'm completely ignorant about this kind of issues, but I think we should be careful. How to go around the problem? - post only "our" translation, which can't be reconciled (as far as I'm concerned) with any original, quoting the references previously agreed upon? Would that be OK ? Dividing §X,§Y, e...

Re: 十二国記 vocabulary, grammar & kanji

As promised, my attempts at translating the first part, so you can destroy it while I'm not there and I'll read the log! I'll double post for grammar and kanjis. I try to group them according to Katafei's paragraphs. §1 「孵ったようだね」 It looks like you have hatched ! ふいに声が聞こえて、彼女は音声のしたほうのを見た。 Suddenly a ...

Re: JLPT 2 2008/2009

Sorry for you, Katafei, but at least you took a try, not like some others (I mean myself)...
