Infidel, I think you mentioned a roomaji based pitch accented dictionary at some point.

Could you reword this for me, I found it more confusing than helpful. ":Do be aware of how pitch accent works, though. An accent of 0 and an accent on the last syllable are pronounced the same way, but if the word is followed by a particle, then the particle is pronounced high if the accent was 0, and low if it was not."

That was a copy and paste of furrykef's explanation. I ordered "Japanese Pronunciation Guide for English Speakers" and it's in the mail right now. I might touch up this article after I've had time to study it.
