|Miki||As for the comment in Notes, t should be にくい, not いくい. typo? |
In kanji 'にくい' is in 難い or 悪い
'verb conjugation + にくい'.
|crbennett||What's the difference between むずかしい and にくい? || |
|Groove||The different is that 難い is added to a verb stem to change it to an adjective, whereas 難しい is an existing adjective meaning 'difficult', and thus can't be conjugated to a verb stem.|
That word is difficult to remember (lit. That word's remembering is difficult.)
as compared to:
Remembering that word is difficult (lit. That word's remembering is difficult).
EDIT 10/15/07: You're right; thanks tiger!
|tigert||Hey groove in your second example. I don`t think you need the する.|
思い出す is a verb already. other than that I like your explaination very clear I added a vocabulary note for yasui
