Also, I do apologize for the lack of stuff, I'm trying to make the board more colorful but just bear with me for a while longer.
As someone who is learning it, I don't really recommend it.
Most of the time it looks like they realized midway through a converstation that their grammar couldn't build a sentence to express a certain concept, so they improvised something on the spot and stuck with it for generations.
It really feels like it, doesn't it?
Take the no-adjective redpill. No-adjectives aren't just "nouns in the genitive case that happen to be translated as adjectives in English" like bluepilled cucks say; they're a full blown class of nominal adjectives on par with na-adjectives. Evidence? >の is a fully fledged attributive form of the copula, same as な, not just a genitive particle (these are two different のs, one a particle and one a verb). >If the adjective meaning came just from the noun being in the attributive case, then the adjective meaning would be limited to when it just followed by の (as a genitive case marker), but instead, you can replace the の with any (other) inflection of the copula (except な) without changing the meaning, like with な adjectives, and can use them anywhere you would use a な adjective.
Japanese.io is a good resource for reading Japanese webpages. It's a browser extension that parses all the text on a page and defines it like Tangoristo did, but it works on any webpage.
