In the browser format it's kinda hard, unless you scan the whole deck yourself. The desktop software will automatically indicate if you've already made a card with the same information on it.

Uh-oh.

I just realized I added a whole bunch of cards to the default deck instead of the other one. :shock:

EDIT: And...apparently Anki has forgotten that I ever added anything to the other deck??? o_O

EDIT2: Okay, I'm massively confused. -_- Every time I create cards...and then try to review them to make sure they're there...it forgets that I already created them, and so doesn't check whether I made any duplicates or not...:-|

Well, I was trying to help make Anki flashcards for księżycowy here, but...idk wtf is happening when I try to make them because I can't seem to see them without them disappearing or something?? So I gave up (for the time being, anyway).

As much as your troubles amuse me (and the amuse me greatly :P ), maybe we can find a platform that would allow us both to create/edit flashcards?

EDIT: Actually, why don't we just use a Google Spreadsheet and I can import it into Anki!

I prefer the classic "donkey shit", but to each their own. (If I remember correctly, I think I've discussed this with Linguoboy and someone else before, was it you? :P )

Any way, I'm working my way through Kapital Drei at the moment.

I have to remind myself what the construction es gibt means again. My best guess at the moment is "there is/are", based on the context in the lesson anyway.
Ex. Im Hotel Monaco es gibt eine Tiefgarage.

I have no recollection of that. "Donkey shit" doesn't even make sense. :?

Correct. Es gibt means 'there is/are' (though literally 'it gives', and I guess you could make up a context where it actually means 'it gives', too :P).

This is weird, though. I'd think it should be Im Hotel Monaco gibt es eine Tiefgarage, due to the verb-second (V2) word order in German and most(?) other Germanic languages.

And "Donkey shone" (which I would pronounce like "shown") makes sense?
[Helpful hint, it's not suppose to make sense :P ]

I'll double check that I typed it correctly.

EDIT: Yeah, that was my typo; I wrote it correctly in the book, but messed it up here. :P

It makes perfect sense when you don't know the difference between <o> and <ö> yet. :silly:

Kapitel = chapter, section
Kapital = capital, asset etc.
Please correct my mistakes!

Das moderne Hotel hat ein französisches Spezialitätenrestaurant.

So, französisches is a thing? I ask because I guess I was surprised because it ends in -sch already.

Yes, of course. Unless I'm missing something, every indefinite singular neuter adjective in nominative or accusative case (wow, that's a lot of conditions :P) ends with -es no matter what comes before it. Französisches, deutsches, italienisches, großes, ganzes...

Yeah, -(i)sch is a derivational suffix; -es is an inflectional one. One doesn't have anything to do with the other.
