Is there any way to get private sentences to show for word quizzes? I was hoping to port some of the JLPTsensei N3 grammar material to renshuu just to study the grammar terms themselves (to memorize their meaning, not to practice use). For now I just open another tab to look up each term's examples on my own but would prefer to have them listed underneath the term like with all the other example sentences for official renshuu lists.
They should be available as long as you bind them to the dictionary (where it splits up the sentence word-by-word).
If it's not showing up, please do this for me: the next time a word with a private sentence doesn't give you that sentence in the quiz, tap the ? button at the top and send in a quiz report. That should help me isolate the issue.
I have not been available the last few days, sorry! Can you please do the following for me:
1. Go to Learn > Lesson center, make a new (private) lesson, and add 2-3 terms that have private sentences in them, but the sentences are not appearing in quizzes. Please let me know once you've done that, so I can use the lesson for testing and fixing the issue. Thanks!
Here's what is happening: each of the terms you are working on were user-entered terms. In other words, they were added as private entries to the dictionary despite there being an official entry in the renshuu dictionary database.
As an example, let's use あまりにも. This is in renshuu's dictionary, and it has example sentences. However, the one you are studying (same with ばよかった, ほう～が) were ones made by users - this is why there is a little red U next to the term. These are *not* verified by renshuu.
So when you added a sentence to each of these, the word binding popup appears, and asks you to bind the words in the sentence to the dictionary. This binding system does not reference user made terms - some of them are duplicates, and others may contain data that is inaccurate and cannot be verified. So, it finds the official entry of あまりにも, and binds the sentence to that.
In other words, this issue only exists for user-made words - any private sentences attached to terms in the official dictionary work without a hitch.
I will think about if there is a way to make a special link between your private sentence and the word you are attaching it to, but it is not something I can do at the moment.
Good news - I changed the code a bit, so you can now bind a sentence to a word, even if the sentence does not contain the word. This should be much closer (if not 100%) of expected behavior from your end.
1. It will not be possible to tokenize them in the way you're describing, since they are not "available" in the parsing system. This may be something I can fix in the future, but it's a much larger change that would require a lot more work.
2. I can wipe all your private sentences if you'd like.
