nihongo o yoku benkyoshimasu. keredomo, sukoshi wakarimasu. Thanks for your replies, it was just food for thought, and a measly helping at best. I really didnīt expect such technical answers, if any. I know the character change alters meaning and that sometimes old or new characters are used as well, I suppose it was kind of a badly stated question. I just wanted to know which element of the training you(pl.) value most. No, the order and meaning never have surpassed and never will surpass the importance of the training itself, at least not to me. Thanks for being kind about a stupid post.
