Hey! It's a great idea what you do, but I think that it would be better to put the words in hiragana and not in Romaji, so we also get used more to Hiragana


From Jisho.org Japanese dictionary:

沼地 - NumaChi

Hiragana - ぬまち

Noun, No-adjective

  1. marshland; wetland; swampland​

Kanji in this word:

沼 - marsh, lake, bog, swamp, pond

Kun: ぬま On: ショウ

地 - ground, earth

On: チ、 ジ
