Here is an easy paste for Quizlet: https://pastebin.com/FJnynd27

Some words have been purposely left out because they are more grammar based than vocabulary or they are covered in the tips. Particles and endings have also been left out.

If you feel a word should be added or a mistake has been made, please tell me in the comments and I will fix it ASAP. :)

In Hiragana 2, のむ is not Drink(s), it's Drink (to drink). Drink(s) are のみ in Food 1. Very well done ! Thank you :)

This list is great, thank you. I'm copying your notes right into my notebook as I go along. I'm doing Intro 1 right now. です - is was introduced in this section. I think は also got used in a similar fashion but it was't explained and I'm still trying to figure that out,. さん is also in intro 1 as Mr. or Madam.

ありません or ではありません from intro 2 seems to be the negative form of です. maybe means am/is/are not. I'm stalking my mailman for a book I ordered so hopefully I won't feel so lost on here.

Awesome Tetr0! For 何 alone, It only means "what." It doesn't mean "which." Examples of "which" are どの and どれ.
