|blabby||Does anyone know the difference in nuance between 依存(いぞん), 依頼(いらい) and 頼る(たよる).|
I think 依頼 involves requesting (maybe to a superior) while 依存 is maybe a little stronger? Usually I hear に頼ってる in casual speech.
By the way, should the Japanaese title be changed to に依存? The ro-maji and Kanji don't match.
|bamboo4||依頼 means "to request."|
依存 means "to rely upon"
頼る means "to depend on" or "count on"
依存 is stronger than 頼る
|赤毛||in the WWWJDIC, there are two pronunciation for 依存: "いぞん" or "いそん". Why do you have only one in the title of this grammar entry?|
