    Words like 川口 and 王子 are examples of Rendaku. I found this post on Tofugu http://www.tofugu.com/2011/08/23/rendaku-sequential-voicing-japanese/. Is it worth learning the rules and figuring out when it may occur or is it easier to just learn the exceptions?

    I saw the post too. For me, those rules seem to be pretty accurate, but I personally can’t remember them all. Maybe you can, but I find it easier to just learn the exceptions. The exceptions aren’t that hard, anyway, because it there wasn’t Rendaku, those words might be a bit hard to say.

    I was thinking the same. It seems alot easier to just learn the exceptions than all that info on the rules.
