[BUG] Search using passive form of verb not recognized #786

    • passive form search

As seen in the screenshot (tested using the verbs 立つ and 買う), searching using passive forms of the said verbs produces incorrect results. If you go to the inflections of the above 2 verbs, passive form would be:
立つ → 立たれる
買う → 買われる

I haven't yet tested this on other 'types' of verbs but I think this is a bug as I can search using other forms of these verbs, but not with the passive form.


    • second issue is incorrect inflection. Verb 帰る must have 帰られる as passive form, but search shows 帰られる as 'potential' form or as is shown in the app: 'I am able to do something'-verb.

Source of corrections: I am in a Japanese class right now and we have already studied these forms. To confirm, one can simply google 'japanese potential vs passive form' or something like that.

I haven't encountered other searches as of today but these are the ones that I have tried. Thank you!

Aedict version: 3.41
