「つづける」の情報

By attaching the verb (つづ)ける 'to continue' to the conjunctive form of another verb, we will be able to express that '(A) is continuing'. Let's have a look at a few examples of this structure.
  • サリー(くら)くなるまで(はし)(つづ)ける
    Sally will continue to run until it gets dark.
  • (わたし)漢字(かんじ)(おぼ)まで(おな)漢字(かんじ)()(つづ)ける
    I will continue to write the same kanji until I memorize it.
Caution
There is a difference in nuance between connecting one verb to another verb through the conjunctive form, or through the use of the conjunction particle . The former implies that '(A) is being done in the way of (B)', while the latter implies that '(A) is being done, and then (B)'.
  • 日本語(にほんご)(むずか)けど勉強(べんきょう)頑張(がんば)(つづ)ける
    Japanese is difficult, but I will give it my best and continue with study. (Emphasis on the continuation of studying)
  • 日本語(にほんご)(むずか)しいけど勉強(べんきょう)頑張(がんば)(つづ)ける
    Japanese is difficult, but I will continue giving it my best with study. (Emphasis on the continuation of giving it one's best)

    I tried answering a review using the continuous form of ~続ける and it was rejected:

    Even if you give that dog a treat, it will continue to bark.

    My proposition:

    餌をあげても、その犬は鳴き続けているよ

    I realized after the fact that 続ける in itself already carries the “continuation” part so it would be redundant, but I wonder if there’s any situation where 続けている would make sense?

    Hey @simias !

    The main reason 続けている was not accepted here is because the would change the meaning of the translation to ‘Even if you give that dog a treat, is is still continuing to bark’, because it is using a different tense then the first part of the sentence, and it sounds as unnatural in Japanese as it does in English.

    It would work if the sentence was さっきワンちゃんに餌をあげたのに、鳴き続けている。‘Even though I gave that dog a treat earlier, it is still barking (it ihas been continuously barking)’.

    I hope that makes sense!
