Hello HT friends 😄,
Welcome to my daily learning of 🇰🇷🇯🇵🇷🇺
#1 Daily Japanese 📝
📍 Hiragana is one of three character sets used in the Japanese language.
Each Hiragana letter represents particular syllable. Letter itself has no meaning.
Hiragana is used widely to form a sentence.
📍 In addition to these 46 basic letters called gojūon, there are modified forms to describe more sounds - 20 dakuon, 5 handakuon, 36 yōon, 1 sokuon and 6 additional letters.
✏️ 1) Gojūon-zu 【五十音図】
In Japanese, syllables are organized in the form of a table (5 x 10). This table is called gojūon-zu (literally means table of 50 sounds).
To describe these sounds, Hiragana and Katakana alphabets are used.
Letters い, う and え appear more than once in the table. These 5 duplicates (gray colored) are usually skipped or ignored.
Another syllable ん is included. It doesn't belong to any row or column.
The first row - あ [a], い [i], う [u], え [e] and お [o] are five vowels of the Japanese language.
Letters in the same column contain the same vowel.
Letters in the same row are considered to contain the same consonant.
Letters お and を represent the same sound [o]. を is used only as the particle in a sentence.
