    Hiragana (ひらがな)



    HIRAGANA

    <img src="http://img09.shop-pro.jp/PA01040/796/etc/inei-hiragana.gif" width=100%>

    I thought a lot of variations about doing the lesson easy to get,not long and not boring. It's hard to harmonize these three things. Well,at least I'll try to make it be nothing more than an interesting talk,na?
    Don't put the bandage around head with the Japanese flag drawn there,lol. We are not in movies, just take it as an article about something interesting. Be curious and don't sit with the note book right away to write down things. I told you,read and think. Later on - write.

    Things you should know about Hiragana
    • Hiragana is not kanji,none of the symbols are kanji. Remember it,it's a writing system,not a kanji system.
    • Every single character,in general, has an order of writing.
    • Hiragana is the basic of Japanese language,your first steps into the language.
    • There are 48 characters in Hiragana.


    For now,these things you should try to keep in mind. Of course,there are more things to mention - but stressing out the brain will do no good.

    A few last words, as a teacher I suggest you and advice you to not try write them all the same way you see them. Of course,the symbol should be written well,but don't try to copy it. We all have different handwriting,so keep it in mind.
    Also,I'll give you a link to a video. You should know how to pronounce them. (:

    (:

    There is not only one difference.
    I said that Hiragana is not kanji,pretty true. Hiragana is the basic of everything. To know how to pronounce the certain kanji,you should know its reading. Depending on if it's a Japanese reading,or Chinese one - you use Hiragana or Katakana.

    Hiragana is used to write down words that don't have kanji for them,or when you have to put some verb in a formal way,you add the formal sufix with hiragana. Also,when you don't know what kanji to use to write down someone's name,before asking them,you can use Hiragana. In a point of view to not mistake the name's kanji and offend the person. (:

    Basically, Hiragana is the pure Japanese,but of course this is a little bit historical topic. I might talk about it in a few days. While kanji comes from Chinese,but Japanese put on them their own meaning and spelling.

    So.. dearest I have a question... in every day japanese, both are mixed? I mean.. ppl writting a letter or sth mix both Hiragana and Katakana? for example kids at school.. they use hiragana to suply the non-existant kanji? you might have replied to this one..and I apologize if you did...

    Now,XD
    You mentioned four different things,dear.
    Everyday Japanese is not only Hiragana and Katakana. There are Kanji,slangs and new daily born words. As we make up words in our native language to be more original. They do the same and they decide in what way to write it,type it,say it.

    In letters,here depends what letter.
    If it's a love letter XD .... up to you,but supposedly you should consider two things. If you are gonna do a well written love letter,you should use kanji. The other person might find you for an idiot to use only hiragana and katakana,but for example,you are in high school.
    But if you use too many kanji... you might get to make them frustrated at so many difficult things written in the letter. Might think some nerd did it,lol. Depends on one's point of view. If they like you back,they'll spend some time with the dictionary. XD

    If it's a letter to a friend,you mix hiragana,katakana and kanji too. Just should keep the formal speech away. Except if you are not acting as a rock star to get your friend laughing. XD

    If it's a letter to resign or something... man,better take out the dictionary,lol. And the letter way of speech in general is different from the direct speech.

    But kids,yes. They use hiragana a lot. Especially in elementary school while learning kanji.
    Hiragana is used for native words that don't have kanji,I should make this clear as one function of hiragana. (:

    Oh my and you don't want us to be scared of Japanese? lmao.. I mean.. basically in writting the mix the 3?, even when they create a new word? I thought there was a limited nÂș of kanji with a particular meaning.-.. I know.. you'll explain kanji later, but.. you know I'm a language student so... lmao.. I'll be patient, try to understand what you're explaining and practice ...

    It's not Chinese to use only kanji,dear. (:
    But well, he who wants to be good at something should know nothing is easy.
    Well,I'll do a kanji thread ttyhese days,so you might understand,or not a few other things,lol. Don't do the mistake to jump into the pool without being sure your shoes won't drag you down to drown. (:
