so im just wondering.... looking at hiragana gray == はいいろ (haiiro) and brown == ちゃいろ (chairo). but the length of the " i " in both words sounds the same to me. is there really no difference in the pronunciation of the " i " in both words? if thats the case and there is no difference im wondering why gray is not just hairo (はいろ)

the kanji character for blue (青) in chinese means green.So it'll confuse the hell out of me.

that has historical reasons because is known that japanese used to see Green and Blue as one color, but eventually it came out a distinction between for them. that's why japanese have blue semaphores too

I am at a serious disadvantage... I can read chinese and sometimes the characters look alike ... I can only remember the colors because of Kuroko no Basuke. Kuroko = Kuro = black . Akashi = aka = red . Midorima = Midori = green. Murasakibara = Murasaki = purple, and so on...

Just curious is it an American thing to spell grey as gray as in England it is spelt grey?
Ninjadan77 5 years ago
yh because in England it has to be spelt grey although it makes sense as since their is small differences between English and American English which are usualy overlooked i just never known it to be spelt in that way

I have a question When do we know when to use kanji instead of hirigana or katagana
Korilakkuma 4 years ago
+Hussain Alkhafaji I believe from Japanese EXP Katakana is used when it is originally American, such as any name from america. Let's go with Katherine. Katherine, in Katakana, is spelt more simply to americans than Hiragana. Katakana: キャサリン Hiragana: きゃさりん I learned Hiragana in Japanese exploratory however, except for our names. Mine resembled アリッサ in Katakana. In Hiragana, ありっさ. Katakana is more simple to us foreign countries.
Learn Japanese with JapanesePod101.com
Hello,Hussain Alkhafaji Thank you for posting. You could technically write Japanese entirely in kana, although it would become very difficult to read and lack the context clues provided by kanji. If 海山 is someone's (family) name, first make sure it is really pronounced as うみやま because it could have some other pronunciation. Secondly, depending on the context for which you're writing the name, you have several different options. If you're using 海山 to just mean "the sea and mountains" (or the phrase 海山の恩), you can, and probably should use kanji. So what's the rationale for replacing kanji with hiragana? Well, if you don't know how to write the kanji, you can always fall back to hiragana as I mentioned. Another rationale would be writing something like a children's book. Since young children may not know kanji, or how to read a certain kanji, the author may use hiragana (although I believe 海 and 山 are likely taught at a young age). What's the rationale for using kanji instead of all kana? As I said, ease of reading. Once you start learning kanji, reading anything written in all kana can be "difficult"; not that it's hard, but certainly can take longer. Kanji also gives context. Japanese has many homonyms, so seeing something written in kanji can give you a reasonable, if not exact understanding of what it means. For example, if I write the word いし, you don't know if I mean "rock" (石), "doctor" (医師), "will/volition" (意志), or any of the many other words with that pronunciation.

Hi, thanks for your comment. Wari is such a broken way to say sorry. It's often used in conversations by men between friends. If you really want to show "sorryness", I recommend you use "gomen(casual sorry)" or "gomennasai(politer than gomen)" or "sumimasen(politer than gomennasai used towards older people)". Actually there are a lot more ways to say sorry with different politeness level, but here are the most common ways to say sorry. Thank you. JapanesePod101,com
