Each letter has a phonetic sound but when combined with other letters this can change the sound. This is one of our favourites because it often confuses people when you look at it but is a favourite among linguists. Chinese Before we can dive into the Chinese alphabet we first need to distinguish what we mean by this. Katakana is used solely for imported words from other languages with the exception of Chinese. There are mostly two readings, one of each, for each word but there may be more and this depends an awful lot on context. It, as you might have guessed, originated in Roman times and is commonly used across many European languages. In general, phonetic components do not determine the exact pronunciation of a character, but only give a clue to a its pronunciation. In this case it can be seen that the pronunciation of the character is slightly different from that of its phonetic indicator; the effect of historical sound change means that the composition of such characters can sometimes seem arbitrary today. This is a particular element of language learning that is worth remembering, some languages have simple alphabets and tricky pronunciations and others have complicated character sets but well-defined pronunciations. The English alphabet First up on our alphabets of the world is the English alphabet which is actually the Latin or Roman alphabet. There is the onyomi, the originial Chinese reading, and the kunyomi, the Japanese reading. A few characters, including some of the most commonly used, were originally pictograms , which depicted the objects denoted, or ideograms , in which meaning was expressed iconically. These characters are composed of two parts: one of a limited set of characters the semantic indicator, often graphically simplified which suggests the general meaning of the compound character, and another character the phonetic indicator whose pronunciation suggests the pronunciation of the compound character. While some characters take the exact pronunciation of their phonetic component, others take only the initial or final sounds. The right-hand side in each case is a phonetic indicator.

They both use the same alphabet but commonly Cantonese uses traditional characters and Mandarin uses simplified Chinese characters. The same rebus principle for names in particular has also been used in Egyptian hieroglyphs and Maya hieroglyphs.

The vast majority were written using the rebus principlein which a character for a similarly sounding word was either simply borrowed or more commonly extended with a disambiguating semantic marker to form a phono-semantic compound character.

The right-hand side in each case is a phonetic indicator. Many words but not all with have a hiragana spelling and a kanji character to express the word. In most cases the semantic indicator is also the radical under which the character is listed in dictionaries. In general, phonetic components do not determine the exact pronunciation of a character, but only give a clue to a its pronunciation.

In most cases the semantic indicator is also the radical under which the character is listed in dictionaries. This is a particular element of language learning that is worth remembering, some languages have simple alphabets and tricky pronunciations and others have complicated character sets but well-defined pronunciations. Rebus was pivotal in the history of writing in China insofar as it represented the stage at which logographic writing could become purely phonetic phonographic. In general, phonetic components do not determine the exact pronunciation of a character, but only give a clue to a its pronunciation. There is the onyomi, the originial Chinese reading, and the kunyomi, the Japanese reading. This means that most characters combine a consonant and a vowel.

Originally made up of 17 consonants and 11 vowels, it has developed slightly over the years and now has 14 consonants and 10 vowels. Rebus was pivotal in the history of writing in China insofar as it represented the stage at which logographic writing could become purely phonetic phonographic.

In this case it can be seen that the pronunciation of the character is slightly different from that of its phonetic indicator; the effect of historical sound change means that the composition of such characters can sometimes seem arbitrary today. These will help you figure out the meaning of the word and give clues to its pronounciation. What that means is the letters are combined to make a square block. Characters in this class derive from pictures of the objects they denote. This disparity was caused by complex phonetic shifts and phonetic component swapping. Why the same alphabet twice you might ask? Chinese Before we can dive into the Chinese alphabet we first need to distinguish what we mean by this. With most kanji, there will be different readings in hiragana. That then brings us to kanji.
