INTRODUCTION TO JAPANESE LANGUAGE

DESCRIPTION

Japanese 日本語Nihongo is an East Asian language spoken by about 125 million speakers, primarily in Japan, where it is the national language. Japanese has no genetic relationship with Chinese, but it makes extensive use of Chinese characters.

JAPANESE course levels are completely designed according to the guidelines of AJALT instructors (Association for Japanese-language teaching) Japanese has no genetic relationship with Chinese,[3] but it makes extensive use of Chinese characters, or kanji (漢字?), in its writing system, and a large portion of its vocabulary is borrowed from Chinese. Along with kanji, the Japanese writing system primarily uses two syllabic (or moraic) scripts, hiragana (ひらがな or 平仮名?) and katakana (カタカナ or 片仮名?). Latin script is used in a limited fashion, such as for imported acronyms, and the numeral system uses mostly Arabic numerals alongside traditional Chinese numerals.

Hiragana

Hiragana is derived from a style of Chinese calligraphy called cursive form. Some of them look very similar to their origins such as い&以, も&毛, け&計 while others demand a little bit more imagination. All Japanese students are first taught how to write Hiragana at school as they are the basic component of the Japanese language. It is possible to write a Japanese article in Hiragana only. But the problem is that there is no space between two Japanese words as in English and Japanese has a lot of Chinese terms that share the same pronunciation. Hiragana-only articles are difficult to read even for native Japanese. For example, 投資(invest),闘志(fighting spirit), 凍死(frozen to death), 唐詩(poems written in Tang Dynasty) and 党史(history of a political party) can all be written as とうし(toushi) in Hiragana. As you can see, ‘toushi’ is really meaningless if taken out of context. And are you willing to sign a Hiragana-only legal document?

Katakana

Katakana is derived from radicals or components of Kanji. For example, イis taken from the radical of 伊.After WWII, they are only used to write non-Chinese loanwords (e.g. カメラ(kamera) for ‘camera’) and scientific names (e.g. イヌ instead of 犬 or いぬ(dog).) Novel writers create terms in Katakana to show that the characters know how to pronounce the terms but don’t know their meanings. And manga artists always write dialogues in Katakana to show that the speaker is a foreigner. Because of Katakana, there are a lot of funny writing techniques that are never seen in the English speaking world.

Kanji

Kanji is generally hated by Japanese learners and even native students. As a Chinese myself, I hated them a lot because Chinese is all Kanji and Kanji only. Writing Kanji is a fast way to kill your pencils and train your arm’s muscles. And Chinese children usually begin reading much later than their European peers. But the Japanese are not stupid. There must be some reasons why they choose to keep Kanji in their language despite the difficulty to learn and write.
