Lochan-san konnichiwa,

Thank you for your feedback.
Do you mean romaji doesn’t match katakana? You’re right. 😞
It’s fixed now! Please check it out!

For your information, ‘great white shark’ is hohojirozame, but some people call it as hōjirozame (ホオジロザメ).

Stay tuned,
Motoko

C. Shook, to add to the answer - alone, the word same stays with the sa pronunciation. This is the case when speaking of sharks in general. I think Sa changes to Za when there’s a preceding word (a noun/modifying noun - for the type of shark), and when you’re talking about specific ones. So hoojirozame is a great white shark.

奈津子先生,

Thank you so much for your help!
I awfully appreciate it😄
This “pronunciation-related changes” sounds interesting.
Is there a lesson that talks about this subject?
Thank you again, 奈津子先生, for taking the time to answer my question! 😁

PS: I call you “先生” which is “teacher”, yes?
I apologize. I’m new.
