Hi Jonah,


Thank you for your comment!


Your question is reasonable.

Each kanji has more than one reading and many kanji have various readings itself.

The kanji ไปŠ, for example, has the reading ใ„ใพ and ใ“ใ‚“ and they are read properly depending on the case.

In addition, some kanji have special reading combined with another kanji, like ไปŠๆ—ฅ (ใใ‚‡ใ†).

For more information about kanji, you will find in these lessons.

Let us know if you have further question:)


Sincerely,

Miho

I am a complete beginner here trying to also incorporate kanji as I go.

Please bear with me here, I'm sorry but am i losing my mind? ๐Ÿ˜œ

why is ไปŠ pronounced [ใ„ใพ] and ไปŠๆ—ฅ pronounced [ใใ‚‡ใ†] when it has the identical same 'ไปŠ' kanji.

And, how does a single kanji character have 2 syllables and 2 kanji characters have 1 syllable?

What is up and what is down?!

This has been GREAT because it involves so many angles and levels to produce a real sense of Japanese immersion

The transcript doesnโ€™t follow accurately with their dialogue. Distracting.

Thank you for asking here.

่‰ฏใ„/ใ‚ˆใ„ have certain rules but it's true we use sometimes randomly ๐Ÿ˜œ But I will show you when to use Kanji version of Yoi and Hiragana version.


Kanji

่‰ฏใ„ๅ‹‰ๅผทๆ–นๆณ•/Good study method

่‰ฏใ„ๆญฏๅŒป่€…/Good dentist

ๅฝผใฏ่‰ฏใ„ๅคซใงใ™ใ€‚/Hi is a good husband

ๅฅๅบทใซ่‰ฏใ„้ฃŸใน็‰ฉ/The food which is good for health.


Hiragana

ใƒ†ใƒฌใƒ“ใ‚’่ฆ‹ใฆใ‚‚ใ‚ˆใ„/You can watch TV

ๅฎฟ้กŒใ‚’ใ—ใŸใ‚‰ใ€ใ‚ฒใƒผใƒ ใ‚’ใ—ใฆใ‚ˆใ„/When you finish your homework, It's ok to play game(You can play game)

A:ใ“ใฎใƒ—ใƒญใ‚ธใ‚งใ‚ฏใƒˆใงใ„ใ„ใงใ™ใ‹๏ผŸ/Is this project fine to you?

B:ใใ‚Œใงใ‚ˆใ„ใงใ™ใ€‚/That's fine.

๏ผˆใ„ใ„ is conversational version of ่‰ฏใ„/ใ‚ˆใ„๏ผ‰


As you can see, ่‰ฏใ„ goes with noun to indicate good or bad. ใ‚ˆใ„ comes to the end or with copula to give someone permission or showing your preference.


Feel free to ask us any questions, Cheers!
