This part is a little different... Take it
slow and you should be able to catch on
PART TWO - Combinations
BASE + a smaller ya,
yu, or yo
ki + ya = kya
with the boldfaced ones)
careful with the boldfaced ones)
Again in time this will seem natural -
So this only pertains to the bases with the "I" at the end?
Thanks very much! this website is invaluable. Its completely irrelevant to this page but what does the ー you sometimes see in japenese sentences mean?
I answered that a bit in a few comments on the page for the き kana: http://thejapanesepage.com/beginners/hiragana/ki#comment-2159 and http://thejapanesepage.com/beginners/hiragana/ki#comment-2166
Hopefully those help answer your question? :)
Ah yes that explains it. Thanks alot!
For everything outside of Shi,Chi,Ji, you end up removing the last letter of the base word and then combining. For everything else, its removing the last letter of the base and the first letter of the smaller word. Its very simple to remember.
Few days ago when i was looking through all the lessons this lesson scared me the most. But now that i'm actually here. It's not that big of a deal!
okay....i get it! the first hiragana is big and the second is small. at least that is how im going to remember it.
Wow... What? I think I got it. The "ji" combinations seem a little tricky though...
I'll get it ...Eventually >.<
