Writing Numbers

Postby Elumi » Wed 04.20.2005 10:52 am

I got a question in writing numbers in Nihongo. They use the usual numbers (1, 2, 3, etc...), right? There's no other form in writing the numbers?

They write numbers in Kanji: 一, 二, 三 etc.

Do you use windows? If you do, go to http://www.microsoft.com and download the Japanese 'global ime'.

No problem! ;)

Here are the numbers 1 - 9.

一 (ichi)
二 (ni)
三 (san)
四 (shi)
五 (go)
六 (roku)
七 (nana)
八 (hachi)
九 (kyuu)

Remember that most kanji's have several readings. I just wrote one of the readings.

[Edit]: By an unknown reason number 10 wont show. So it's only 1 - 9.

Click on Kanji from the site menu, click on 4kyuu...
The first 13 listed are the kanji for 1-10, 100, 1000, and 10000.

You could also go here: http://www.thejapanesepage.com/forum/vi ... ?f=7&t=84

.. And get the kanji for hundred to hundred unvigintillion.

So no Kana is used in the numbering systems. Hmmm... I guess I really have to know kanji. Why am I prolonging it! Well, let the brain work. This is like my fourth language and it still bewilders me that I have to learn three set of alphabets in Nihongo.
Number system looks easier in this thread. Arigatou gozaimasu, Daisuke!

If you want to learn Japanese, you'll have to learn kanji. I think Kanji is hard, but i am getting used to them.

No problem. B)
