Punctuation 。、「」

Oni's picture
Punctuation is in many ways similar to English. You have a comma, called a てん and a period at the end of a sentence called a まる.

Let`s quickly go over some common Punctuation thingies:

the まる acts just like our period by ending the sentence. It looks like a ball - maru

the てん acts like a comma. This is often found after は as in わたしは、あなたが好きです。 (I, like you)
「 and 」
These brackets hold quotations and work like our "" marks
