Japanese Phonetics - Part 2 : Step 1: (1)

 

Hereinafter in the matrices you may find various phonetical sounds likely or unlikely effective in the real experience composed of basic phonemes [C+V], [C+"y"+V] and [V+"n"]. The effective phonetical sounds consist of mostly words or idiomes, with inclusion of onomatopeias. These words and idiomes may often be omonims. Let's take one phonetical unit "Kaku" for an example from the first matrix : it may have meanings "to write", "to lack", "to picture", "to depict" or "to scratch", as well as "an angle", "a stroke" or "an nucleus", "a standing" or "a status" ect. How people can distingwish the appropriate meaning by the speaker? It only depends on the situation and the expression of phrase as well as on the tone of intonation and accent put on this word by the speaker. Insted it rather easier to take the meaning intended when reading any of written text, because the Japanes wrtten text may often be expressed in so called the mixed method of writing using "Hirakana", "Katakana" and Chines ideograms.
