Phonetical approach to Japanese Language − a Self-tutorial course

Japanese Phonetics Part 2 - 2 :

Take note that in Japanese Language a phenome "s" is never pronounced as if it has phonetical element "z" like as in English, and a phenome "g" is never pronounced as if it might have element "j" like as in Italian. Check the following table to mind a pure nature of Japanese phonetical sounds.

 

K
S
T
H
G
Z/J
D
B

In this table "J" doesn't fall in the elements of phenome, but it is used only in writing mode. Phonetical expression as a part of phenome "J" should be expressed with a half-vowel "y" like this: "Zy".

 

Now let's continue to go forewatd.
