  4. 4. But you'll notice there ate a few holes in the chart. I‘— I'll- hhehahh 3. tot ‘ll: J 'I'blj1bPilfllI'l-Pfhiiiillij
  5. 5. There are no hiragana for yi, ye, wi, wu, we in common use. Not in Common Use 11 w r y m 11 11 I 2) P_ is H‘ F 1 — H I 3_ 0) L» V23‘ / /v 1')‘ ‘ *0 “[32 ‘ -L, / c. ‘b t x i ‘ H :1 ~ ‘*1 . . —*i .1 .2-. l "J 0 lie. 14 , , *2 I L_ : { Q, ‘ ‘ A l I 2‘ Z. » Kb‘ 3; >«§v
  6. 6. There are also some hiragana that are pronounced differently depending on how they are used. 1!. -E! '.P29.L1.'_‘.3.1.9.l‘l“’
  7. 7. When these hiragana are used as grammar particles te mark objects or the topic of a sentence, they have different pronunciations. ll-. ..1’. '1.'. .'.3._9§. '.1.'. .‘.3_1.¥. l.‘: ’.[. l.’
  8. 8. The hiragana ii is usually pronounced ‘ha’, but when used as a particle, you pronounce it 'wa'. ii haewa 1!. -E! '.P29.L1.'_‘.3.1.9.l‘ll"
  9. 9. You can think of it this way, when it is with other kana it is laughing 'ha' and having fun / K EHal Ha! You are so funny na! 1 ii 7:; 1!. -£! '.PS. !9.'.1.'_‘.3.1;| .l‘llP

  11. 11. Something similar happens with ’ (he) and 733 (wo). They lose their first sounds / h/ and / w/, so they are pronounced ’ (e) and 75': (o). / Efeel Sometimes I like / L to be alone, okay? / [’ or No! rm an ‘ 7 / “ by lonesome! % / / 1!. -.; Pl! '.. !3.9.9.'! .'_9_! ;3.! ‘l|1’
  12. 12. The last hiragana we are going to go over is a special kana that just doesn't fit in with other hiragana.
  13. 13. That's / u , usually pronounced / n/, but pronounced / m/ before stop consonants. 1!. -£l'. PS. !9.'.1.'_‘.3.1;| .l‘llP
  14. 14. It is unique in that it is the only kana without a vowel sound. / u ll-£! '.. '.3.. ‘29.'.1.'_‘.3.1.i. l‘llP
