Collation[ edit ] Collation word ordering in Japanese is based on the kana, which express the pronunciation of the words, rather than the kanji. Kanji dictionaries are usually collated using the radical system, though other systems, such as SKIPalso exist.
Direction of writing[ edit ] Main article: In this format, the characters are written in columns going from top to bottom, with columns ordered from right to left. After reaching the bottom of each column, the reader continues at the top of the column to the left of the current one.
This writing format is horizontal and reads from left to right, as in English. A book printed in tategaki opens with the spine of the book to the right, while a book printed in yokogaki opens with the spine to the left.
Spacing and punctuation[ edit ] See also: Japanese punctuation Japanese is normally written without spaces between words, and text is allowed to wrap from one line to the next without regard for word boundaries.
This convention was originally modelled on Chinese writing, where spacing is superfluous because each character is essentially a word in itself albeit compounds are common. In romaji, it may sometimes be ambiguous whether an item should be transliterated as two words or one. This punctuation is also occasionally used to separate native Japanese words, especially in concatenations of kanji characters where there might otherwise be confusion or ambiguity about interpretation, and especially for the full names of people.
Colons and semicolons are available but are not common in ordinary text.
Several bracket styles and dashes are available. History of the Japanese script[ edit ] Importation of kanji[ edit ] Main article: Even today Japanese high schools and some junior high schools teach kanbun as part of the curriculum. Due to the large number of words and concepts entering Japan from China which had no native equivalent, many words entered Japanese directly, with a pronunciation similar to the original Chinese.
At the same time, native Japanese already had words corresponding to many borrowed kanji. Authors increasingly used kanji to represent these words.
A kanji may have none, one, or several on'yomi and kun'yomi. Okurigana are written after the initial kanji for verbs and adjectives to give inflection and to help disambiguate a particular kanji's reading.
The same character may be read several different ways depending on the word. Some linguists have compared the Japanese borrowing of Chinese-derived vocabulary as akin to the influx of Romance vocabulary into English during the Norman conquest of England.
Like English, Japanese has many synonyms of differing origin, with words from both Chinese and native Japanese. Sino-Japanese is often considered more formal or literary, just as latinate words in English often mark a higher register.Year 5 as a reminder whilst turning text into a play script.
