Did the Japanese language grow out of the Chinese language?

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

Yes. Korea is the product of migration from China, then Japan was the product of migration from Korea.

When the Koreans came and founded Japan, they adapted a language and culture similar to what the priests had in Korea. With that, the lettering came too.

Japanese doesn't really have an alphabet. They have 4 different writing styles. Kanji, Hiragana, Katakana, and Romaji.

Romaji is basically english letters that spell out Japanese words.

Kanji is the Chinese-based set of idiograms. A roman letter, like what English is made of, spells out a word based on each letter representing a sound. Idiograms like Kanji, represent ideas. So, you can't really sound out kanji, you just have to know what it means. So, there are literally tens of thousands of kanji. Since nobody knows all Kanji, the Japanese created Hiragana and Katakana, which are 2 ways of writing that anyone can read... in that, Hiragana and Katakana are characters that are sound-based, so you can sound out a word. But, the Japanese still use Kanji in cases where the word is a commonly used word.
