Happy Tuesday everyone.
As I outlined before, every Tuesday will be Kanji day.
Now, there are tons of websites and Youtube vids that deal with real basic stuff, so I decided not to touch on those.
This blog will be for those who already have a basic knowledge, or even an advanced one, of Japanese.
A little background on me. I passed the 漢字検定一級 which is the highest level of the Kanji test for Japanese people. It contains about 6000 kanji (for reference, the average Japanese person knows about 1800-2200).
So, here are today's Kanji.
3 Kanji for the word Say
All of these are pronounced いう and they all mean the same thing. In older books (older meaning from about 150 years ago) 云う is more common. Also, just a little trivia, the word いう used to be written いふ or 言ふ.
Well, that's all for today. More Kanji next week.
