#10 What do 文・字 mean?

Hello there. It's kÜshi.

Do you have fun to study kanji and Japanese??

Having fun is the most important!

Love Japanese! Haha XD

So today's kanji are 文 and 字

Reads: bun
Means: a sentence


1. A short and easy sentence
...短くて かんたんな 文
/Mijika-ku te kantan na bun/

👉短い(mijika-i), which means short, changes to 短く when it has other verbs, adjectives, and て
In this case, this て means "and"

👉かんたんな means easy

2 . Make a sentence in Japanese
/Nihon go de bun o tsukuri nasai/

👉日本(にほん, nihon) means Japan and Japanese

👉語(ご, go) means a language

So 日本語 means Japanese language

👉で means "by"
Ex. バスで means "by bus"

👉つくりなさい is a imperative and (a little) polite form of つくる, which means to make.

If you want make just a imperative form (not polite), you can say つくれ(tsukure), but this sounds very harsh.

Reads: ji
Means: a letter( like ABCDEF...), not the way to contact with others.


1. A beautiful letter
/Kirei na ji/

👉きれいな means beautiful

2. I write the letter, あ
/A toiu ji o kaku/

👉という means "to be called"
For example, "the dog called Tom" meams "トムという犬"

犬 is a dog.

👉かく means to write

You can also write 文字(もじ, moji. I don't know why this isn't bunji) as the meaning of 字.

Then you'll ask me the difference between 字 and 文字.

Well... actually, I can find no difference XD

You can use whatever you like👍

So that's all today.

Thank you so much for coming here.

I hope this helps you.

And I'm always waiting for your comments.

See you next time~
