#16 What does 青 mean?



Hello, everyone.


It's kÜshi.


I help you study kanji and
Japanese.


When you study a language,

all you have to do is just get

used to it.


So I make this site

so that you can practice kanji here with

rich examples.


You can learn a lot from one sentence.


So let's go!



Today's kanji is 青


This is one of colors.


It's hard to image the meaning

by seeing it.


So remember it with all your heart!!





Reads: ao
Means: blue


Ex.

1. I have a blue car
...私は青い車を持っている
/Watashi-wa ao-i kuruma-o mo-tte iru/


👉私は(わたしは, watashi-wa) means "I"

👉青い(あおい, ao-i) is a adjective form of
青(あお, ao)

👉車(くるま, kuruma) means a car.

👉持っている(もっている, mo-tte iru) is
a progressive form of 持つ(もつ, motsu),
which means "to have"

For example,

(Normal one
→ progressive one)

たべる(taberu, to eat)
→たべている(tabete iru)


つくる(tsukuru, to make)
→つくっている(tsukutte iru)


走る(hashiru, to run)
→走っている(hashi-tte iru)


見る(mi-ru, to see)
→見ている(mi-te iru)


切る(ki-ru, to cut)
→切っている(ki-tte iru)


Unfortunately, there's no theory.


Get used to it with your love for
Japanese haha.



2. A blue face( to be pale)
...青ざめた顔
/Ao-zameta kao/


👉青ざめた is used only like
青ざめた顔

For example,
"He gets pale" is
"彼は青ざめている"
/Kare-wa ao-zamete iru/


青ざめている is a progressive form

of 青ざめた as you learned above.


👉顔(かお, kao) means a face.



3. Blue sky.
...青い空
/Ao-i sora/


👉空(そら, sora) means sky.


You can say it 青空/aoZora/, too.

There's no difference between

青い空 and 青空.

This is one of features of Japanese

For example,

A little bird
...小さい鳥
=小鳥

小さい(ちいさい, chii-sai) meams little
鳥(とり, tori) means a bird





So that's all today.


Thank you so much for coming here!


I'm very glad if you send me a comment.


I hope this helps you!


See you next time~
