The definitive hiragana and katakana reference poster
Hiragana, whose forms are rounded and flowing in shape, is used for particles, for verbal and adjectival endings, and for many native Japanese words.
Over the centuries many words from foreign languages were incorporated no the Japanese language, especially from Chinese and English languages. Whereas Chinese loan words are naturally written in kanji, non-Chinese foreign words are written in the katakana syllabary, whose form is more angular.
Kana Poster Features
Kana Poster takes the guess work out of learning the kana. Each characters pronunciation is indicated in roman letters.
Voiced & Unvoiced Consonants
Syllables beginning with the voiced consonants (g, z, d, and b) are spelled with kana from the corresponding unvoiced columns (k, s, t and h) and the voicing mark, dakuten.
Kana Poster organizes hiragana and katakana according to Japanese custom, known as 'gojuon'. Gojuon is the most common Japanese kana ordering system, comparable to alphabetical order.
