Language Facts About Japanese

Japanese is primarily spoken in Japan as the national language and in overseas Japanese communities as the home language. As an important part of the Sinosphere, the Japanese writing system is heavily influenced by the Chinese characters yet with its unique characteristics.

Origins and Evolution of the Japanese Language

The history of the Japanese language can be traced back to five thousand years ago when the settlers from the Korean Peninsula brought the Japonic language to Japan. However, it wasn’t until a thousand years ago when Chinese characters arrived in Japan that the Japanese writing system started to take form over time. 

Japanese adopted the Chinese writing system in the 5th century to record information. Nowadays, Japanese writing consists of three different scripts, Kanji (50,000 Chinese characters adopted by the Japanese), the later developed hiragana (phonetic characters for writing native words and grammatical particles), and katakana (phonetic characters for writing foreign names and words). 

Kansai, Hokkaido, and Kyushu are the three main Japanese dialects, among which, Kansai is considered the standard spoken Japanese.

Japanese Writing System

japanese writing system

The complex and fascinating writing system of the Japanese language provides a window into the long and rich history and culture of Japan. The Japanese writing system is characterized by a combinationof three scripts, which are kanji, hiragana, and katakana. 

The logographic kanji are Chinese characters adopted by the Japanese to write nouns, verbs, adjectives, particles, abstract concepts, native content or those originated from Chinese. There are a whopping 50,000 kanji characters with each having their own pronounciations and multiple meanings. 

The syllabic kana consists of two syllabaries: hiragana and katakana. Developed in the 9th century, hiragana are perceived as the basic Japanese writing system and are often used for native or naturalized Japanese words and serve as grammatical particles. Invented around the same era, Katakana are used for loanwords, foreign names and words, emphasis, and onomatopoeia.

Japanese uses hiragana in conjunction with kanji to write typical Japanese words, whole katakana is used to decribe foreign names or words.

Similar to ancient Chinese writing, Japanese reads and can be written vertically from right to left, and from top to bottom. As a tonal language, Japanese uses five different tones to distinguish between words with the same spelling.

Politeness and Honorifics in Japanese

translate from japanese to english honorifics

Keigo, the honorific speech in Japanese language, is used as an integral part of communication to show general politeness and respect to individuals of older age or higher social status. There are a wide range of Japanese honorifics used in various ways. Some of the most common ones are:

  • -sensei (used to address doctors, teachers, lawyers, or other professionals)
  • -san (common honorific used to address individuals of equal/higher social status)
  • -sama (formal honorific used to address individuals of high status)
  • -kun (used to address individuals of lower social status/younger age)
  • -chan (informal honorific used to address family members/close friends)

A8: When you need to get a general idea of a foreign text/passage and accuracy doesn’t matter to you, translation APPs can be an ideal tool. Some of the best English to Japanese converters include Google Translate, Microsoft Translator, and iTranslate. These apps come with amazing features such as text translation, voice translation, and dictionary lookup. However, the accuracy is questionable and could vary with different subject matters. It’s recommended to try different apps and choose the one that best suits your specific translation needs. But think twice before using such APPs to translate important/highly technical documents.

A9: While Google Translate can generate English Japanese translation instantly and provide a basic understanding, you need to bear in mind that the results may not always be accurate or contextually appropriate. Google Translate, or any machine translation tool in the matter, is ideal for translating simple phrases or getting a general idea. But when aiming for professional and accurate translations, it’s best to avoid using these machine-powered tools and work with experienced human translators who can understand the linguistic and cultural nuances between both languages and provide high-quality translations with a tailored personal touch.
