Confusing katakana “so,” “n," “shi," and “tsu” (Second posting of two) / 紛らわしい片仮名ソ、ン、シ、ツ (全2回、後編)
*************************************************************
(Continued from the prior posting)
First, let’s make sure about the correct ways of writing “ソ so” and “ン n” in katakana. If you know them, you can read each correctly.
When you write “ソ so,” write a short downward line from top-left, and write a long downward line from top-right. The beginnings of the two strokes are ALIGNED HORIZONTALLY.
When you write “ン n,” write a short downward line from top-left, and write a long UPWARD line from bottom-left. The beginnings of the two strokes are ALIGNED VERTICALLY.
*****************************************
Next, we will work on “シ shi” “ツ tsu.”
The hiragana “shi” and katakana “shi” were made from the same kanji, and so were hiragana “tsu” and katakana “tsu,” and so the hiragana and katakana of the same sound form a similar shape.
*****************************************
For “シ shi,” write a short downward line from top-left. Immediately below that, write another short downward line parallel to the first one. Then write a long UPWARD line from bottom-left, just like “ン n.”
If you imagine a line connecting the three beginning points of the three strokes, it forms a similar shape to “し shi.”
*****************************************
For “ツ tsu,” write a short downward line from top-left. Near on its right, write another short downward line parallel to the first one. Then write a long DOWNWARD line from top-right, just like you would do with “ソ so.”
If you imagine a line connecting the three beginning points of the three strokes, it forms a similar shape to “つ tsu.”
*****************************************
A reminder ▶︎▶︎▶︎ “ツ tsu” is not pronounced when it is written a little smaller (in vertical writing, leaving a little blank space on its left side, and in horizontal writing, as in Facebook postings, l
