How the Japanese print hieroglyphs. Japanese keyboard — Japan on DTF

Have you ever wondered how the Japanese type on a computer or type on a phone? There are so many hieroglyphs in the Japanese language. Let’s see how the Japanese print the alphabet and hieroglyphs.


In the video, a detailed analysis of how the Japanese type text on a computer and phone.

How the three types of writing work and interact with each other, why there are two ways of typing on the phone and how push-button phones have influenced this. The easiest way to show it is with the examples in the video, when you can see how the text changes and hieroglyphs are selected, but below I will give a short text version.

Frame from video

There are three types of writing in Japanese: the Hiragana and Katakana alphabets, as well as Hieroglyphs.

The entire alphabet of the Japanese language is syllabic and consists of 5 vowels (a, i, u, e, o), as well as a number of consonants combined with these vowels. k + a = ka, t + o = to and so on. In addition to them, there are also vowels ya, yu, yo, but they allow you to create syllables of a different plan and for this you already need to go further into the study of the language itself, which is not the topic of this post.

Hiragana (ひらがな) is mostly used to write Japanese words and also to create grammatical structures. All endings of verbs, nouns, questions, or connecting particles are written in hiragana. Each Japanese word can be written in hiragana, and then notice the word on the hieroglyph.

Katakana (カタカナ) — used primarily to write borrowed words from other languages, to write dishes on menus, or to write names. For example, many people think that their first and last name will be written in Japanese with some incredible character, but in reality it will simply be written in katakana.

Just an example. My surname is Shamov and in Japanese it will be written in katakana as シャモフ , which is read as «Shyamofu» , but the last «y» is extinguished, omitted.

On the other hand, Japanese names can be written in both hiragana and hieroglyphs. For example, one of Tanaka’s most popular surnames would be たなか hiragana or 田中.

Now let’s talk about hieroglyphs. In essence, these are images of words, like pictures. Some of the hieroglyphs even outwardly resemble their meaning.

Each hieroglyph has its own meaning and several readings (some up to 15), which are used in a given situation, or depending on what other hieroglyph they are in combination with. However, it is important that each character can be written in hiragana, which, in fact, is its reading.

For example, the tree you see above has the character which reads «ki» but can also be written as just hiragana き (ki) . However, the problem is that there are many hieroglyphs with such a reading, and in order to understand what exactly is being discussed, it is still necessary to write down the hieroglyph, and not the alphabet or understand from the context. If I write き き, then nothing is clear, but if I write it like this: 木 気, then you can see that two different characters are obtained, which both read like «ki», but at the same time have the meanings «tree (木)» and «spirit» , energy (気)».

A standard keyboard is used to type text on a computer. The photo above is my regular keyboard. You may notice that instead of the Russian layout, hiragana syllables are applied. If you want to print «ま (ma)», then there are 2 ways:

1. Simply press the appropriate button on the keyboard once.

2. Type m + a on the keyboard and the computer will automatically replace your «ma» with «ま».

When you type a word that has a character, the computer will automatically prompt you to select the appropriate character.

When printing to, the phone follows approximately the same system. You have two ways to type.

1. Exactly the same as on the computer. You simply select the on-screen qwerty keyboard and type Japanese in Latin, which is automatically replaced by hieroglyphs.

2. Or use dialing, as on push-button phones, where each button is responsible for 5 syllables. You need to press it several times, or swipe in the right direction to print the entire syllable at once. See photo below.

Thus, you can easily and quickly print any text on your computer and phone.

I advise you to watch the video, in which I show everything in more detail and with examples.

Thank you, I hope it was informative.

What do we not know about LGBT people?

According to a study conducted in 2015, LGBT people make up 7.6% of the country’s population, that is, approximately one person out of thirteen. Harima Katsuki, a psychotherapist working with LGBT people, talks about the challenges they face in everyday life.

Reasons for the loss of hope

In the magazine Shincho45, LDP deputy in the House of Representatives Sugita Mio published an article entitled “Excessive support for LGBT people”, where she practically repeated the phrase from the online TV program “From the Land of the Rising Sun”: “Homosexuals do not give birth, but our taxes are used to support them. Do we have some great debt to them? At the same time, chuckling, they said: “We heard that homosexual children have a high percentage of suicides,” and this, as in the case of the deputy’s article, was received with condemnation. Of course, it is unacceptable to laugh at any group for having a high suicide rate. Here, for example, data on a high level of suicidal behavior of people with a violation of gender identity.

As reasons for this situation, Dr. Harima cites a sense of alienation that increases during adolescence, when the body changes every day, loneliness, when a person cannot talk about his sexuality in the family and cannot be himself even at home, as well as bullying at school or at work.

The doctor says: “Added to this is the problem of love. For lesbians and gays, the problem is that the partner must also be of the appropriate orientation. Transgenders generally find it difficult to succeed in love. Even if there is love — if they part, they may well begin to blame that the person himself is not able to change, that he or she is not a real man (woman), that it is impossible to marry him, make children, that they have no future. Thus, in addition to the bitterness of parting with a loved one, the pain of reproaches is also added.

The appearance of suicidal thoughts is connected not only with the reasons described above. A person can bring himself to this.

Dr. Harima says: “There is such a thing as an internalized phobia. For example, if an LGBT character is presented in a bad light or ridiculed in a TV program, then a person learns such an attitude and develops a phobia – he refers to himself as a “bad person”. A transgender person may believe in rebirth and commit suicide in the hope that in the next life he will become a real man or woman. In addition, it can be said of all LGBT people that the cause of suicide can be the loss of a real sense of life. For example, a gay man may like a popular idol actor, but have to pretend that he is passionate about an actress. Or a transgender person can love men, and in conversations show that he is passionate about women, or vice versa, he loves women, but speaks as if he likes men. This may seem like a trifle, but if a person constantly lives a life that is not his own, then he does not feel that he is living. If you live and be yourself, then he faces discrimination and bullying, and if you portray someone who is not, then the feeling that he really lives disappears. Because of this, there is a loss of hope for the future.”

What can be done so that they do not experience disappointment?

“Now it’s not what it used to be — with minimal effort, you can find comrades on the net. Meeting with the same people, you can at least find your circle and get rid of the oppression of loneliness. There is a growing number of role models who come out and set an example of life in their own capacity. Such men and women show the possibility of living in a brighter future, and I would like people to live the way they like and make efforts to eliminate discrimination and bullying themselves.”

Outing from the object of love

However, it happens that a person, out of necessity, reveals his orientation to the object of his love, and he makes an outing, that is, makes public the sexual orientation or gender identity of the person who came out.

“Few people come to my clinic for consultations precisely because they have been outed. On the contrary, it happens very often. They come out for a reason — they want to get rid of tension, improve relationships, a transgender person may ask to be treated as a man or a woman. Therefore, I would like those to whom they opened up not to tell others about it, but to accept them as they are and ask about the reasons for coming out.”

Separately, it is worth considering coming out in relation to the object of attraction.

“There are people who complain to their acquaintances that they have received a declaration of love from someone, although he himself is heterosexual. So they can mask the embarrassment caused by this recognition, confusion. Coming out in relation to the object of attraction can be shocking. To deal with the shock, the person may want to share with someone. Therefore, in this case, outing is not malicious. However, being outed by the object of love can be very painful. It can even lead to suicide.»

Psychotherapist Harima Katsuki

Surgery as a way to cope with social difficulties?

Problems also arise for other non-malicious reasons. For example, for a transgender person to lead a life in accordance with gender at work, etc., the most important thing is the recognition of a change in gender in family registration books. Male to Female, that is, those who were born male, but feel like a woman, having changed their gender to female, will be able to use the women’s toilet and locker room at work. But in order to change the gender in the family registration book, in Japan, you need to undergo a sex change operation. Dr. Harima says, “However, not everyone wants to have surgery. Isn’t it scary to let yourself be cut? However, the operation may be considered by them as a way to solve the problem and a necessity. And without the operation, he feels as if not real, and at work it’s embarrassing to say that you don’t want to have the operation. On the contrary, if the operation solves many problems, including at work, then a situation arises in which a person seems to be obliged to do this, without leaving it for later. He feels pressure — as if they are waiting for him when he will finally go for an operation, and for those who do not do it, it becomes difficult to live in society. It turns out that the operation already exists not for the transgenders themselves, but as a way to solve social difficulties, and this is very scary.”

Is there anything we can do to avoid such a terrible situation? “It is necessary to achieve public understanding that, for example, if a person has a female gender identity, then he should be allowed to use the women’s toilet, even if she looks a little like a man. This may be difficult to arrange with public toilets, but is it possible to do this at least where everyone knows each other — in companies, in schools?

Respect for others’ orientation and gender identity

Lately, online and other media have expressed opinions about excessive support for LGBT rights, similar to the content of MP Sugita’s article. Literary critic Ogawa Eitaro, in the October issue of Shincho 45, which caused the closure of the magazine, published an article titled «Government will not help to cope with the problem of life’s difficulties», where he writes: «When a man smells a woman on a crowded train and he involuntarily a hand moves — life is extremely difficult for those possessed by such a mania … Shouldn’t society recognize their right to touch? Dr. Harima comments: “We should respect the orientation and gender identity of people. However, why does this only apply to orientation and identity — the fact is that there are forms of sexuality that infringe on the rights of other people — pedophilia, there are people who do not experience arousal without the use of violence. There are maniacs and rapists among heterosexual people, we cannot allow this. It goes without saying that sexual behavior without the consent of the partner is unacceptable among homosexuals. Because there are rapists among heterosexuals, we do not ban heterosexual behavior, just as it is impossible to ban homosexuality just because one of them engages in non-consensual sexual acts.
