About the Japanese Language

Japanese is a language which originates in East Asia and there are around 128 million speakers, predominantly in Japan. In Japan, Japanese is the national language, but it is also spoken in Brazil, where there are over 1.4 million Japanese immigrants and the US, where there are over 1.2 million. In Hawaii, around 12% of people speak Japanese. It can also be found in other countries where you find Japanese emigrants, including Peru, Australia, Argentina and Canada.


Japanese has many different dialects, which vary in several ways, including pitch accent, vocabulary and inflectional morphology. The main dialects are Tokyp-type and Kyoto-Osaka-type, then sub-divisions of these.


The Japanese writing system is extremely complex and although foreigners can usually get to grips with the language, many never become literate with the language. The form of writing for the Japanese language is tategaki, and this has taken its inspiration from the Chinese system. Characters are in columns, which sit top to bottom and columns are right to left. Some political leaders can’t even get to grips with the Japanese writing system, such is the complexity of it.


As Japan had occupation of Taiwan and Korea before and during World War II, many people still speak Japanese in these countries. The same applies to China, some Pacific island and the Philippines, were there was some occupation. However, Japanese is primarily spoken in Japan.


Standard Japanese is known as Hyojungo and this is what is taught as a foreign language. Hyojungo is used in Tokyo.


There are no diphthongs in the Japanese language, so the vowels are pure, but there are monophthongs. In Japanese, there are five vowels, the vowel length is phonemic, with both short and long versions. The vowels which require elongating are denoted through the line over the vowel.


Verbs are always placed at the end of the sentence in Japanese and the word order is subject, object and verb. The grammatical functions in Japanese are denoted by the particles.


There are two writing systems used in Japanese; Kanji which comes from the Chinese writing system and Kana which is a combination of both katakana and hiragana.


Chinese and Japanese are different languages, however, much of the ideographs of Chinese were borrowed for the purpose of literature. Japanese literature origins date back to the eighth century, and the beginnings were from oral traditions.


Japanese vocabulary falls under three sources; the yamato kotoba (also known as wago), kango and gairaigo.


Yamato kotoba was the original language of Japan. In scholars, you will find this is referred to as wago. Nowadays, you will find that many words have Chinese roots and follow Chinese patterns. These are referred to as kango, and came into Japanese vocabulary from the 5th century, as a result of Chinese influence in the country. In the Japanese dictionary, kango makes up almost 50% of the language, wago almost 40% and the rest are either gairaigo or konshugo. Some Japanese words have also originated from the Ainu language. Japanese has a lot of sound symbolism, including onomatoporia and abstract words.
