Make a sentence with today’s word



Today’s article is about Mount Aso. Although I thought this mountain is called ‘Aso-zan,’ the furigana showed ‘Aso-san.’

There is a phenomenon called Rendaku, in which the latter part of a compound word transformed unvoiced to voiced. In the episode, I explained with a word, letter: Tegami. The word itself consists of “Te” and “Kami” but it became Tegami instead of Tekami.

It occurs when the latter part of a compound word begins with consonants, K, S, T or H.

So, following the basic rule, I thought it would be ‘Aso-zan’ however, NHK chose ‘Aso-san.’

There are some exceptions. One says if the two parts of the word are equally important elements, it doesn’t voice. Such as Yama+Kawa, Suki+Kirai. I suppose ‘Aso-san’ can be categorized in this group, a link above provides the stats of Furigana of Mount Aso.






Azumi’s Easy Japanese Small Talkをおうえんしてほしい

Thanks for accessing my content. I began this personal project for many reasons. Some are altruistic, others for myself. Both are crucial for me to continue this project. And, I am hoping if you can show your interest in my content in some ways. One way is contacting me via text. Another way is here, donation. It would be great for me to know that someone wants to listen to my channel. I actually do not like doing this kind of thing. You know, it could be a strong impact for me to receive, if it doesn’t work. In the end, the attempt to seek people’s support can show the reality that no one actually likes it. So, it takes 400th episodes for me to make this big step. So far, as I expected, no one has appeared yet. But, I am going to be patient, probably until 500th? haha So, if you’d be kind to support me, please visit the following link! ありがとう。
