“di” for Hiragana and Katakana

September 12th, 2010 · No Comments

Hiragana "di"

This is "di" for Hiragana.

Katakana "di"

This is "di" for Katakana.

Even though these "ぢ" and "ヂ" are same pronunciation as "じ" and "ジ", we mainly use "じ" and "ジ" instead of "ぢ" and "ヂ" except following two cases.

  1. Only the words in which same two characters appear successively in a word, we use "ぢ" and "ヂ".
  2. Or when two words are combined and created new word, we use "ぢ" and "ヂ".

Example 1. 縮む(ちぢむ)-- 縮む(shrink)

Example 2. 鼻血(はなぢ)-- 鼻(nose), 血(blood)
