Combination Sounds

We can combine some hiragana characters to make combination


sounds which we need for words like isha () which means
doctor.

For example

Ki + ya = Kya

Mi + Yu = Myu

All you need to do is combine an i sound (like ki or mi) with a Y


sound ya, yu or yo.

Practice by writing each of the combination sounds into either


hiragana or romaji.

14
Make sure the y sound is written a little bit smaller than the I
sound.
Lets practice!

sha
pyo
chu
mya




Try these words!
(tea) ocha
(distance) kyori
(inn) ryokan
