Desenhando sem conhecer Kanjis

thumb_fontpark1A dificuldade de escrever em Kanji,foi resolvida com o uso de Tablets e Smartphones. Isso acarretara uma futura perda da capacidade de memorizar os tracos e a sequencia correta da escrita.Enquanto isso nao ocorre ,nos podemos brincar um pouco com essas ferramentas da Tecnologia e criar Arte ,ou simplesmente um Hobby . http://fontpark.morisawa.co.jp/culuture_fishWithout difficulty, Japanese people use a combination of four different types of character systems: kanji,hiragana, katakana, and the English alphabet. This is a very unusual system not seen in any other country in the world.

culuture_birdEach of the kanji characters, forming the core of the Japanese writing system, usually serves also as a word. Elements of Japanese culture have been embedded in these kanji characters through their forms and images. In addition,most kanji characters have two or more pronunciations and a variety of meanings. Take the kanji ” ” as an example. Pronounced as bun or mon, it indicates the code of expressing and recording words.

culuture_bunIt is actually a hieroglyphic character, showing how the collars of clothing, such as a kimono, cross over each other in the front when put on. The character originally meant ” aya ” or something twilled, but later its meaning expanded to characters and even to sentences. Another example is ” ” Pronounced as ji or aza, the lower half of this kanji character originally depicted an infant having a large head against its feeble limbs.

Meanwhile, the upper half or ” ben “, was originally shaped like something covered with a high roof to mean a house. Added together, the upper and lower parts show a child standing under a high roof. Its original meaning of giving birth to children and raising them, later came to be read as ” azana ” or nickname. Among the large number of homonyms in Japanese is ” yoroko-bu “, a verb meaning ” to be pleased, ” which can be expressed with different kanji characters such as: ” , , , and “. Just as the history of the kanji ” ” mentioned above suggests, generations of people have created different ” value added ” characters while attempting to give different kanji characters to the same pronunciations to express subtle differences in meaning.culture_yorokobu
