Japanese syllabaries (alias for Hiragana + Katakana)


Katakana or Hiragana

The Japanese scripts of Hiragana and Katakana form the syllabaries used extensively in the writing of the Japanese language. Hiragana is typically employed for native words and grammatical markers, while Katakana is used for transcription of foreign words and onomatopoeia. Universal support for these scripts is facilitated through Unicode on various computing platforms and operating systems. The evolution of these scripts can be traced back to modifications of Chinese characters, with no singular individual or time period credited with their inception.
