Word of the Week: Week 6
It is kind of late to post the Week 6 of Word of the Week, but here is it:
Day / Sun
ひ read as hi is the Kun-Yomi of 日. 日 can also be read in its Kun-Yomi as か (ka) or び (bi). While the On-yomi, 日 is read as にち (nichi), にっ (ni～) or じつ (jitsu).
日 as in ひ means day or sun, date or deadline. 日 as in にち is Sunday and the counter for days or day of the month.
You can check the strokes and how to write 日 here:
Tomorrow is Sunday.
明日 – read as あした (ashita) means tomorrow.
日曜日 – read as にちようび (nichi you bi) means Sunday.
(Notice that the 日 in both words are read differently. This is an irregular way of reading 日, that is not included in the On-Yomi or Kun-Yomi. This can be confusing but once we master the Kanji reading, we will be able to read difficult Kanji also.)
Today is Mother’s Day.
今日 – read as きょう (kyou) means Today.
(irregular way of reading 日.)
