Facts about Japanese language
- There are a number of immigrant communities around the world that speak the language due to historical emigrant migration to South Korea, Taiwan, parts of China, the Philippines, Brazil (which boasts the largest emigrant Japanese population with 1.5 million speakers), Peru, Argentina, Australia, Canada (Vancouver), and the USA (California and Hawaii).
- Grammatically, nouns have no number or gender, and there are no articles. Verbs are conjugated for tense and voice, but not person. Japanese equivalents of adjectives are also conjugated. Japanese has a complex system of honorifics with verb forms and vocabulary to indicate the relative status of the speaker, the listener, and persons mentioned.
- Japanese has no genetic relationship with Chinese, but it makes extensive use of Chinese characters (kanji) in its writing system, and a significant part of its vocabulary is borrowed from Chinese. Along with kanji, the Japanese writing system mainly uses two syllabic scripts, hiragana and katakana.
- Japanese can express different levels in social status. The differences in social position are determined by several factors including job, age, experience, or even psychological state.
- Almost of 10% all Internet users are estimated to be Japanese.
- Hiragana is syllabic and the most original writing system in Japan. It is used for simple words, conjugations, particles and children’s literature as it is the first set of writing which is taught.
