Katakana

Katakana is one of the alphabets used in Japan. It is most often used to transliterate non-Japanese words, and as most of these imported words are in English, you can have a good go at working out what they mean.

For example:

  • Coca Cola is コカ・コーラ which represents "KoKa KooRa" (the "ー" lengthens the vowel.
  • コーヒー ("kōhī") is "coffee",
  • ビール ("Biru") represents beer.
