Wanna be an evangelist of Japanese culture: shin(Kanji)

Monday, February 27, 2012


Today, I want to introduce a kanji to you.

The word is "心".

This word has on-yomi and kun-yomi.
(If you don't know on-yomi and kun-yomi, please read a past entry of this blog!)

on-yomi : 心 / shin
kun-yomi : 心 / kokoro : =heart

This kanji's on-yomi is often put after other words.
For example, "自尊心"(ji-son-shin=pride) is one of them.
*There are the words that this kanji is put before other words.
 For example, "心臓"(shin-zou=a heart(internal organs))

This kanji is often used for a part of other kanjis.
Do you know what the kanji is?
