Learn How To Count Numbers In Japanese Language

Counting Numbers in Nipponese linguistic communication is quite easy, because they are logically made from combination of the Nipponese Numbers 1 - 10.

All you have got to retrieve is how to count,

  • 1 - 10
  • 100, 1000, and 10,000
  • In Nipponese language, we number 1 (ichi), 2 (ni), 3(san), 4(shi), 5 (go), 6(rokku), 7(hichi), 8(hachi), kyu(9), 10(jyu), 100(hyaku), 1000(sen), and 10,000(man).

    For example, the class of 10, the Numbers 11 - 19 are made of 10 asset the relevant unit.

    • Jyu ichi(11) = Jyu(10) + ichi(1)
    • Jyu travel (15) = Jyu(10) + go(5)
    20(ni jyu) is made of a 2 (ni) in presence of 10(jyu). You then add the relevant unit of measurement to do 21, 22, 23 and so on:

    In Nipponese language, this simple method is applied to the class of 100, 1000, and 10,000. So, if you desire to number 101(Hyaku ichi), you compound 100 (Hyaku) and 1 (ichi). In the lawsuit of 111(Hyaku Jyu Ichi), you compound 3 relevant Numbers 100(Hyaku), 10(Jyu) and 1 (ichi).

    By the way, allow me also explicate about the difference betwen the English numeration system and the Nipponese numeration system.

    In the Western numeration system we number in one thousands until we attain one million. The Nipponese system of counting is silghtly different. Instead of saying 10 thousand, there is an other word to stand for this amount. That is why we state "man" of 10,000, not 10(Jyu) 1000(Sen)

    So, in the ccase of 20,000, we state 2(Ni) 10,000 (man).

    You can also see the picture which explicate about how to number in Nipponese linguistic communicating as well.
