Hiragana Page 59 Small Tsu

This part is a little different… Take it
slow and you should be able to catch on

 

PART THREE – Small TSU

One more thing… You have
learned


tsu – But sometimes it appears smaller
than other letters. This causes a slight pause or
break between syllables.

Example: chotto (which means ‘a
little’) pronounced “cho – to” with a
slight break between syllables. In romaji it is
usually written by repeating the next consonant
as with ‘choTTo.’

Example: zasshi (magazine)
pronounced “za – shi”


Homework
: Try to find some other examples on the internet
of the small tsu
