This part is a little different... Take it
slow and you should be able to catch on
PART ONE - ADDING THE "TEN TEN"
How to make the 'ten-ten' letters. A 'ten-ten'
is like a double- quote (") It changes the
sound of the letter to a harder sound. You can
ONLY 'ten-ten' the 'K' row, the 'S' row, the 'T' row and the 'H' row. (look at the chart to the
right - the red ones are the ones with slightly
look at the chart below. You will see that
the 'K' row becomes 'G' (still
the same good ole ka only with a ten-ten
; notice it is a harder sound)
the 'S' row becomes 'Z' (again
the 'T' row becomes 'D'
the 'H' row becomes 'B' or
'P' ('B' is with a ten-ten (ex. ba) and
'P' is with a circle (ex. pa))
Actually if you allow it to sink in, the
sound changes seem quite logical. You will get
used to it quickly
