[prMac.com] Sofia, Bulgaria - Underplot Apps releases its third application in Apple's Appstore! The application is an educational game in favour of all Japanese learners. Matching the corresponding syllables of Katakana and Hiragana (the two Japanese alphabets) is the main purpose of our new app. That's why we named it Match Kana.
Kana is the common name of the two Japanese syllabaries Hiragana and Katakana. Every Katakana syllable matches with one of Hiragana, but they are written differently. Kana are the syllabic Japanese scripts, as opposed to the logographic Chinese characters known in Japan as kanji and the Roman alphabet known as romaji. There are three kana scripts: modern cursive hiragana, modern angular katakana, and the old syllabic use of kanji known as manyogana that was ancestral to both. The difference in usage between hiragana and katakana is stylistic. Usually, hiragana is the default syllabary, and katakana is used for foreign borrowings, onomatopoeia and interjections, and transcriptions of the Sino-Japanese readings of kanji.
The aim of this game is all Katakana and Hiragana syllables to be matched. This is an easy and enjoyable way to improve your Japanese language skills.
Enjoy your learning with Match Kana!
