I Can’t seem to get kanji’s with お or う right. For example, 刀 is とう. Anybody got some tips on this that will make me less frustrated ?
Words like 氷 are exceptions. If you don’t know that it’s お, then it’s most likely う
It’s almost always ～おう. Only very few examples are ～おお, so just learn those as they come.
Those are actually great tips - didn’t know they where that uncommon. Thank you guy’s!
When おう or おお appear within a single kanji’s reading, おう is the spelling used for words of Chinese origin. おお is used for words of Japanese origin.
