Hoping you all can enlighten me. I’m in level one…so far so good. But I am already a bit confused about how there are different kanji that can have the same on’yomi readings. Should I even be trying to understand this so early on?
For example, I’ve learned “mountain” and “three” and they both give me “san” as the on’yomi readings.
Same thing for “mouth” and “construction.” It gives me “kou” and “ku” for both as well as noticing that the “nine” kanji can also be read as “ku.”
Do these just all have to do with context later on? The only thing I can think of is that it would be something like the English “close” as in -close a door, or -close to, in which one is a verb and it depends on context.
Sorry if there is already thread for this but I went pretty far down and didn’t see one…I also haven’t figured out how to type in kana on my mac yet…need to do that for sure.
