They indicate the pitch accent of the word.


Do you know the meaning of the KaniWani pitch accent colors? They show multiple pitch accent but I’d to stick to Standard Japanese to not have broken speech and I have no idea which region each of the pitch accent they show is from.

They correspond to the parts of speech below: noun or suru verb. Heiban 平板 for when it’s a noun on its own and Nakadaka 中高 for when it’s used with する.

Almost all pitch accent dictionaries reference Tokyo-ben so you should be fine.

Ohhh thanks
