Guide: how to tell between Chinese, Japanese, and Korean
« on: January 08, 2018, 06:15 AM »
Chinese only has symbols with LOTS of lines
Like: 你在使用谷歌翻译吗

Japanese has some detailed symbols but also have symbols that are really simple (で,す,か...)
Like: なぜ私は空腹ですか?

Korean had a LOT of circles and straight lines
Like: 북한은 영광 스럽다.

If this guide has any use, you’re welcome!!

Yeah but kanji (Chinese) is used just as often in Japanese writing as their own characters (hiragana and katakana). Can you tell the difference between different Chinese characters (Cantonese, Mandarin, etc.) because I can't and Korean is pretty different from bofa those languages and easily recognizable because it's the most alien looking alphabet compared to every other alphabet on planet Earth.

Cantonese uses more traditional Chinese symbols while mandarin uses more simplified characters so mandarin will look more like the kanji in Japanese and Cantonese will look more complicated I guess
