日本語 (Nihongo) - Facts about the Japanese language
Japanese is of the Japonic family of languages and is most closely related to Ryukyuan, which although regarded by linguists as a separate language, is widely considered a dialect of Japanese by native speakers of the language. In Japan, there are dozens of regional dialects, which can generally be distinguished into three groups: Tokyo-type, Western-type and Kyushu-type dialects.
Japanese is written in a mixture of kanji, hiragana, and katakana. The Japanese initially adopted Chinese writing script for its written language. However, over time, Chinese characters (Kanji) were supplemented by two other types of scripts were developed. Hiragana and Katakana are both syllabaries, where each character is representative of a syllable.
