Korean is most often compared with Japanese because the two languages have important commonalities such as common structure, harmony of vowels, lack of alliances and wide use of insignia, in which the social position of the listener has a great influence on the dialogue. In the 12th century, hiragana and katakana syllables were created from kanji, which gave the Japanese new freedom to write in their own language. From “karate” to “karaoke”, from “Azuki bean” to “Zen Buddhism the Japanese language for decades exported Oriental traditions to Western culture. Japanese children rarely use an educated language until adolescence, when they must speak a more mature language. Outside Japan, 5 million people speak Japanese to varying degrees, most of whom are of Japanese descent in Hawaii and Brazil. Unlike most Western languages, Japanese has an extensive grammatical system for expressing sensitivity and formalism. The Japanese are generally associated with the Ural-Altaic family, including Turkish, Mongolian, Manchu and Korean. Since the middle of the 18th century, Japanese have adopted a large number of “gairaigo” – foreign words, mainly from English. However, the pronunciation of Japanese is very different from that of Korean, and the two languages are not clear to each other. At present, Japanese is written with a mixture of these three words: “kanji”, “hiragana” and “katakana”. Since most relationships in Japanese society are not the same, a person is usually in a higher position.
