Grade: 1
on'yomi

Etymology[edit]

ローマ (Rome, Roman) +‎ (character).

Note that it is not ×ローマン字 (rōmanji) – ローマ is from Portuguese, not English; this is an easy mistake for English speakers to make. Compare however ローマン体, which does use ‘n’, because that word is borrowed from English.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

ローマ字 (katakana ローマジ, hiragana ろーまじ, hiragana and katakana ローマじ, romaji rōmaji)

  1. Latin alphabet
  2. romaji (Japanese written in the standard 26-character latin script).
