Usage notes[edit]

The term literally means “Chinese characters”, and refers broadly to any such ideographic or logographic character originating in written Chinese, or created anew along similar lines. This latter category includes some characters created in Japan from originally Chinese elements and called 国字 (kokuji, literally national (i.e. Japanese) characters), and other characters that were modified over time into distinctly Japanese forms and called 新字体 (shinjitai, literally new character forms). Contrast with 仮名 (kana, literally borrowed label), uniquely Japanese phonetic characters derived either from cursive forms of kanji (the 平仮名 (hiragana)) or from shorthand that abbreviated characters to use just specific parts of the original kanji (the 片仮名 (katakana)).
