Japanese[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From cursive man'yลgana ๆฑŸ, by analogy with other hiragana. First used by linguists in the Edo period.

Syllable[edit]

๐›€ (romaji ye)

  1. The hiragana syllable "ye".

Usage notes[edit]

  • ๐›€ and ๐›€€ are used to represent the Japanese language before the mid-10th century, in which /e/ and /je/ were different phonemes.
/e/ /je/
hiragana ใˆ ๐›€
katakana ๐›€€ ใ‚จ
In modern Japanese, old /e/, /je/ both evolved into /e/, and are both written as ใˆ in hiragana and ใ‚จ in katakana. Sound /je/ reintroduced later is written as ใ„ใ‡ in hiragana and ใ‚คใ‚ง in katakana.
  • ๐›€ and ๐›€€ are retrospective inventions. They were not actually used in the ancient Japanese literature (which uses man'yลgana instead) and thus are not included in the historical kana orthography.
