Now that I've learned how to write in hiragana, I'm redoing the modules I've learned so that I can practice them in hiragana. I have a question about the double length vowel O.
In the lessons, Ōsaka is written like this:
Why isn't it written like this instead? (lengthening the o with う)
Is it because the word begins with a vowel, or is that just an exception? If it's an exception, are double-length vowel exceptions common?
Thanks so much!
