Five pronunciations of 日


Yeah, I've seen that before.  It is IMO part of what makes Japanese Kanji so fascinating and so frustrating to learn at the same time.  Depending on where you put a kanji character  (in front of a word, behind a word, as part of another word, or by itselt) will determine the meaning.


I foudn this article elsewhere, thought it might interest some people.

It gives an example of 日 being used five times in the same sentence, with 5 different pronunciations.
