In katakana a long vowel sond is represented with a dash ( ). When we write katakana
words in romaji we also use a dash, either beside or on top of the letter we want to extend.
The small tsu ( ) is also used to represent the double constants. When we say the word
aloud, the small tsu ( ) gives a small jump in the word. When written in romajii, the small
tsu ( ) doubles the first letter of the next character.

ombined Sou
nds
As katakana is used to create
Japanese words from English words, more
combined sounds
are needed to be able to repr
esent all of the sounds in the English langua
ge. Not every
sound is able to be created (f
able to say tricker English sou
or example the “TH” sound), but these sound
s are useful to be
nds in Japanese.
These sounds are made by a
dding a small vowel to the original symbol.
