Japanese Pronunciation

The Japanese language has only 5 vowels: a, i, u, e, o. They are terse vowels, pronounced clearly and sharply. If one pronounces the vowels in the following sentence one will have their approximate sounds. Please note: the "u" is pronounced with no forward movement of the lips.

Ah (a), we (i) soon (u) get (e) old (o).


"Kyosuke"- According to this boxed in rule of pronunciation, said name would be pronounced Kyo-soo-keh, when in fact it is pronounced Kyos-kei.

"Nodachi"- While actually pronounced No-Dach' " with a soft accent at the end, seemingly a mix of the h and the i hitting one another, abiding by this rule will once again cause you to look like a tourist, saying "no-da-chi" or something tourist-sounding.

"Temae"- meaning "you". Abiding by your rule, it'd be pronounced "tem-ah-ey". However it is pronounced "tei-mei"

"Hakuchi"-meaning "idiot". By your rule it'd be pronounced "Ha-koo-chee", but it is pronounced "ha-k'chi" with a very soft accent in between k and ch and the I on the end too is very soft.


Surely that is because the other letters change the tone of the sound

I thought I was saying U right somewhat but I felt something was wrong. Now I know how to say it correctly! Arigatou!
