そ (so) – Hiragana
– Pronounced as the Japanese ‘so’. Sounds closest to the English ‘so’ as in ‘soft’.
そ, in hiragana, or ソ, in katakana, is one of the Japanese kana, each of which represents one mora.
Mnemonic 1: Imagine a Z sitting on top of a C. The Z is telling the C – ‘Sorry’.
Mnemonic 2: You need to know some musical notation for this one. The symbol looks like a crotchet rest, just like in the musical score for a song.
