ち (chi) – Hiragana
– Pronounced as the Japanese ‘chi’. Sounds closest to the English ‘che’ as in ‘cheap’.
ち, in hiragana, or チ in katakana, is one of the Japanese kana, which each represent one mora. Both represent /ti/ although for phonological reasons, the actual pronunciation is chi.
Mnemonic 1: This symbol looks like the number 5 with the top stroke out of place. £5 is a pretty cheap price for, say, a car.
