サ (sa) – Katakana
– Pronounced as the Japanese ‘sa’. Sounds closest to a stand alone English ‘s’ and ‘ah’ together – ‘sah’.
さ, in hiragana, or サ in katakana, is one of the Japanese kana, which each represent one mora. The shapes of these kana originate from 左 and 散, respectively.
Mnemonic 1: The guy who reaps the corn has been ‘sacked’ for doing a lousy job. The symbol for “ri” has therefore been crossed out.
