I've finished posting the days of the week now in the 30 days of Kanji series I'm currently doing. I decided I would add an extra Kanji to my studying since it's useful and completes the use of the previous 7 Kanji for using to write the full weekday names. This is the Kanji I mean:
曜 - よう - weekday
As a compound word with another Kanji I've learnt we get:
- day of the week
Below are all 7 days of the week using the full Kanji. Each day links to the previous post on this site.
N.B. While looking at the meanings of the days of the week I noticed that there are similar Kanji and I currently don't really know when one or the other would be used. Each Kanji I have learnt seems to mean the day on its own but can also be used with 曜, and then they are also used with 曜日. One reference I did noticed on jisho.org was that they referred to the shorter version as Abbreviations.
N.B. Also in this post there is weekday (曜) and day of the week (曜日). I wonder if in Japanese it has the same use to split the weekdays (Monday-Friday) and weekend (Saturday and Sunday).
