Japanese (日本語)

Japanese has borrowed or formed a lot of words from Chinese, almost 60% of words are formed from Chinese. Korean, Portuguese, Dutch, French and most recently English have had a small contribution over the centuries.

...as a result the 'Kōgo' system is now the main form for writting and speaking.

Japanese characters

Each character represents a word, although as it has taken characters from Chinese which is an ancient language (eg:computer in Chinese 微处理器 is 'Tiny Management Machine', so four characters needed), modern words need two to three characters to explain one word. This is mostly nouns, as verbs and adjectives only consist of one character.
