Japanese has a lot of homonyms.
For example, “ame” can mean “candy”, “rain” or even “Knit it!”.
In writing, kanji helps you distinguish them.
(E.g. ame – 雨 = rain, 飴 = candy, 編め = Knit it)
When speaking though, you cannot rely on kanji.
So this is where the pitch accent plays a role!
If you want more videos on the pitch accent, make sure give this video a thumbs-up and SHARE ♡
