One-letter- word ひらがな 一文字(ひともじ)の ことば

There are 46(!) basic syllables in Japanese. It’s a whole lot more than the English alphabet.
The good news is, if you consider this a good news that is, just one of those 46 letters can be a word. For example,

い (胃)i        stomach
ち (血)chi    blood
て (手)te      hand
は (歯)ha     tooth/teeth
か (蚊)ka     mosquito
き (木)ki      tree
め (目)me   eye/eyes

This may help you learn the 46 hiragana letters while already learning some Japanese words.
