Hiragana an katakana is baith syllabaries. In Scots we uise the letters o the alphabet. In maist wirds ilka letter staunds for a bittie soond (a phoneme). In a seelabary, ilka seembol staunds for a seelable. For example: in Scots we write “Wagamama” (selfish): ilka ane o the aicht letters staudns for a soond: “W-a-g-a-m-a-m-a”. Bit gin the wird “Wagamama” is dividit intae seelables thare is anerly fower syllables (blocks o soond): Wa-ga-ma-ma. In hiragana it is written wi fower seembols: わがまま.
