Abstract

Chinese and Japanese languages share a lot of homographs, which can be explained by Kanji in Japanese that were introduced from ancient China, and new words introducing from Japan to China after the Meiji Restoration. Despite the similarity in appearance, they underwent diverse paths due to the influence of different social life and culture. Based on the experience obtained in teaching Japanese, a second foreign language, this paper, focusing on the new words in the textbook Standard Japanese Language, compares homographs in Chinese and Japanese from the aspects of shape of character, meaning of word and usage, and analyzes the reasons leading to the differences between the two, so as to facilitate Japanese learners.
