ルビー is the same as ふりがな.

But even if you gave something to show how to pronounce 加油, how would that help the person in knowing how to pronounce がんばって?

OK, I think I understand better now. Sort of like an international ルビー, right?

Does kana itself not fulfill that role? They tell you exactly how to pronounce the sound, and if you show someone a kanji with the kana (ルビー), they'll know exactly how to read/pronounce the kanji. Maybe I'm missing something here...

comment Difference between 〜げ and 〜そう
@MattN.: Since the た line is typed with 't', just use 'd' for the だ line, even if the romaji is a different letter.

comment Difference between 何の~ and どんな~
@Flaw: that sounds very unnatural and strange to me. I think you'd get some confused looks if you answered that way.
