I've seen the phrase 1ターン1度 "once per turn" used in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Card game, so it seems like ターン is a legit counter. But I'm not sure how to pronounce it. From what I've googled so far, some people pronounce it like いったーん which is odd because ターン is a gairaigo.

So how do you pronounce 1ターン?


1 Answer 1


Both いちたーん and いったーん are valid. (As an aside, わんたーん is also very common, especially when it's part of a longer phrase like 1ターンキル.)

There may be exceptions I'm not aware of, but basically foreign counters/units that start with K, T or P can be read both いち○○ and いっ○○.

  • 1カラット: いちからっと・いっからっと
  • 1キロ: いちきろ・いっきろ
  • 1テスラ: いちてすら・いってすら
  • 1トラック: いちとらっく・いっとらっく
  • 1トン: いちとん・いっとん
  • 1ペソ: いちぺそ・いっぺそ
  • 1ポンド: いちぽんど・いっぽんど
  • 1
    Speaking as an avid TCG player (Magic: The Gathering in my case), in my experience, わんたーん is the most common >_<
