Disclaimer: I'm not a Japanese learner, but I'm attempting a translation of a book, which has got a few examples in Japanese, among other languages, and I'd like to use Japanese characters, beside the transcriptions made using the English alphabet.
An English book I'm reading has an example in Japanese, but it renders it using the English alphabet, splitting apart some "words" to highlight what they mean in the sentence. To do so, it presents a table like this:
Hanako ga susi o tabeta
Hanako SUBJECT sushi OBJECT ate
the English meaning of the sentence being "Hanako ate the sushi".
My questions are:
- can I render those individual 5 parts of the sentence with 5 (or more) individual characters?
- And how do I put them together to get the whole sentence? As in, do I just put those characters side by side?
