hiragana origin?
katakana origin?
spelling kana Hik?ki no "hi"

?, in hiragana, or ? in katakana, is one of the Japanese kana, which each represent one mora. Both can be written in two strokes, sometimes one for hiragana, and both are phonemically /hi/ although for phonological reasons, the actual pronunciation is [çi] , the sound would be nearer to be transcribed "hyi" in ro-maji. The pronunciation of the voiceless palatal fricative [ç] is similar to that of the English word hue [çu:] for some speakers.

In the Sakhalin dialect of the Ainu language, ? can be written as small ? to represent a final h sound after an i sound ( ih). Along with other extended katakana, this was developed to represent sounds in Ainu that are not present in standard Japanese katakana.
