COUNTING PEOPLE We know a few counters already, like mai for flat objects and nichi for days, but now we have learned the one for people, nin. This is written by putting first the kanji for the number of people and then the kanji for people (read as hito, nin, or jin). The two exceptions to the rule of adding nin onto the end of the number are counting one person and counting two people. They are written the same way as the others, but when counting only one person, hitori is said, and when counting 2 people, futari is said. After these first 2, the pattern is normal with any number of people. Examples of usage: Onna no hito ga futari imasu. (There are 2 women.) Watashi no kazoku wa rokunin desu. (My family is 6 people.)
