View Full Version : Speak Japanese?

I'd like to know the correct way to write the word 'tanto'. (It's a Japanese knife) On some websites, the 'o' in the word has the horizontal line over it, which I guess is called a macron. On other sites, there is no mark. My question-Is it correct without the macron?

In Romaji, it's correct to present it as tantō.
