や, in hiragana, or ヤ in katakana, is one of the Japanese kana, each of which represents one mora. Hiragana is written in three strokes, while the katakana is written in two. Both represent [ja]. Their shapes have origins in the character 也. When small and preceded by an -i kana, this kana represents not a separate sound but a modification of that of another. や can be used by itself as a grammatical particle to connect words in a nonexhaustive list.
