Topic: There are Some Suffixes that Represent People / 人を表す接尾語はいくつかある

When you add hito (person) to the name of a country, this indicates a person’s nationality.

For example, by adding jinn (hito) to amerika, it becomes amerikajin (American).

There are some other suffixes that stand for hito (person). Just like English suffixes – such as er, or, ist and an – depending on the word, different suffixes are used to stand for a person.

者 (mono / person) when read as sha is used in words such as shousha (winner) or hokousha (pedestrian).

The kanji 家 (ie / house) when read as ka is also used to stand for a person, as in onngakuka (musician) and geijutsuka (artist). It generally indicates that that person is an expert.

The kanji 手 (te / hand) when read as shu is also used to mean a person, for instance, kashu (singer) and joshu (assistant).
