I am seeking the keystroke required to write correctly the following katakanas :

  • WO as in スター・ウォーズ (Star Wars from english)
  • TI as in ティラミス (tiramisù from italiano )
  • DI as in ディズニー (Disney from english)
  • TU as in ブルートゥース (Bluetooth from english)
  • DU as in ブードゥー (Voodoo from fon or ewe languages)
  • SI as in メルスィ (merci from french)
  • ZI as in トロワズィエム (troisième from french)

I have copy pasted example to give a context.

  • For ティ/ディ you can (probably) use thi and dhi as well as teli/texi and deli / dexi. For the others, type x or l before the letter you want. – Chocolate Aug 2 '16 at 23:47
  • thi and dhi work. thanks as well as prefixing by x to minor the vowel – jibe Aug 3 '16 at 8:20

I don't know about Kotoeri exactly, but in the Microsoft Windows Japanese IME, you type an 'x' before letters you want to make small.

e.g. xi --> ィ  xo --> ォ  xu --> ゥ

  • it works. ありがとうございます ! – jibe Aug 3 '16 at 8:06

You can write the small characters by prefacing the vowel with X.

So the small オ is xo, small イ is xi and so on.
