- IPA: [ɺ̺ɯᵝ]
る (Hepburn romanization ru)
- The hiragana syllable る (ru), whose equivalent in katakana is ル (ru). It is the forty-first syllable of the gojūon order, and its position in gojūon tables is ら行う段 (RA-gyō, U-dan; “row RA, section U”).
- In some cases the suffix 〜る is used as a general method to form verbs (as a 五段活用 (godan katsuyō, “consonant stem conjugation, う-type verb”)), as in サボる (saboru), but this is much less productive than 〜する (-suru, “to do”).
