り, in hiragana, (or リ in katakana,) is one of the Japanese kana, each of which represent one mora. Both are written with two strokes and both represent the sound Template:Audio-IPA. Both originate from the character 利. In the Ainu language, Japanese linguists invented a small katakana ㇼ that is used to represent a final r sound after an i sound (イㇼ ir).
