To Wake Up
To Get Up, To Occur
intransitive verb, ichidan verb
This word consists of kanji with hiragana attached. Because the hiragana ends with an う sound, you know this word is a verb. The kanji itself means wake up so the verb vocab version is to wake up or to get up.
This word also has a secondary meaning of to occur. Think of it this way: when an action "wakes up", in a way it is occurring as well.
The reading is the same as the one you learned with the kanji, so tomorrow when you wake up you hopefully won't have to relearn this vocab's reading.
My father gets up at 6:00 every morning.
Did you wake up already? It's still 4:00 a.m.
A miracle may have happened.
