Combinations of kanji can also be made to form Kasane, like 重 (juu, chou, e, omo, omo.i, omo.ri, kasa.naru, kasa.neru) meaning "heap up, heavy, pile up" or, for a 3-kanji combination, 香 (kyou, kou, ka, kao.ri, meaning "incense, perfume, smell" or 花 (ka, ke, hana) meaning "flower" + 沙 (sa, sha, suna, yonageru) meaning "sand" or 紗 (sa, sha, usuginu) meaning "gauze, gossamer" with 音 (in, on, -non, oto, ne) meaning "noise, sound."
