Synopsis

If you want to display things for all the world to see, this is the kanji for you! Find out how to talk about everything from Help Wanted signs and bulletin board notices to flags hoisted on flagpoles. Learn to say, "It came out in yesterday’s paper." Come to understand the puzzling term "BBS.” Also learn to refer to the subject line of an email and to "aforementioned" comments. 

Revision History:

Aug. 23, 2019: 

  • p. 1: I added several kanji to the look-alikes list. 
  • p. 2: I updated the Sears link and revised the Henshall etymology to reflect what the new edition says. Shortening the Etymology Box meant that I could move Sidebar 2 from p. 3 to p. 2.
  • p. 3: The remaining sidebar on the page drew on a no-longer-valid etymology in the old Henshall edition, so I revised that text.
  • p. 4: The BBS called 2ちゃんねる is now called 5ちゃんねる, and I can no longer access that site, so I updated the text and deleted the link.
  • p. 11: I deleted a dead link to an Amazon product.
  • p. 12: I added a link back to this page so you can more easily access the game below.
