Essay 2033 on 憧 (to yearn) Is Now Out

The 133rd essay has posted! Essay 2033 on 憧 (to yearn, long for; aspire to; admire; adore) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

This kanji enables us to talk about people we find hot, the professionals we admire, and the celebrities we worship. We can also use it to convey our yearning for a lifestyle (urban or rural), our dreams for the future (and how 夢 differs in this respect), and our longing for the past. See how the Japanese freely coin terms with 憧, leaving even native speakers uncertain about the yomi.

Using the accompanying Phrase Maze game on the Character Home Page, you can practice the vocabulary in the essay after reading it. 

In addition, I've posted a revised version of essay 1255 on 香 (fragrance, sweet smell; incense; perfume). Details are on the Character Home Page.
