What's New

Now Out: 2 Radical Notes, 40 Revisions, and 4 New-Monics

Two new Radical Notes have become available:

  • Radical Note 34 on 夂, the “winter” radical: See all the ways in which the radical in 変 (581: change) and 夏 (82: summer) subverts expectations!
  • Radical Note 41 on 寸, the “inch” radical: If 寸 represents a Japanese inch, what is it doing in 寺 (133: Buddhist temple)? The etymology is illuminating, as is that of 導 (759: to guide).

These resources are free!

In addition, 40 essay revisions have posted:

See the Character Home pages at the links for details. If you've bought these essays before or if you have a subscription, you can download the new versions for free.

Finally, Ulrike created the following new-monics:

衝 (1411: to prick)
剰 (1418: surplus)
伸 (1431: to stretch)
浸 (1438: to soak)

Now there are memory tricks for all characters from kanji 1300 on up!
