Now Out: 2 Radical Notes and 21 Revisions

My graphic designer Tiara is out for a monthlong maternity leave, and as she is the one who turns each essay manuscript into a PDF, there will be only one new essay in February (next week). Otherwise, I'll be writing Radical Notes and revising earlier essays. To that end, I am happy to present two new Radical Notes:

  • Radical Note 27 on the "cliff" radical 厂. Find out about a radical that may seem ubiquitous but is on duty in just five Joyo kanji, including 原 (107: field) and 厚 (672: thick).
  • Radical Note 31 on the "enclosure" radical 囗. See what distinguishes this square radical from the other boxy one, and discover a fun pattern involving kanji such as 国 (123: country) and 囲 (422: to encircle).

These resources are free!

Here are the latest essay revisions:
