Now Out: Essay 1207 on 迎 (To Welcome) and 6 New-Monics

The 191st essay has posted! Essay 1207 on 迎 (to welcome, meet, greet; send for) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

Eminently practical, 迎 plays a role in terms for shuttle buses, welcome parties, and phrases like "Your ride is here," "I’ll come get you," and "I met her at the station." But you can also use 迎 to discuss pandering, an optical illusion at dawn, and autumn leaves at their peak. Moreover, 迎 has a strong link to death, as in the case of spirits who welcome you to the other world before you die.

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

Also, Ulrike has produced a batch of new-monics (which are free!):

副 (576: secondary)
粉 (577: powder)
便 (582: convenient)
約 (591: approximately)
陸 (597: land)
販 (1715: marketing)

Incidentally, if you check out Ulrike's brick in the next-to-last row of the Great Wall of Kanji, you can see why 便 (582) is her favorite kanji!
