Now Out: Essay 1259 on 慌 (hurried) and 6 New-Monics

The 403rd essay has posted! Essay 1259 on 慌 (hurried; flustered; panic) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

With 慌 we can talk about someone who is late, careless, or flustered. The same kanji helps us discuss mass panic about the economy or about an earthquake. See how the kun-yomi zooms in on the individual and how the on-yomi relates to the public. Learn to say, “The question threw him off,” “One needn’t panic,” and “Because he acts hastily, he’s likely to jump to conclusions.” 

Also, Ulrike created the following new-monics:

抗 (1246: anti-)
侯 (1256: lord)
貢 (1257: to support financially)
硬 (1260: hard)
項 (1262: clause)
菌 (1177: bacteria)
