Now Out: Essay 1271 on 豪 (Strong), a Revision, a Reprint in BOA, and 5 New-Monics

The 337th essay has posted! Essay 1271 on 豪 (strong; great; Australia; luxurious) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

Certain people stand out because they have strength of character, courage, free spirits, and loads of talent. We also tend to notice wealthy and powerful sorts, as well as the luxurious places they enjoy. Knowing 豪 gives us copious ways of talking about such people and places. It also pops up in words for “heavy drinker,” “torrential rain,” and “Australia.” 

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

Also, a revision of essay 1996 on 詣 (to visit a holy place; attain an elevated state) has posted. Details about the changes are at the link. If you've bought this essay before or if you have a subscription, you can download the new version for free. 

Over at Books on Asia, editor Amy Chavez was kind enough to reprint an excerpt of essay 1996 as part of her theme issue on hikes, pilgrimages, and journeys. 

Finally, Ulrike created the following new-monics (which are free!):

餌 (2024: animal feed)
叱 (2026: to scold)
蔽 (2104: cover)
璧 (2106: excellent thing or person)
辣 (2129: spicy)
