Now Out: Essay 1413 on 礁 (reef) and 5 New-Monics

The 277th essay has posted! Essay 1413 on 礁 (reef, sunken rock) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

Reefs lurk underwater, just waiting to cause shipwrecks, and the very components of 礁 may point to sailors’ anxiety about this. Read about fish that change gender, the connection between coral and fences, the reason some coral reefs are circular, and what a reef in outer space represents. Learn a kanji for “off the coast of.” And best of all, see what it means figuratively to run aground.

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

I posted a revision of essay 1261 on 絞 (to strangle; wring) after fixing a typo in the footer.

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

答 (185: answer)
級 (255: grade)
仕 (285: to do)
保 (787: to preserve)
褒 (1803: to praise)
