Now Out: Essay 1579 on 蓄 (to accumulate), 3 Radical Notes, and 5 New-Monics

The 435th essay has posted! Essay 1579 on 蓄 (to accumulate) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

With 蓄 you can stock up on valuable things, both physical and abstract. Learn to say, “The food supply will not last till then,” “He conserved his energy,” and “Save something for a rainy day.” With terms for “vast store of knowledge” and “depth of meaning” you’ll be able to say, “This essay is a distillation of everything he knows” and “She’s good at giving a meaningful answer.”

I've also posted three Radical Notes:

See how the radical on duty in such kanji as 建 (473: to build) and 延 (814: to extend) was never meant to be there at all! 

Find out why 弋 is called the “ceremony” radical even though the shape symbolizes a hunting tool or piece of wood! And learn how to use this radical to represent three numbers!

See what 支 symbolizes and what it contributes to characters in which it’s a mere component, such as 技 (644: skill), 岐 (1121: divergence), and 肢 (1317: limb).

These resources are free!

Finally, Ulrike created the following new-monics:

矯 (1170: to correct)
愚 (1184: foolish)
遇 (1186: treatment)
薫 (1192: fragrant)
慶 (1204: celebration)
