Now Out: Essay 1620 on 堤 (embankment) and 6 New-Monics

The 164th essay has posted! Essay 1620 on 堤 (embankment) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

Embankments save lives and could even be why we have government! But they're so well integrated into landscapes that you could walk on an embankment and not know it. See why Japan has built these structures for millennia. (A folktale particularly brings the topic to life.) Also find out about embankment stew, tsutsumi dolls, “super embankments,” and a "battleship seawall." 

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 six new-monics (which are free!):

窓 (919: window)
蔵 (923: storehouse)
存 (926: to exist)
暖 (932: warmth)
痛 (943: pain)
論 (996: argument)
