Now Out: Essay 1670 on 豚 (pig)

The 331st essay has posted! Essay 1670 on 豚 (pig, pork) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

Sorry, vegetarians! This essay will be hard to stomach, as the bulk of 豚 terms involve pork. The good news is that 豚 also appears in fanciful sayings, harsh insults, and terms for other animals, including blowfish (“river pigs”), dolphins (“sea pigs”), and aardvarks (“earth pigs”). The bad news is that some of those animals also end up on people’s plates!

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

Ulrike is off this week and will return next week with more new-monics.
