Now Out: Essay 1732 on 罷 (to Dismiss), Radical Note 122, and 8 New-Monics

The 181st essay has posted! Essay 1732 on 罷 (to dismiss, fire; quit, stop; emphatic verbal prefix) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

This kanji can be tough to remember, so the essay presents mnemonics for two yomi and the main meaning of 罷. Learn about the history of strikes in Japan and see how young people now perceive them. Find out how to say that a politician got the sack, British coalminers went on strike, and someone got away with something. Also learn to speculate about worst-case scenarios.

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

Radical Note 122: The "Net" Radical, 罒 and 网, has also become available. This resource is free!

Finally, Ulrike has produced a batch of new-monics (which are again free!):

以 (419: preposition indicating direction, time, or range)
固 (476: solid)
個 (669: individual)
妻 (681: wife)
似 (696: similarity)
箇 (1054: counter for things)
