Now Out: Essay 1846 on 娘 (daughter)

The 125th essay has posted! Essay 1846 on 娘 (daughter; young woman; girl) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

See how to use 娘 as "daughter" versus as "young woman." Find out what it means when people say "A bug landed on the daughter-in-a-box" or how a young woman can figuratively be a signboard. Learn why the Japanese would write "parent and daughter" in an ateji way, rather than as 親子. See how various performers and manga characters have connections to 娘, as do Amazonian troops!

I also posted Radical Note 38 on 女, the "woman" radical.
