Now Out: Essay 1917 on 累 (accumulation)

The 490th essay has posted. Essay 1917 on 累 (accumulation; trouble) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

See what “heaps of corpses” means figuratively. Learn to discuss accumulated fatigue. Study 累 as “successive,” as in, “He gradually rose to higher positions,” “Successive wars completely ruined the country,” and “This place is his ancestral tomb.” Also find out about 累 as “trouble” in phrases for “to cause trouble” and a term for “dependents,” as in “He has no family members to support.” 

Ulrike is off but will return with great mnemonics.
