Now Out: Essay 1947 on 哺 (to Suckle) and 5 New-Monics

The 227th essay has posted! Essay 1947 on 哺 (to suckle) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

Let Japanese teach you about English! That is, Japanese terms for "lactation" and "mammal" are closely related. This is also true of "mammary" and "mammal," but English speakers rarely perceive such a link. Similarly, one Japanese word can mean "bringing up" and "breastfeeding." In English, "suckling" covers both meanings, but we miss this until we study Japanese!

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 a batch of new-monics (which are free!):

冬 (182: winter)
理 (220: logic)
詩 (291: poem)
酒 (302: alcohol)
終 (306: end)
