Now Out: Essay 1951 on 錮 (Imprisonment), a Revision, Radical Note 167, and 8 New-Monics

The 186th essay has posted! Essay 1951 on 錮 (imprisonment) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

Take a walk on the dark side with 錮! Find out how to discuss the length and severity of prison sentences (possibly including hard labor) and punishments in the past that involved exile to remote islands. Along the way, learn several words for "imprisonment" and "judicial sentence," and read about spiral shells, tinkering with molten metal, and political unrest in ancient China.

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

There's also a newly posted revision of essay 1663 on 峠 (mountain pass, highest point on a mountain road; peak (of a crisis, trend, etc.)). You'll find details at the link. If you've purchased this essay before or if you have a subscription, you can download a revised version for free.

On top of that, Radical Note 167 on 金, the "metal" radical," has appeared. This resource is free.

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