Now Out: Essay 1980 on 鎌 (Sickle) and 5 New-Monics

The 335th essay has posted! Essay 1980 on 鎌 (sickle) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

You may not need to talk about sickles, but knowing 鎌 helps you discuss crescent-shaped things; the “hammer and sickle” flag; sickle-wielding weasels; certain weapons; and Kamakura, a city where armies once battled for control of Japan. Kamakura is also associated with a giant Buddha, pigeon-shaped cookies, a painful part of canine history, and a word for “emergency.” 


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

Also, Ulrike created the following new-monics (which are free!):

維 (1007: fiber)
羅 (1887: net)
罵 (2092: insult)
弥 (2120: ミ sound)
弄 (2123: to play with)
