Now Out: Essay 2081 on 頓 (Sudden), a Revision, and 8 New-Monics

The 184th essay has posted! Essay 2081 on 頓 (sudden; to stay in place, stop) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

Learn to say, "I didn’t have the slightest idea what they were talking about." That might be your experience if you hear とみに, やがて, ひたと, and ひたすら without having read this essay. It investigates those adverbs, as well as sudden movements and motionlessness (what a huge range!), wit and idiocy (another big range!), Dotonbori in Osaka, setbacks, tidiness, indifference, and much more.

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

Also, I've posted a revision of essay 1920 on 戻 (to return; revert; resume; restore; go backward). You'll find an explanation at the link. If you've bought this essay before, you can download an updated version for free.

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

海 (88: sea)
母 (203: mother)
毎 (206: every)
毒 (559: poison)
逆 (646: inversion)
久 (647: long time)
悔 (1063: chagrin)
梅 (1689: Japanese apricot)
