Now Out: Radical Note 39 on the "Child" Radical, 16 Revisions, and 7 New-Monics

It's been a very busy time on this end!

Radical Note 39 on the “child” radical 子 has posted. Among other things, this free resource tells you why children are stuck inside kanji such as 学 (10: study), 字 (28: character), and 孤 (1229: solitary).

I've posted revisions of 16 essays! Check the links for details:

If you've bought these essays before or if you have a subscription, you can download the new versions for free.

I also added a paragraph about 慣用音 (かんようおん), the "popularly accepted pronunciation of a kanji" to both the Glossary (first section) and Guide to the PDFs (section 1.c.). The paragraph (which is identical in each case) starts with "I've been puzzled ..."

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

波 (367: wave)
発 (370: to emit)
淡 (1565: light)
徴 (1596: to collect)
懲 (1599: to chastise)
泥 (1623: mud)
尼 (1674: nun)
