々is not only used for Kanji?

Hi, I had this wrong. Apparently I am supposed to be calling it more generally “repeater” instead of “Kanji repeater”. Is this repeater also used for something else than Kanji?
I added a synonym, but maybe there is a reason it is wrong? Maybe it has a broader usage than just to repeat Kanji?

Even if it’s used in kana, this still should be a correct answer in my opinion

This is only used for kanji. Kana also has repeaters,ゝ for hiragana, ヽfor Katakana. Neither is really used.

Hey Denkigaku! I’ve gone ahead and added “kanji repeater” and “repeater kanji” to the allow list for 々.
