落とす - Typo Acceptance ‘To Fall Down’

Hi.

Wanikani teaches 落とす as ‘To Drop Something’ ‘To Let Something Fall’ ‘To Lose Something’

But it accepts ‘To Fall’

Is this correct?

Yes it is correct. To Fall is in the allow list which is a hidden list of allowed answers. Yo can check the content of the allow list with the Item Inspector script.

Why is “to fall” on the accepted list though?

I honestly don’t know. I only see it in the allow list. Why it is there is a mystery.

Ah, it sounded like you meant the meaning “to fall” is correct.

Yes. I said the meaning is correct because it is in the allow list, not because of my knowledge of the Japanese language.

It appears to have been added in this update.

I don’t know why though. Pretty much all transitive uses of “to fall” are archaic now, as far as I’m aware. It seems strange to me to accept it.

If I missed the reasoning somewhere, let me know.
