A tool to show useful aggregated data based on your WK level (homonyms, frequency, part of speech, ...)

the kanji for 着く (i’m using it every day) is also used for 着る (very common, too). it also appears in related and very common words like 到着、着陸 and so on, so you’re likely to see it multiple times every day.
付く is less visible, because the number of related words with high frequency is lower. it’s also an extremely common auxiliary verb, for words like 思いつく、気づくand so on, but is then usually written in kana. so that means that, while 付くis by orders of magnitude the more common word, 着 is way more frequently used.

because of this divide, i’d welcome another stat “kanji frequency”, maybe as sorting option.
