haha, I was so annoyed about 日本的 、and 土. A decent of my misses are from this kind of thing. I estimate previous Japanese knowledge can cost you a few percent extra misses cause you don’t have the exact WK meaning they want. Even though I add them, I haven’t been doing any kind of undo thing so, I get lots of Enlightened that have you wait around for another go, so my synonym can be used. Enlightened seems to be where I often forget the WK meaning and revert to my old ways.

I wouldn’t care if there was a feature to add your own synonyms, but most of your answers should be marked wrong.

Thanks for these!

Here are some changes we have made (or meanings we rejected):

  • 対応 – reaction: rejecting this as “reaction” is more close to 反応
  • 〜宅 - Added “one’s house” and “someone’s house” to the allow list.
  • 向ける - Added “to turn” to the warning list.
  • 裁判 – judgement + judgment → added them to the warning list
  • 迷う – to be perplexed → added to the warning list
  • 性病 – sexual disease → added it to the allow list.
  • 領域 – region → added it to the allow list.
  • kanji 張 – lengthen → decided not to add
  • word 靴 – boots → added it to the warning list
  • 無我夢中 – being absorbed in, totally absorbed → added to the allow list
  • 外面 – external appearance → added it to the allow list.
  • 血脈 Added “lineage” as the primary meaning, added “bloodline” as the alternative meaning, moved “blood vessel” and added “consanguinity,” “vein,” “family line,” and “lifeblood” to the allow list, and updated the meaning explanation.
  • 所属 - Moved “affiliation” to the primary meaning, moved “attached to” and added “belonging to” to the allow list, and updated the meaning explanation.

  • 無茶 - Added “nonsense” to the allow list.

Please note also that we don’t tend to add synonyms to radicals unless we have changed its meaning and kept the older meaning as a synonym. You’ll have to use the user synonym function for any other radical synonyms you’d like to be added.

A part from 房 (which needs some other work), all our counters have now been updated and should be consistent with each other. Let us know though if you see anything that you think is incorrect and thanks again for bringing it up.

困る - to be bothered

Such an annoying “miss” I just had to find this thread and report it. :sweat_smile:

Edit: while at it, 電子機器 - electronic appliance

Thanks I’ve passed these on.

I’ve added ‘to be bothered’ to the list of items that need looking at but not ‘electronic appliance’ as 電子機器 refers to smaller electronic items like a tablet or a phone whereas ‘electronic appliance’ refers to larger items like kettles or toasters.

Also, here are some changes that were made thanks to the suggestions offered:

(33) - Added “reverence” to the allow list and added “noble” and “nobility” to the warning list.
特質 (24) - Updated the meaning explanation.

余計 (20) - Added “superfluous” to the allow list.

暴力団 (21) - Added “criminal syndicate” to the allow list.

Thank you guys for your hard work!
Some more suggestions:

  • 外す – to take off
  • kanji 省 – focus
  • 受かる – to pass an exam
  • 核兵器 – nuclear arms
  • kanji 罪 – crime, sin
  • kanji 評 – criticism, comment
  • kanji 跳 – leap
  • 〜務省 – ministry (it works like that, but I misspelled it as “ministery” and got it red, because it’s too far from “ministry of”)
  • 間抜け – fool
  • 暴走 – running wildly

Thanks! This sounds like a useful distinction. I had never realized the word “appliance” has connotations about size (just domestic / kitchen use).

Maybe the word description could be expanded with this explanation to sharpen the mental image?
