For the kanji 代, I keep getting it wrong by typing “era”. It has the meanings, “period” and “age”, which are similar to “era”, but they’re not quite the same. jisho.org doesn’t include “era” as a kanji meaning, but to make things confusing, 時代 includes the definition “era”.
So would you guys consider the meanings similar enough to warrant putting the synonym?
- Yeah, they basically mean the same thing
- No, they’re different enough to not be synonyms
