Hi everyone! So I have been studying seriously for a couple of months already and now I just found wanikani because I was trying to understand better the kanji. I have an issue with the radical 九.
I have been looking how kanjis are made and I have found that the kanji are made by radicals and components.Each kanji only has one radical, but the parts of the kanji can be also Kangxi radicals. The radicals are the 214 Kangxi radicals with their variants and the components are other parts that can be kanji by themselves right?
Because on jisho they tell me that the radical for 九 is 乛 (乙, ⺄, 乚) and the parts is 九. In kanji alive they tell me that the radical is ⺄.
語 is composed by the radical 訁(⾔) and the components are ⼝ (which is also a radical) 、五(which is a component)
So my question here is, for wanikani everything is a radical?九 and 五 are also radicals?
