This is in reference to when the reading for a kanji/radical makes a self reference to it’s own kanji/radical where the mnemonic was previously given.
For example, https://www.wanikani.com/radicals/man
“This radical is the same as the kanji. It means man.”
When it comes up as a card, if I get that wrong, there’s not an easy way for me to recall the mnemonic used, as the there’s no link to the kanji for man.
If there’s an existing script that brings that definition in, a name would be greatly appreciated! Not sure how difficult it would be to write one if there’s not.
