Lots of changes! New meanings for and , new reading… had to update all my notes on these. But the changes look good, so I don’t mind :slight_smile:

(except for i’ll personally keep the meaning ‘descendant’ because it’s the main meaning on Jisho, and the kanji is only used for one vocab one WK anyways - 昆布. also i’d have to make another reading mnemonic for myself with ‘insect’)

Thanks for taking my suggestion.

Maybe it would be nice to add the vocab 昆虫 or 昆虫学者 to reinforce the new meaning of 昆 ?

I memorized the weird “descendant” meaning just for Konbu? Wow, that’s underwhelming :smiley:

well, it can also help making a mnemonic for , which has 7 vocab items on WK :slight_smile:
and as Arzar33 said, there’s more vocab outside of WK, like 昆虫.

It’s a real mindfuck to have the reading change for hoist and “gist” turn to “charm” while I’m on level 43. I’m glad I saw the change before doing my last apprentice review for or I’d have a damn stroke
