I’ve failed multiple revision sessions on one of the easiest radicals because instead of writing “rice paddy” I wrote “rice field”. I think “rice field” should be added as an alternative answer to the radical and kanji.
There is an option for synonyms. To this day I don’t even know what paddy means I just memorized it…
It’s essentially just a (deliberately) flooded field
Wikipedia calls them paddy fields, so I’d say it’s safe to call rice paddy and rice field synonyms!
“Rice field” and “rice paddy” taught me that I could add synonyms. I never saw that option until I whined about it on the forum and some user said, “Dude, just add a synonym!”
It was eye-opening for me. Don’t remember who it was, but that person really saved my mental stabilitiy, because I was going crazy whenever that radical popped up in my reviews.
