When you don’t see a card for months, it’s easy to forget “oh, that’s how it wanted it.”

I definitely encourage people to put in user synonyms early on. Like, “what are all the possible ways I might think of an analogous meaning several months from now.”

At least that one is unambiguous, there’s only one correct reading! The other one is a matter of remembering which correct reading this vocabulary entry refers to, which I will now. But still
My 体 needs a 休 after dealing with all these similar kanji
