So many radicals?

How come there are so many radicals in WaniKani while there’s only 214 in total? What’s the difference?

OH I was looking for that. So they’re made up. Thanks!


I’d also add that there are a lot in each level right at the beginning, but it very quickly tails off :slightly_smiling_face: by level 8 you’re down to roughly 14 per level, and then from level 14 you’re down to about 7 per level (and descending).

So although it feels like a lot to learn at first the focus fairly quickly shifts more on to kanji themselves.


What WK calls radicals would be called Grapheme elsewhere.
