We’ve got a couple of content updates to announce! WaniKani subject pages and lessons have gotten a makeover, and we’re beginning to roll out a new context feature for vocabulary!
What is changing on subject pages?
If you visit a subject page for a vocabulary word, kanji, or radical, you’ll see that the content has been reorganized. The navigational “Go to” buttons at the top of the page correspond to page sections, so you can quickly find exactly what information you’re looking for.
What is changing in lessons?
Similarly to the subject page, we’ve reordered the info in lessons by adding a “Context” slide. In this section, you’ll find word type info and context sentences!
New Feature: Common word combinations
For a select few vocabulary words, we’ve added a “Common Word Combinations” section to the “Context” section of the page. We added this because we want to provide you with more information about how a single vocabulary word can be used as different word types, and give you examples of words that frequently combine with the target word in each of its uses.
Check out this example from the 生 vocabulary page. Each of the examples given are instances of 生 used as an independent noun (meaning a noun that is not part of a compound noun). To see examples of 生 used in compounds, you can click the “in compounds” button.
This feature is brand new, and so it’s only going live on a select number of vocabulary. Also, it currently only lives in subject pages but it will evetually make its way over to lessons as well. Woo hoo! We intend to add common word combinations to more vocabulary as time goes on, so stay tuned for updates!
