These kanji right here 伎、支、枝、技

I just wanted to say, screw you all for looking so much alike.

:rage: 伎、支、枝、技 :rage:

You’ve screwed up my ability to effectively recognize the ones I learned prior.

I wonder if WK will add 肢 (the し in 選択肢 せんたくし). And you still have 岐 coming later.

Those look very different to me. The others all look the same. At this point, it has become a guessing game of which is which when they come up. I used to have no problem with 支 and 技. 枝 came in and put that on shaky ground. Then 伎 came and wrecked everything.

I usually don’t have any problem with either of those. But right now. They are messing with me lol.

Well, the radicals do do a decent job of clearly differentiating them, I think. They all align pretty well with the standard semantic meanings associated with the left-hand radicals.

Sure, maybe when you slow down and try to pic them apart. lol Like right now, after posting these, I’m thinking, of course 枝 is branch - there’s a tree right there. And 伎 is deed because there’s the leader doing it. But when whizzing through reviews, they all run together.

This is partially why I posted topics like these. Making a deal out of it kind forces them to get right in my head.

Right, like if you devised a kind of… story to go along with each part of the kanji. :slight_smile:

Yeah, I’m just teasing.
