Thank you, Jenny! :smile:

Can I ask what the thinking behind this might be? I’ve already burned it, so it doesn’t affect me, but I do often add kanji meanings to the radicals

I just tried to search for the word 夕方 on WK, but no results came up. Can this word please be added?

Hi @SevenZeven! The goal is to make sure that if someone accidentally answers with the kanji meaning for the radical, they won’t be marked as incorrect, but will instead be prompted to answer with the radical meaning. We’ve added this one as a test, with a view to covering all similar cases programmatically at some point in the future.

@RainbowBrite13 夕方 is on our list of future additions!

I only see one new context sentence for 返還.

Thanks for pointing that out! We’ve added another sentence.
