Why does WaniKani have squiggly lines after some definitions, such as ~円 (Money)

I’ve been wondering this ever since I started using WK and wanted to know why.

It indicates that it’s a suffix. When it has that reading and meaning, it always comes after another word. Like 百円.


If I recall correctly, all the vocab with ~ so far have indicated counters. So ~ indicates that a number goes there. 100円, 二円, ect. ~才 number of years old, 22才

It’s not just numbers. There are actual suffixes like ~様 and ~的 as well.


I understand. I was adding on to how Belthazar already explained that, from the perspective of an early leveler. All the vocab so far.
