Just found this yesterday but put it in the wrong thread! Sorry!

十月: it says it's "December." Isn't it October?

no such kunyomi as くだ for this kanji

onyomi should be きょく instead of きゅう

@bread:
>What happened to 屁 and 妾?
They are fun kanji but I'm trying to balance the obscenity with also being practical, and I don't think they're used that often.

This is just me being picky, but the top "flower" radical in 花 is 草冠, or "grass crown," so maybe it should be labeled as "grass top." Most of the mnemonics for the dependent kanji should work, with a few being tweaked here and there.

Not sure if this is intentional because you preferred how the mnemonic turned out this way, but I noticed that even though 育 works as a radical in 徹, they're presented completely separately. Here, I'll even give you a new mnemonic if you decide to fix it "the director raised his kids to do everything thoroughly in life, so they could get good grades and go to a good college and all that crap".

onyomi for 持 is "たい" when it should be "じ"

perhaps a good mnemonic would be "JI - Hold on to the temple with your hand and keep thinking of JESUS. This will keep Satan from pulling you away into a life of drugs and book-learnin'."?

This isn't an error, but you might consider explaining about ケ standing for 箇 and having the pronunciation か or が when you introduce it in 十ヶ月間. I know I was like "wtf is that small ケ that's pronounced か doing there" when I first saw it.

This was actually in the old version of Kanji Damage, but it looks like it's been taken off of the new one. I agree that this one should be back on the list even though we never see it, just because it's the origin of ヶ, the same as learning both 歳 and 才. Here it is if you'd like to see it:

箇 - itemized list

音:KA - the overpaid rapper listed all his CARS.

bamboo (竹) +hard (固)

Early merchants would carve lists of their inventory into scraps of hard bamboo.

U:*
特徴:BETA, PREFIX

14 strokes
訓:
熟語:
箇条:かじょう: an itemized list. wow, exciting! tell me more! (NP)(*)

三箇月: (FP)

sometimes you'll see this kanji next to a regular noun, to indicate that that noun is an item on the list.

The most famous example of this is, 3箇月: meaning, 'the third month on the list,' or, as most of us would say, 'March.' although, 99% of the time it's spelled like this : 三ヶ月. Which is good news, because you don't have to use the kanji. but bad news because - although they simplified 箇 into the katakana KE (ケ), they continue to pronounce it "KA" like the original 箇 kanji. what the fuck??? Seriously, even for Japanese that is retarded.

箇所:かしょ: a place. Not only a physical place - say, Paris or Leningrad - but a place or spot or rank on an itemized list. yeah.(*)

LOOKALIKES:

筒 - tube (hitler)

管 - pipe (crown)

箇:itemized list (hard)

The king with his CROWN smokes a pipe of hash, but the tube. sticks out of HITLER's moustache.

It's HARD to list all my vast stash of cash.



edit: I just noticed that this says that 3ヶ月 means "March," which it totally does not.

子 child - Chair Construction

On http://kanjidamage.com/japanese_symbols/5
子 child

椅子 ( いす )
chair (FP, 1/2 KANA)

Is missing:

格 character (aspect) + 子 child = chair ('cos obviouly the squashy character of a child makes them super comfy to sit on)

With a link to character / aspect at http://kanjidamage.com/japanese_symbols/613

Cheers!
