Your worst kanji to write.

Only counting the ones you've practised - what's the kanji you have the most trouble with?

I'm still very behind with writing kanji (only done grade 1 and some of grade 2). Of the ones I've done so far I'm having the most problem with the kanji for おしえる.

The Grade 4 link is dead.
It's case sensitive - had a "G" where there should have been a "g". Should work now.

As God is my witness, I don't ever recall hearing "ki no ha" for that.
Which "that" ?
I have always been under the (mis?)apprehension that 木ノ葉 is KO no ha.
It's 木の葉 that is under question.

RE: きのは このは ?

PsychoSP wrote: I've heard both. My perception of the nuance is that このは is roughly analogous in usage to 'foliage,' while きのは is like explicitly saying "tree's leaves" or "leaves on a tree." I think in this case きのは would be more appropriate. Interesting and plausible. If I get a second opinion th...

RE: Know Your Kanji

As detailed on the WagaWiki talk page I have been continuing to work on this project and you can expect a major (but not fully tested) release in the near future. I will post more details here when the work is at a more advanced stage.

RE: Paul_B back (for a bit anyway)

As this thread is still 'alive' I'll take the chance to say

"Yay! Computer fixed!"

which explains why my posts have dropped off again. Expect new news on the Know Your Kanji data soon.

Is there a particular reason you suspect it's not "ko no ha"?
I simply don't recall having heard that phrase said. Of course absence of evidence isn't evidence of absence as the saying goes.

きのは このは ?

Simple, if not necessarily easy, question.

How would 木の葉 be read in the following sentence?

木の葉はみんな落ちてしまった。
The leaves have all fallen.

My weird dreams might end up being an RPG game some day.
