  • 8 April 2014New in the Study pages: Example Words!

    You can now see a selection of "priority" entries from JMdict (Japanese-Multilingual Dictionary) on any given character's Study page.

    You can also use the shortcut key D to view a selection of sample words during flashcard reviews (note these aren't optimized for mobile display, yet).

    I remember when I was going through RTK, I spent a lot of time looking up the characters in the Kanji Learner's Dictionary (KKLD). Having example words helps a lot to understand why Heisig chose certain english keywords, and it helps you make better mnemonics that more accurately capture the particular meaning, or common use of the character.

    There are some interesting directions I can take with this feature... I would like to hear from you though! Please post suggestions / bugs / feedback in this thread, thanks!
