Character challenges: September

Here are the challenges posted on our Facebook page and Twitter feed during the past month. We offer prizes (free Skritter time) for a few correct answers to our weekly character challenges.

Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for more challenges.

Here are some of the challenges this month:

Chinese 1: Guess what this is a mnemonic to:

“public road where every foot can travel” (by skritterjohan)

Japanese 1: Which kanji doesn’t belong?

旧、扱、急、級、球

Chinese 2: Which character does not belong in this group and why?

在、材、再、财

Japanese 2: Using possible readings as if ateji, what is this proverb?

意ッ牌破一鮭ヲ埜無、煮灰刃差毛沙卦ヲ野夢、産陪派左気火都ヲ之務。

Scroll down for the answers, but see if you can find the right answer before you peek! We will take a break with the weekly challenges over the summer, so this is an excellent opportunity to give us feedback. What do you think about the challenges?

Answers:

Chinese 1: No answer yet, send us a message on Facebook for a chance to win!

Japanese 1: No answer yet, send us a message on Facebook for a chance to win!

Chinese 2: 再 doesn’t share the same phonetic as the others (才)

Japanese 2: 一杯は人酒を飲む、二杯は酒酒を飲む、三杯は酒人を飲む。

These are our intended answers, but in some cases there are many acceptable answers.
