    Nice to see getting some recognition. I like to compare its arguments with and with Henshall’s book; often all three have different etymologies, driving the point home on how wonderfully rich and messy and non–RTK-like kanji really are =) (except the phonetic components, which we are pretty sure were used phonetically).
