Caska's Japanese teaching

IF you don't read all the comments my LJ, you may have missed malathion's of a couple of days ago pointing out that caska runs a Japanese-learning LJ. Sweet! I never knew about this.

For that matter, I'm sure there's a lot of cool LJ stuff out there that only a small circle of people know about. LJ needs an Open Directory-kind of thing.

meaning: husband, man
人夫 == ninpu == laborer
水夫 == suifu == sailor
Originally a pictogram of a big (大) man with an ornamental hairpin, a sign of adulthood in ancient China. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic:  'Big man with pin through head is good husband.'.
