If there is a radical, kanji, or vocabulary word missing an English meaning you know, you can add it to your personal user synonyms.
Go to the item’s page, click add, and type whatever you want.
You can also add synonyms during your reviews. After you’ve answered (correctly or incorrectly), click on the item info button in the middle of the page then click on add synonym on the left of the page.
If your first language isn’t English, you can use this feature to add translations as well.
WaniKani isn’t a dictionary, so it’s very possible that we don’t teach every English meaning for every word. We choose to focus on the most important meanings and readings instead. By taking away less important information, we are making it easier to learn more important information.
If you feel there is an absolutely essential meaning missing from an item, then you can contact us to let us know.
