Regarding yesterday's راحة, because in my flashcards I put the Arabic word as the furigana above the Kanji, sometimes I read the "ra" syllable as "ri" instead. را (the Arabic letter of "ra") and リ (the Katakana of "ri" do look a bit similar, after all.
Regarding the topic about the "ri" syllable, I remember once I tried to write my friend's name which starts with the syllable "ri" using Hangeul. At the first syllable I was surprised that the Hangeul of syllable "ri" (리) kinda looks like the capital letters version of "ri" (RI).

Hufffttt... Memorizing the Kanji 気 (ki = gas) was kinda hard. There's a Katakana for "me" inside a mirrored squareroot symbol, with a horizontal bar above and a division symbol on the top. Wonder if I can write this Kanji by hand on my flashcard.

気 for 'gas' is a little weird. It is in 排気ガス, but mostly it has other meanings.

I used this page as reference, and it did say "gas" and "spirit". I wanted to go with "spirit", but it has multiple meanings in English and I didn't know which "spirit" description matched with 気. So, to be safe with the Arabic part on my flashcard I went with "gas" instead.

After all this time, finally I found a pdf version of Arabic-Japanese dictionary. Not only that, but I also got a pdf about Arabic sentence structure in Japanese language! Reading them will be fun. I don't have much time, unfortunately.

From this entry in my dictionary finally I can understand that the Japanese from "went" is "ikanakatta". I did know that the Kanji for the word "go" reads "i", but I didn't know how to use it in past tense. However, shouldn't the Arabic for "you went" be "dzahabat" instead of "tadzhab"? I'm getting confused here.

Trying to read the Kanji subtitle in the 28th opening of Detective Conan (with furigana) and encountered this line: 華やいだ白い道. Thing is, 華 was pronounced as "hana" (flower) instead of "kusa" (grass). When I asked about it to my brother who knows Kanji, he said that 華 indeed can't be read as "hana". However, he pointed it out for me that in some idioms, such meaning change can be justified as long as they are still at least a bit makes sense.
